Partners in Education

We warmly welcome parents to be active members of our school community and we value the contribution of parents in supporting the learning environment in many ways, including through:

The Friends of Kallista Primary School- our social and fundraising group
The School Council and Sub-Committees
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen-Garden program always needs parent helpers!
Classroom helpers, such as listening to children read, providing specialist subject support in an area of your expertise (the Arts, maths, science, computer technologies)
The Uniform Shop
Working bees
School excursions, sports assistance and special activity days
Information nights and open days and evenings, where parents are always needed… and appreciated!

All parents, grandparents and friends helping in our school environment are required to have a current Working with Children check. These are free for volunteers.
