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.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. Ph: 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. Ph: 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – an advice and information service. Ph: 1300 1300 52.

The education of your child and the ongoing improvement of conditions within the school are greatly assisted by the efforts of the P&C. Your support will guarantee continued improvement.

Meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month in the staff common room in the administration building, commencing at 6:00pm. All parents are warmly invited to attend.

Parents are actively involved in fundraising and consulted on matters of school policy. Parents are represented on the school's uniform commitee, staff selection committees, enrolment placement committee, finance committee and other committees established to review policies such as welfare and discipline, as required.

Special parent and subject information evenings are held throughout the year.
