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.

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.

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 – an 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.

Car parking

The school car park is for staff use only. Parents are asked not to walk their children through the car park as this can be dangerous with the movement of many vehicles at peak times. Two pedestrian gates are provided on Tramway Drive for your safety and convenience.

Need to see the teacher?

Parents who wish to see their child's class teacher are requested to call the school office for an appointment. Office staff will take your details and arrange for the teacher to phone you and arrange a mutually convenient time. Teachers are unable to speak to you during class time, playground supervision, assembly or lines as they have a duty of care to your children. Teachers have several commitments daily including playground duties, staff/grade meetings and will return your call at the earliest time available.

Change of personal details

Please notify the school, in writing, of any changes in personal details i.e. address, telephone numbers, emergency contact details etc. It is important that records are kept up to date in the event that we need to contact you urgently.

Messages to students

Telephone messages to students should be restricted to cases of urgency. Please ensure children are aware of after school arrangements before leaving home. This will ensure that they have a settled school day.
