As a parent or carer you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services and opportunities for you and your family.
Parent & Teacher Interviews
Parent and Teacher Interviews are an important opportunity for parents and carers to discuss the academic and social development of their children. In conjunction with assessment feedback, exam results and written reports they are another, less formal, way to review and support your child's progress. Visit our page Parent Teacher Interviews for more information.
Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life. Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers. You can make a contribution by:
- attending P&C meetings
- volunteering on sports days
- helping supervise excursions
- getting involved in fundraising activities
- joining school committees
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.

- Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.

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.
