The parent-school partnership

The importance of parents and teachers working together is strongly supported throughout the school. It is generally accepted that when parents express confidence in the school and are involved with it in some way, the children are likely to be happier and perform better in the classroom. If children see their parents and their teachers sharing common beliefs, attitudes and goals they feel more secure.

Our P&C is an important component of the school community. All parents are entitled to membership. We recommend strongly that you become actively involved.

The P&C contributes to school programs in a number of areas, including:

  • Curriculum resources.
  • Sport and games equipment.
  • Grounds and facilities development.
  • Learning technology resources.
  • Library resources.

Funds are generated through a number of fund raising events.

The P&C Association meets on the second Monday of each month. The meetings commence at 7.00 pm and are held in the school administration block.

Parent education programs

Throughout the year the school runs a number of parent education programs. All parents are welcome to attend these. Keep a close watch on the newsletter for details. A large number of parents are trained each year in programs designed to support their children’s reading and writing.

Classroom volunteers

Many of the classes require volunteers to assist the teachers in reading, art or other curriculum areas. Parents are encouraged to assist if possible. Parents should sign a Volunteer Register book in each classroom.

Tuckshop

The tuckshop committee is a sub committee of the P&C. The tuckshop generates ongoing income throughout the year. The tuckshop is always looking for volunteers to assist on tuckshop days. Please contact the school if you can assist.

The Tuckshop Menu is available through the Facilities tab at the top of the  page.
