Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Meeting times

The Parents and Citizen Association (P&C) and Parent Forum meet every term in week 5 at 7.00pm in the school's common room. The aim of this body is to promote the interests of the school through forum discussion by bringing parents, students and the school teaching staff into closer cooperation. Please become an active member of our school community by attending meetings. You will be made very welcome and you will find them most worthwhile.

Parent & citizens forum

We would like to invite you to attend our parent & citizens (P&C) forum meetings which are held once a term through out the year. Dates are on available on the school's website calendar and the meetings are held in the school's common room.

All parent/carer(s) are welcome to come along to be a positive participant in your child's education. Have your say in the activities and programs that we support. Come along to meetings and hear first hand from the principal about school matters. The parents & citizens association always welcomes new members, so, if you are new to the school or feel you would like to contribute, come to our next meeting. 

Meeting times

Meetings are held every second Wednesday of every month (dates available on the school's website events) start at 6.30pm in the school's common room.

Thank you to our parent/carer(s) who attend our meetings, your contributing support is greatly appreciated.
