Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – an advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

Parents understandably have questions about how much time being part of the P&C committee can consume. For most, it's a simple commitment of 1.5 hours a month to attend the meetings. At these meetings, you have the opportunity to hear about what is happening at the school, be involved in school policy formation, participate in decision making about fundraising, and have your say on how this money is spent.

There are some positions on the committee that require a greater time commitment however these are voluntary positions such as president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. If your schedule does not allow it, you don't have to opt for one of these positions.

Apart from the monthly meetings (which occur only during school terms) committee members may also become involved in the organisation of fundraising events. This time commitment is minimal and again, you can choose to participate only as much as your schedule allows.

Our P&C meetings are held on the third Monday of each month, at 7pm in the library.

If you have any questions about the P&C committee or the meetings, please email woolooware-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au. We hope to see you at a meeting soon!

Upcoming P&C meetings
