Parents & Friends Association

Schools are wonderful social places and many friendships are made between families. The PFA is a group of parents who plan, organise and lead a variety of social and fundraising activities.  Meetings are rotated between the morning and evening to maximise availability of parents to join, evening meetings are quite social. There is a core group of dedicated parents that regularly meet as the committee and other parents come to one or two meetings to help out with key events – all are welcome.

School Advisory Council

Parents are first educators of their children and have a lot to offer in the area of school improvement. The School Advisory Council (SAC) is an opportunity for parents to work with school leaders to create a better schooling experience for children and families. Typically the SAC is made up of 6 parents, from diverse backgrounds, and the Senior Leadership Team. Some of the areas of interest that are of focus in SAC include: School Strategic Planning, Child Safety, School Policies and Procedures, Learning Areas, Transition to and from Primary School, Extracurricular Activities, Home-School Communication and Partnerships.

Classroom Helpers

Our classrooms are always open to helpers, we are very grateful to the many parents, grandparents and volunteers that are part of our daily school life. Classroom helpers engage in a variety of activities, including reading groups, maths games, cooking classes, gardening and STEM projects. There are also many other opportunities to join in, for example, by covering library books, supporting our Book Week activities, attending excursions or helping out in the canteen. Schools are busy places and we love the support of families both in and out of the classroom!
