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.

Functions of the P&C are:

  • Host regular meetings to provide a friendly, open forum to welcome parents to the school and to allow the community to discuss matters of a general nature relating to the school.
  • Plan and implement fundraising activities throughout the year as discussed at regular P&C meetings.
  • Operate a school uniform shop to provide parents with the opportunity to purchase affordable school uniforms.
  • Operate a school canteen to provide students with the opportunity to purchase healthy, affordable food.
  • To support the school staff and students in enhancing an attractive, functional and sustainable environment in the school buildings and surrounds.

Meetings are held on the Thursday of Week 2 and Week 8 of every term from 7pm in the staff room. Everybody is welcome. Your children will benefit directly by your involvement in their school life. There is also a Rouse Hill Public School P&C facebook page to keep you updated.
