parent participation

We encourage all parents to participate in their children’s education and school operations.

Tyers Primary School has an active School Council.  The Parent Association has gone through many guises over the year and is now an informal group of parents who run the Hot Lunches and fundraising events.  The Tyers Art Festival Committee runs the annual Tyers Art Festival.

Below are some of the ways a parent can become actively involved in our school:

  • By becoming a member of the School Council Parent’s Association

  • Helping out as a classroom assistant 

  • By becoming involved in community activities

  • Participating in whole school activities

  • By taking part in special parent education programs

 

school council

Tyers Primary School has an active School Council. 

The major responsibility of the School Council is that of deciding the educational policy of this school. School Council is accountable for school evaluation, school finances, the maintenance of school grounds and buildings as well as the general oversight of the working of the school.

You can nominate to be a member of School Council. School councils comprise parents, the principal, staff and often community members. School Councils have three main functions: to look after policy, set directions for strategic planning and oversee finances.

Councillors serve a two year term of office with half retiring each year. Parents, new and old are invited to nominate for positions on School Council and/or to attend meetings.
