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.

Message from the P&C

The P&C is very busy organising various fundraising activities, attending our monthly meetings and meeting with various people to discuss issues affecting the school and its operation.

With regard to fundraising, the P & C holds many successful fundraising activities throughout the year. We hold our usual Mother's and Father's Day stalls that the students always enjoy as well as an Easter Guessing Competition, End of Year Raffle, Disco and numerous BBQ's/sausage sizzles. We are pleased to have additional help from some more of our parents enabling us to provide Halal food at the BBQ's and thus better reflecting the culture of our school. 

We hope parents and students will enjoy the new covered seating areas near the stage. These were well timed for the Performance Day and Presentation Day dates at the end of 2015.

This year our fundraising efforts will be to continue the "Raise the Roof" campaign to gain enough funding to provide walkways to the newer demountable classrooms.

The P & C run the uniform shop from the HUB. The uniform shop opening times are advertised on the door.

The P & C are very active within the school and all parents are welcome to join.

On a final note, our thanks go to the hard working staff, parents, students, volunteers and families that make up Mt.Druitt Public School. Without your continued support, the P & C would not operate the way it does today. 

Mrs. Nicole Collisson
President of the  P&C committee
