Parent involvement at A.P.S.

One of the best ways to get to know your school is to become involved in its activities and you can be assured that your help will be greatly appreciated. Some of the ways in which you can help at school are:


Reading: Parents provide invaluable help by listening to small groups of children in reading lessons. The children benefit because their work groups are smaller and supervised by an adult. Parents help in this way in all grades from Kinder to Year 6.


Library: Some parents give valued help in covering and repairing library books in conjunction with the school library. This also ensures that the books purchased by the parents are well protected.


Craft: Parents also assist teachers in this activity. Some parents do the teaching by passing on their special craft skills to the children.


Canteen: Canteen Services are available each Monday and Friday. Drinks and food are also sold at recess (11- 11.20 am) on these days. Lunch bags are supplied and orders must be placed before school. This service is provided through a roster system by volunteers to enable food to be sold at a reasonable cost. Helpers are always welcome and will be rostered by contacting the School Office (Ph: 6543 7271). A price list of food available from the canteen is sent home to parents.


Parents' & Citizens' Association (P & C): All parents are welcome to join this group which actively supports the school. A nominal membership fee is charged, which entitles each member to participate in activities related to this organisation and its sub-branches, as well as providing insurance cover for voluntary workers at canteen, working bees and other school related activities.
