Parents and Volunteers

The school encourages the participation of parents in its education program. Many parents help with reading, art, craft, library and administration tasks.The school encourages parents to volunteer their services to be members of Reference Committees. These committees exist to assist in the overall school operations and provide recommendations to the School Council.

Committees include Fundraising; Property Development; Gifted & Talented; Out of School Hours Care; Library; and Occupational Health, Safety & Welfare.
The school staff wish to encourage parental assistance. We would appreciate assistance in the following ways:
