Your involvement in our school community will enable us to extend the range of things we can offer the children. It will also show your children that we are working together, helping each other to help them.
We also believe that learning is a lifelong experience, and by helping at school we hope you will have the chance to try something new and learn alongside your child. Not only will you master new skills, but you will meet new people.
If you want to help out, talk to your child’s teacher.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP
Our PTA is vital to the running of the school, as they raise money to help us provide our children with additional resources and keep school donations at an affordable level. Much of the PTA's success can be attributed to their hard work and dedication, but they are also committed to having a good time. Perhaps you could consider joining the PTA and sharing in the fun?
If you would like to join the PTA you can talk to our principal, Simon Edmonds, or come along to one of the PTA meetings. Keep an eye on the newsletter to see when the next meeting will be held.
Parent Help in the Classroom
Reading to Children
Just as you read to your own children at home, children love being read to at school as well.
Publishing involves typing up children’s writing to create books/booklets. You will be shown the required format.
Art and Craft
No talent is required, just interest and enthusiasm! For some art and craft activities teachers will welcome your help supporting the children.
Library support may include helping children find books, issuing books or returning books to shelves. Training will be given.
This important task done by senior students, requires parents to watch over them. Patrollers are on duty:
before school from 8.30 – 8.55 am
after school 3.00 – 3.10 pm.
You can help with sports teams and events in a variety of ways, including helping with lunchtime sports groups, inter-school sports, and after school/weekend sports teams (such as touch rugby or netball).
This may involve providing assistance with supervision and/or transport. We have a variety of activities that require additional numbers of adults to ensure the children’s safety. With many parents working, this can be a challenge. It is hoped that all parents will help us by taking their turn to assist.
