Our School - Getting Involved

Our parents & citizens' association (P&C) brings the school community together. Parents, teachers and community members can help meet the needs of the school community and contribute to decisions about the school.

The P&C also raises funds that help finance improvements to our school and provide additional resources.

We rely strongly on the partnership between parents and the school to provide the optimum learning environment for children. Hunters Hill Public School is committed to encouraging the interchange of ideas and developing mutual expectations between the school and the community.

Parents provide invaluable assistance throughout the school, whether it be reading in classrooms, covering books, canteen help, assistance on Sports Carnival Days or with other special events, or participating in the P&C and its multitude of sub-committees.

Children love to see their parents involved in their school and the school certainly needs the support of parents.  

 

Helping Out at School

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child's education and to get to know the school staff and other parents. Research shows that children benefit when their parents are actively involved in their education and school life.

Keep an eye on the school newsletter for opportunities to help out at school and ask your child's teacher if you are interested in helping in the classroom.

You will be required to complete a working with children check beforehand.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • listen to children read in the classroom
  • volunteer at the canteen
  • volunteer on sports days
  • help to supervise excursions
  • get involved in fundraising activities
  • join a school committee.
