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.

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.

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.

The P & C meet on the first Monday of each month in the school library at 7:00 pm. All parents are welcome to attend these friendly meetings. Please support our school. The P&C President can be contacted through the school Administration Office.

Important notice to all P&C volunteers

Under the current P&C insurance policy:

  • Student Helpers: Written permission must be obtained from parents if a P&C Association wishes to engage the help of students in the canteen. Such students are covered under the Personal Accident Policy.
  • Pre-school Children: Pre-school children are not covered under the Personal Accident Policy.
  • Pregnancy: There is no cover for women who are pregnant past 6 months from conception.
  • Age Limit: There is no cover for workers over 70 years of age and those workers must be told that their contributions are made entirely at their own risk.

A copy of the current policy will be placed in the canteen for all volunteers to review. Volunteers can also request a copy from the P&C President.
