Parental Involvement

We welcome parental involvement and engagement, as research has shown that when parents are involved children do better in school. 

All parents are welcomed and encouraged to:

  • be involved with their child’s education and learning;
  • be active participants in the life of the school; and
  • express their views on school education generally and work in partnership with their children’s schools.
