About Us

The Neutral Bay Public School Council provides a forum to discuss current school issues, projects and initiatives, determine school priorities, ratify school policies and work with the Principal on financial matters and budgeting. The Council comprises parent representatives, staff representatives and a community representative. For many years our community representative on the School Council has been Jillian Skinner, former State Member for North Shore and a past parent and current grandparent of the School.

The key goals of the Neutral Bay Public School Council are to support the values of the school, to promote the school within in the community and create conditions that maximise student achievement and enrich the educational program of the school.  Over the past few years the School Council has been involved in a number of initiatives to promote the safety and wellbeing of Neutral Bay Public School students and staff. This includes the appointment of a crossing supervisor for the Bydown St pedestrian crossing and addressing the safety concerns of the Yeo St and Ben Boyd intersection. The latter has resulted in raised curbing, new line markings on the footpath, and an extension of the pedestrian fencing. The installation of flashing lights on both sides of Ben Boyd Road is also planned in the future.

One of the recent areas of focus for the Neutral Bay Public School Council has been the future planning of Neutral Bay Public School which last year included an assessment of current and future building requirements to accommodate the increasing numbers of student enrolments in the school. As a result of this initiative, the NBPS Council is currently working with the NSW Department of Education and Communities on a number of building solutions and designs.
