Parent involvement is highly valued by our school and can be a very rewarding experience.
The School Council currently consists of 13 members -8 parent-category members and 5 DET category members. It meets a minimum of 8 times per year on Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm in the staff room.

Being a member of the school council is a rewarding and challenging experience. Acting as a team, council supports the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students. Parents will be notified through the school newsletter when positions on the school council become available.
The School Council has formed a number of Sub-committees who have responsibility in certain designated areas. Membership of these Sub-committees is open to all parents. The Sub-committees meet as required and report to each Council meeting. All parents are welcome to join one of these sub-committees.
During the year, a number of working bees are held. It is hoped that as many families as possible are able to attend to offer assistance for an hour or so. The Buildings & Grounds subcommittee organise these as needed.
There are a number of opportunities for parents to be part of the day-to-day classroom activities. These include:
Please contact the school if you would like to assist. Be aware that parents assisting at school require a Working With Children Card (WWC). See below.
We love having volunteers helping out in our school. Please be aware though that any volunteers parent helpers, who help with children other than their own, must have a Working With Children Card (WWC).
