Your role at the school
Research shows kids respond better at school when their parents or carers are involved.
You can support your child by getting involved. You can, for example:
- volunteer to help:
- in the tuckshop
- in the classroom (e.g. reading)
- on excursions
- with fundraising efforts
- attend school functions (e.g. parent-teacher information nights and social activities)
- go to Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association meetings.
By being involved in your child's school you find out what's going on in the school community, have a chance to meet other parents and share experiences.
- Education for children with disability - a guide for parents offers a broad understanding of the support available in the state school sector.
- Information on education rights for children with disability is available on the Raising Children Network site.
