Parents - Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

In addition to P & C activities parents are actively encouraged to assist at sporting events, transporting students and as helpers in the library and some primary classes (eg. listening to reading). If you would like to help in any way or feel that you have a skill that would benefit or enrich the education of our students we would like to hear from you. If you have the expertise and the time to share it please contact the Principal or Deputy Principal.

Parents who attend any overnight camps or school based activities must have a Working with Children Check (WWCC). A record of this is kept on file by the school. Parents who volunteer for 5 or more consecutive days in any capacity must also have a WWCC.

Parent Notes

Notes signed by a parent are required for: -

  • Excursions
  • Absences from school immediately on returning to school, these must contain a “reasonable excuse” for the absence as required by the Department of Education regulations.
  • Exclusion from Physical Education, Sports or Religious Instructions, etc.
  • Permission to leave the school grounds before the close of school for any reason, particularly at lunch and recess times. For all of theses occasions students are issued with an official DoE Leave Pass.
