All parents and carers of children attending the school are deemed to be members of the Parents and Citizens Association. Parents and Citizens Association meetings are held on the first Monday of each month with dates announced in the school newsletter. The Association aims to provide a forum to discuss any matters relating to the welfare of students in particular, and the school community in general. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate in discussion and decision-making.
The P&C Association organises major fundraising events throughout the year. Parental input is essential for the success of these events. All monies raised go to the school to benefit the children through new equipment, resources and special programs.
The P&C Association operates the canteen, uniform shop, school banking and fitness program. Managed by small sub-committees these operations rely on parent volunteers. Parent involvement in any way is much needed, encouraged and appreciated. With the support of all parents, the Association makes a distinct and positive contribution to the development of our school community.
Students are supervised by a number of staff in the playground at Break 1 from 11.00 –11.40 am and Break 2 from 1.10 – 1.50pm. Teachers on playground duty wear brightly coloured fluoro tops so that students can easily find them.
A teacher is on duty from 8.35am – 9.00am to provide assistance to students if needed. Students should not be on the school grounds before 8.35am and are not permitted on playground equipment before school. Students assemble in class lines on the basketball court at 8.57am for daily announcements.
After school students may go on playground equipment if under direct supervision of a parent or carer.
Children who turn 4 years on or before 30 April of the year of commencement are eligible for preschool.
The aim of preschools is to create and maintain a warm, co-operative learning environment where staff, children and parents are engaged in developing cooperative relationships, and increasing the abilities and skills of children. The planned program introduces children to the world around them by learning through play, participation, exploration and experimentation.
