Parents & Community
Spring Parks Primary School is involved in the Sporting Schools program again this year. This program is delivered nationally and is designed to engage children in structured physical activities. The after-school program offers fun, safe and inclusive activities providing children with the opportunity to develop essential motor skills and an enthusiasm for being active.
Parents and young children are invited to attend a FREE playgroup based at Spring Parks Primary School (West Campus) Activities each week will include a variety of painting, slime/goo, sand, water play, building, animals, music and stories and playdough to support your children exploring, creating and developing their imaginations. For more details, please call Spring Parks Primary School, West Campus on 9546 6402. The playgroup runs each Tuesday morning from 9am-11am. This is a joint initiative between the City of Greater Dandenong and Spring Parks Primary School.
English classes are held at the West Campus library each Thursday morning from 9 till 11. English classes are also held in the Valley Campus Library on Mondays, from 9.00am – 10.00am. The classes are free of charge.
Interpreters are available for all school events, information nights, prep transition sessions, parent/teacher interviews, workshops and for conversations concerning your child. We also provide multi-cultural aides for children as required. Please contact the office for further information.
Parent Community Cooking Club
Spring Parks Primary School runs a multi-cultural cooking club for parents and carers at our school. The program runs across both campuses in our fully equipped kitchens. Ingredients are often sourced from our gardens at Valley campus and it is a great way to meet new friends and have fun! All parents and carers are welcome. Please contact Suzy Winterbottom at our school for more information about this fantastic program.
Parent Computer Classes
Computer classes are held at the West Campus, in the computer room on FRIDAYS. They are free of charge.
The school council is responsible for the management of the school, including finances, buildings, grounds and equipment. The school council reports to parents through a formal written report and an annual meeting, as well as articles in the newsletter. School council elections are held each year, usually in March. School Council is made up of 8 elected parents, 4 elected teachers, the Principal and provision for 2 co-opted members. Any parent of a child at the school can be nominated for school council.
