As a Family-School-Partnership school, we not only understand that effective schools have high levels of parental and community involvement, we value the role of parents as the first and ongoing educators of their children. It is for that reason we have many opportunities for parent engagement in student learning and parent involvement in school community life.
In partnership with Rosewall Neighbourhood Centre, education and training opportunities are offered to parents and extended family. These include barista training, computer literacy skills, and the safe food handling certificate. These certificate courses are offered on school premises and within school hours at no cost to our families.
Through a partnership with City of Greater Geelong, positive parenting programs are offered to support families in building good relationships with their children. In partnership with the school, these parenting opportunities assist parents through the sharing of positive strategies to help raise healthy and happy children.
Our ‘Parents and Friends’ Association is a friendly social group of parents and guardians who meet regularly to help the school in a variety of ways. This help comes in many forms and includes initiating and organising fundraising opportunities for the school community, school fete, Mother/Father’s Day stalls, parent social events and much more.
Additionally, we welcome and encourage our parents and families to become involved as active members of our school community through being a classroom, canteen, garden, café or any type of volunteer. We value the rich and diverse skills and knowledge that make up our parent and school community.
