Our active Parent Council meets once per term and a new chairperson and office bearers were elected this term. To enable as many parents as possible to attend our Parent Council meetings we hold one during the day and one at night.

We also run a parent drop in session on a fortnightly basis; this is organised by the parents and supported by the school to provide any specific training support if required. The parents have worked hard this session and have raised a significant amount of money to help provide transport for trips for the children.

We are supported by a team of health professionals who regularly meet with staff, children and parents.
