Get Involved

How can parents get involved at Warrandyte Primary School?

Classroom Help:
Teachers welcome help within the classroom. Parent Helpers are much appreciated at all levels during school excursions, special days, interschool sport events and celebrations of learning. In Prep to Year 2 you can volunteer to listen to the children read from their take-home books, or assist with a group activity in class. Speak with your child’s teacher about what time is best for you to help in your child’s class. Please note that all class helpers are required to have a current Working with Children Check.

FOWPS:
The Friends of Warrandyte Primary School (FOWPS) is a committee of parents who facilitate fundraising activities for our school. Each year, several annual fundraising events are held. Parents assistance on this committee is much appreciated.

School Council:
Parents are welcome to nominate to join the school council at the beginning of the year. Council is a valuable way to contribute to the school’s operation. Free training is available to parents on the role of the school council. Parents are also welcome to attend school council meetings as observers at any time.

Working Bees:
Several times a year, Working Bees are held at the school to help the maintenance and improvements of the school’s vast Buildings and Grounds. Any assistance on the day is much appreciated and may include tasks such as weeding, sweeping, painting, digging, or more specialised services. Working Bees are advertised in the school’s fortnightly newsletters.
