PARENT INVOLVEMENT IN OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY
Fostering this important partnership with parents and providing an environment of nurture and care for students is a key attribute of our School, one which builds a strong sense of community and ownership for everyone who is involved. There are many exciting and unique ways to become involved, allowing everyone the opportunity to participate.
Leighland Christian School has a rich heritage which commenced with the formation of the Association in 1954. Your interest in Association membership is important to us and plays an important part in defining the school's goals and objectives into the future.

PARENTS IN PARTNERSHIP ( PIP )
PIP stands for Parents in Partnership. This is the name of our active Parent group at Leighland Christian School. Both our Burnie and Ulverstone Campus have an integral PIP group which hold regular meetings throughout the School term. The key focus of this group is to support school families by providing events such as parent evenings, lunch support eg 'hot lunches' and community events. From time to time PIP will also hold fundraising events eg Book Fairs etc.
Getting involved with PIP is a great way to connect with your child's education and it's a wonderful chance to get together with other parents and guardians to build positive experiences, grow resources and encourage two-way communication through a sense of community.
New members are very welcome with meetings held regularly throughout the term. Come along and get to know other parents and build your friendships too. Meetings are advertised in our School newsletters.
IN CLASS PARENT HELP
Teachers love when parents and guardians are available to assist in the classroom. Each class has it's own unique needs, from listening to students practice their reading, being available for field trips or helping with craft and art. Parent help tends to happen more in our Lower Primary classes but if you are interested, please chat to your child's teacher about ways you can assist.
