School Community

Parent engagement and involvement play an important role in a child's education and overall development. When parents are actively involved in their child's school life, it can have numerous benefits, including improved academic performance, increased motivation, better attendance, and enhanced social skills. It also strengthens the partnership between home and school, creating a supportive and nurturing environment for the students.

Our Family Fridays are a very popular time for parents and friends to visit and volunteer for Reading Circles. You are most welcome to attend Family Fridays!

There are several ways our school promotes parent engagement and involvement:

There are several ways our school promotes parent engagement and involvement


Open Communication Channels


Establishing effective communication channels between the school and parents, such as newsletters, emails, parent-teacher conferences, and online platforms. This allows parents to stay informed about school activities, curriculum updates, and their child's progress.


Parent Information Sessions


Information sessions to educate parents about the curriculum, teaching methods, and assessment processes. This helps parents understand what their child is learning and how they can support their academic progress at home.


Volunteer Opportunities


Providing opportunities for parents to volunteer at the school, such as assisting on sporting days, helping out with stalls and reading circles. Volunteering allows parents to contribute directly to their child's school experience and build connections with teachers and other parents.


School Council


Encouraging parents to join School Council where they can actively participate in decision-making processes, fundraising efforts, and community-building activities. These associations foster collaboration and create platforms for parents to voice their ideas and concerns.


Parent Education Programs


Organising workshops and informational sessions for parents on topics like child development, effective parenting strategies, and academic support. These programs can empower parents with the knowledge and skills to actively participate in their child's education.


Family engagement events


The school plans a number family-oriented events such as Welcome Barbeque, House Fun Night, Look at our Learning, Sporting Events or Celebration. These events create a sense of community and provide opportunities for parents to interact with teachers and other families.


At Home


The school encourages parents and carers to be actively involved in their child’s learning at home. Supporting home reading is a high priority for the school in all grade levels.


We understand every parent has different availability and strengths, so offering a variety of engagement opportunities can accommodate diverse needs. By fostering a collaborative relationship between parents and the school, you can create a supportive educational environment that benefits the entire school community.

School Resources


The school regards its grounds and buildings as a community resource for community use. The school encourages the use of its buildings for meetings and after school activity groups. (Parental supervision will be required).


Arrangements to do so may be made at the office. A small fee is charged. The Yinnar Stadium is managed by the School and bookings can be made at the office.
