Overseas and Australian Family Network

 

The Overseas and Australian Family Network has been created to ensure parents as well as students are included in the school community.  The school regularly convenes the Overseas and Australian Family Network to offer first language support to parents of newly enrolled EAL/D students should they need any assistance in settling their children into school.

Parents in the Overseas and Australian Family Network oganise meetings for their language groups to help parents feel comfortable about visiting the school and to facilitate informal discussion about school and school programs.  They also contact parents to involve them in school events such as the School Fete and the International Breakfast.  In this way the school establishes worthwhile partnerships between the people responsible for each child's education.  Meeting dates are notified via the school newsletter.
