PARENTS AND CITIZENS ASSOCIATION
P & C meetings are held on the second Monday from 7pm in the Annexe (next to the school hall) and all parents are warmly welcome to attend. There are a number of P & C committees, events and fundraising activities which all parents are welcome to participate in.
The school welcomes the assistance of parents. There are opportunities to assist in the classroom, in the library, in the canteen and with sport. Please let us know if you have time and would like to assist. To assist, you must sign the Working with Children declaration and provide the school with 100 points of identification. The forms are available on our school website, johnpurch-p.schools.nsw.edu.au under the 'NOTES and FORMS' tab.
A structured program is in place for a Parent/Tutor Reading Program. Its success depends upon many volunteer parents. It is preceded by a workshop. If you can help please contact the school.
Parking facilities at the school are very limited. Parents are asked not to park in the school grounds or walk their children through the school car park for safety reasons. There is a ‘kiss and drop' zone, with a 2 minute limit, on Purchase Rd. There is also street parking available on some sections of Purchase Rd and its side streets.
During Term 2 of each school year our school implements a peer support program that is run by our Year 6 students to assist the development of their leadership skills. This program focuses on the development of skills such as resilience amongst students.
PERMISSION TO PUBLISH
See Media Events- Permission
All permission notes for activities outside the school must be returned to the school signed by a parent/caregiver. Students cannot attend an excursion without a signed permission note.
PHOTOGRAPHY AT SCHOOL EVENTS
When attending school events, please photograph only your own child. If you are photographing other students, ensure you have their parental permission to do so.
The play equipment is very popular with the children and can be used during supervised lunch and physical education sessions. The equipment cannot be used before or after school as there is a requirement for a teacher to supervise this at all times children are using it.
Students are provided with opportunities to enter the Premiers Reading Challenge on a yearly basis. We also enter students into the Premiers Debating Challenge and the Premiers Spelling Bee on a yearly basis.
PROOF OF ADDRESS
Verification of place of residence must be submitted at the time of enrolment.
