Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – 24-hour advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

The Bundeena Public School P&C Association is the major link between the school, the parent body and the wider Bundeena community.

Its major priority is our children, their education and the environment in which they can learn. We encourage everyone to be involved in the P&C to find out how it works to better the school facilities and environment.

P&C meetings are a venue in which parents and interested parties can discuss their hopes and expectations for our school, and specifically our students, as well as raise any concerns any individuals or groups may have.

The P&C organises events throughout the year to help raise funds but also to provide opportunities to socialise with other families at the school. The P&C also operates the canteen, uniform shop and Scholastic Book Club with revenue generated through these also being directed back into the school.

P&C meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month in the school library at 7.30pm. All parents and members of the community are welcome to attend.
