About our Parent Council
The Canberra Primary School Parent Council replaced the School Board and the PTA. Our members are volunteers who give up their own time to support the education of our children, organise events and fundraising activities.
The Parent Council holds monthly meetings to make decisions on the running of the school. The Parent Council is recognised in law, so the school and the local authority must listen to what your Parent Council says and give it a proper response.
The role of the Parent Council is to:
■Support the school in its work with pupils
■Represent the views of all parents
■Encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community
■Report back to the Parent Forum.
