Joining the Parent Council

Being a Parent Council member benefits both the school and parents. The school gets parental input and feedback.  The parents find out information on how their child is taught, how the school operates and how it deals with all aspects of school life.

Parents also get to know the school management team & staff.  Joining the Parent Council has a minimal time commitment.  We meet up 5 times throughout the year.  We have a friendly chat with other parents and school staff over a cup of tea or coffee.
