Parents involvement

Communication between teachers and parents 

The teachers of Belgrave South Primary welcome meeting parents as we seek to develop the partnership between home and school.

During the year we will meet informally to get to know one another and more formally, through Parent/Teacher Interviews and written reports will be provided twice a year.

Parents are welcome to make contact with the classroom teacher through the school office.

 

The Parent Group consists of a group of parents who meet on a regular basis to organise events and projects which support the school.

The Parents Group organises activities such as Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day stalls help students and families as well as raise much needed funds for the school. Footy Day and special events days are fun activities for our students to share.

Funds raised are used to provide grants to classrooms for items such as maths equipment, games, computer software and literacy support materials.

We encourage parents to consider being involved in this group and to support their activities throughout the year.

The School Council is an important group of parents and teachers who are responsible for monitoring many aspects of your school operations.

Council consists of a group of elected parents and representatives of the teaching staff.  The Principal is an ex-officio member of Council. There may be a number of co-opted members of Council from time to time, specifically to address particular needs.

During monthly meetings, Council receives reports from the Principal, and the Finance, Education (Edcom), Facilities, Fundraising, Marketing, Out of School Hours, Pre-school and Stadium sub-committees.

All parents are invited to attend the meetings of Council and to be actively involved in one or more of the sub committees. Meeting dates are listed in the Thursday Newsletters.
