A full list of involvement opportunities can be viewed below:



helping out at school events, joining the School Board, assisting in working bees, attending school social events, attending parent information evenings – the list is endless.

Parent Representatives

We are always looking for interested parents to become Parent Representatives of their child’s class from Reception through to Year 8. The nature of the Parent Representative role will differ according to the developmental age of students in the class. 

Parent Representatives will assist the classroom teacher in welcoming families to the class and the school. They will also be involved in liaising with families and the teacher to facilitate strong communication, providing a sounding board for parents in relation to questions or concerns they may have about their child’s learning and wellbeing. Where appropriate, a Parent Representative may facilitate or coordinate gatherings for parents and families in the spirit of strengthening positive relationships. 

If you are interested in becoming a Parent Representative for your child’s class, please contact Director of Wellbeing Tania SIgley
