Parent involvement

Yale Primary School P&C Committee

The P&C meets regularly each month in the staffroom. Parents are advised of these meetings through the school newsletter. Parents are encouraged to be active members and attend these meetings.

Parent Roster

We welcome your visit to the Pre-Primary classroom as it is extremely important for your child. It shows that you are genuinely interested and care about their learning and it also provides you with an insight into the early childhood teaching and learning program. We understand that due to work commitments some parents will be unable to participate in the parent roster. In order to assist with the coordination of parent involvement, the Pre-primary operates a roster system throughout the year. The classroom teacher will provide more information early in term one.

Laundry

The laundry roster is voluntary and involves washing the towels and painting aprons used by the children during the school week. Your help in assisting with the laundry roster is greatly appreciated.
