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

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.

The P&C is an open forum for all parents. Any parent or community member is most welcome to attend meetings. While there is always a regular agenda to be followed, meetings are held in an informal and friendly atmosphere. The meetings give all those in attendance a greater insight into the operation of the school and an opportunity to have some direct input.

Our P&C is constantly in need of new faces, more support and fresh ideas. You would be extremely valued and most welcome to attend our meetings.

Our P&C meets every month to discuss planned school activities.

2020 Meetings

Meetings are held at 5.30pm on Thursdays of week 3 and 7 each term.
