Parent involvement at our Community School

Spirit of Play Community School attracts parents and families who care deeply about the education of their children.

“I love the inclusion of family and community in the whole school”
Parent 2015

We believe in building a strong school community through family involvement. The talents, energy and knowledge of all school community members, are valued and incorporated.

Our School Council

The School Council is made up of an elected body of parents, who convene regularly as a committee, with delegates of School Staff, to make and implement decisions.

As with all independent schools, our Council is assigned with the governance of the school.

Areas of responsibility include:

  • Providing a forum for the involvement of the parent body in decision-making.
  • Overseeing the financial management, strategic planning and policy development of the school.
  • Direction of the school’s unique educational approach to the Australian curriculum.

As a community school, we encourage all parents to have input into our program, and support the efforts of our Staff to create the best possible school life for our children.

This involvement may be through School Council, assistance in the classroom or on excursions, at Busy Bees or in organising School events.

Many hands make light work, and family participation helps to weave together a stronger school community, and a deeper sense of belonging for parents and their children, alike.

I like the fact that everyone has a voice and feel that being involved as parent is important.”
Kindy Parent, 2015
