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.

Parent-Teacher Communication 

Two-way positive communication between parents and teachers leads to improved social and accademic outcomes for students. 

Our teachers are available for face to face converstations, over the phone and through the Seesaw app. Seesaw has proven to be the prefered method for may parents to stay up to date with what their child is learning and stay in touch with their child's teacher. 

Talk to your child's teacher today about how best to stay up to date. 


Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Parents, as partners in the education process, have a right and a responsibility to play an active role in the education of their children.

If you are interesting in becoming an active member of our P&C please contact the school office for more information.

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.

Swimming Pool Safety

Drowning in swimming pools is a significant cause of preventable death in children under five years of age.

Pool owners are required by law to maintain the safety of their pool area and must ensure that children are properly supervised.

All pool owners need to be aware of laws.

Pool Safety information and requirements can be found on the NSW Government Fair Trading website and in the Pool Safety Barrier Booklet.
