Community Involvement

Various social events such as Tea and Tears, Trivia nights and the campout are organised. School Council welcomes interested parents who would like to be involved.  Meetings and activities are announced in the Newsletter.

Parents' views are surveyed each year. The surveys take place in August – September and use the Parent Opinion Questionnaire developed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.  

The school welcomes parents' participation in voluntary work.

Areas where parents currently help include:

  • School Council, and its Sub-committees 
  • Parents and Friends – special days/lunches for the children
  • Fundraising
  • Bike Education
  • Classroom programs e.g. hearing reading
  • Teacher/Class assistance – preparing aids, typing, computing, photocopying
  • Excursions/camps
  • Library – covering books, cataloguing, re-shelving
  • Working bees – arranged once a term and advertised in the Newsletter
  • Art room – helping with class activities and preparation

Please contact the school if you would like to help, or require more information.

When you are doing voluntary work in the school, please sign in and out in the visitors register. This is an Emergency Management requirement and is for everyone’s safety.
