Volunteering at school

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life.

You can help by:

  • listening to children read in the classroom
  • volunteering on sports days
  • helping supervise excursions
  • getting involved in fundraising activities
  • joining school committees.

Parents & Citizens Association

Kotara South Public School has a strong and active Parents & Citizens Association (P&C).  As part of the NSW P&C Federation we are committed to free public education for everyone, regardless of gender, cultural background, socio-economic status and academic ability. We believe that educating our children is a joint responsibility between both parents and teachers.

We would like to invite and encourage all parents, grandparents and carers to become involved in the P&C as it's a wonderful way to be involved in your child's education.  Through fundraising, the P&C is able to contribute to the school in a number of ways, including the provision of learning resources, leadership and life education programs, presentation awards, gardening and sporting equipment. We also are responsible for the operation of a wonderful healthy canteen and uniform shop. We further enjoy and support social and community events within the school.

There are many ways you can help out - it's not just about meetings, and you can still help out if meetings aren't your thing.  When you become a member you will receive meeting minutes via email.

Whether you are helping out at a Bunnings BBQ, doing a morning in the canteen, helping with school banking, doing some gardening, or have a great idea that you want to share to help out the school - these are all ways of getting involved with P&C.
