They also organise the school fundraising activities and provide feedback on ideas and programs.
Parents are invited to attend many events throughout the year including our fortnightly Friday afternoon assemblies when they are also invited to join with the student leaders for afternoon tea and ‘school chat’ prior to the start time of 3.00pm. Parents are very active on School Council. We encourage parents and grandparents to assist in the classroom, on excursions, during sports days and to attend school events.
