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.

Volunteering At School

Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life. If you are interested in helping out, please contact you child's classroom teacher. 

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 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.


Our parents and citizens association at Glebe do wonderful things for our school community. On the left is our Glebe Annual Book Sale, a massive hit! If you'd like to get involved, send an email:
