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.

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.

The P&C is all about making our great school even better! Working with our Principal, Jenni Cope, and all staff teachers, the P&C is very active in creating a positive learning environment for our kids, and a safe, healthy, and friendly place for the whole school community. All parents are welcome to attend the monthly meetings or get involved in any of the various P&C activities throughout the year.

Parents and citizens meetings

Meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm in the staffroom.

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.
