EXPECTATIONS FOR PARENTS
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have a unique base of mothers, fathers and caregivers with a vast amount of experience and perspective that enriches our school. The expectation is that every family will contribute volunteer hours in a way that is appropriate to its time constraints and skill set. This is consistent with the belief that the children benefit most from a school community in which families are involved in the life of the school. All parents must be willing to serve on the Committee if required.
Does the school require or expect parents to assist in fundraising? Is there any fundraising at the school?
Yes, the school is a not-for-profit trust. We try to keep our school fees at an affordable level to ensure staff salary and running costs are met. We have an annual fundraiser Fun Day and all parents are expected to assist with fundraising, organise and run the event.
