Parents are the key interface between the school and the outside world. Commitment is not too much, attend the occasional meeting, meet other parents and along the way, make friends and have fun, whether it is the ‘splat the rat’ stall at the school fete, or watch the kids enjoy themselves at the school prom night.
PACT is a great way to help our school and our kids, building the sort of community we all want to live in
The PACT Meetings are held at the school on the first Monday of every month, at 7:00PM during the school terms so please come and join us. If you can’t attend the meetings but still want to get involved with the events, then please contact a member of PACT team via the PACT email address.
