The Parents’ Program commences with a Combined Parents’ Meeting (where all the parents meet together) on a Friday early in first term. Parents choose a time which suits them best to attend the regular small group meetings. Parents are then required to attend consistently at the same time each week.
The school provides care for children (prep age and upwards) during these meetings. Approximately once each term, a Combined Parents’ Meeting is held. From time to time, guest presenters will be invited to address parents to share their understanding of relevant issues. This may occur through Combined Parents’ meetings, seminars or workshops.
Parents also assist in caring for the grounds and buildings through working bees and participate in preparing cooked meals which are served to the children twice each week.
