Building a Community of Life-long Learners
The diversity of our community is a special feature of our school and we value this greatly. Our population largely encompasses Vietnamese, Cambodian, Chinese and English-speaking children and our community partnerships include the local Chinese School and Samoan Church. Adult English Classes, Computer and cooking classes are also conducted on our site to further engage with the wider community. Throughout the year we run family fun nights to support the curriculum areas of physical education, maths and science. Community partnerships with Bunnings, Officeworks and the Dingley Church offer our children Breakfast Club on both sites.
Homework Club, lunchtime clubs and Active After School Sport Programs offer support to students and their families, and allow students additional time to develop skills and engagement within the school community. Participation in National Tree Planting Day, ANZAC Day Ceremonies, Clean Up Australia Day, and Active April give families an opportunity to engage within the broader community. Parent forums are held throughout the year on topics such as:-
- Getting your child ready for school
- Helping your child to read
- Coping with Grief
- What should I pack for lunch?
- The importance of the swimming and camp programs
Individual and family intervention and support is available to our families as required. Our school has a wellbeing team, and counselling support is available. Please contact our Admin staff on either campus if you would like more information.
