Any parent or carer who has a child at Canberra Primary School automatically becomes a member of the Parent forum. You can join the Parent Council at any time. There is a set number of members who attend the meetings and have voting rights. You can also attend these meetings as an observer. 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 consult with and fully represent the views of the parent forum (all parents and carers of pupils); to assist the head teacher in the development of the school and to promote parental involvement in the school. We report back to parents through our newsletter and website.
We would like to encourage as many parents, grandparents and others from the Parent Forum to become actively involved in the supporting their children in the school.
