PARENT & GUARDIAN INVOLVEMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY
Fostering this important partnership with parents and guardians 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.
One of our goals in our strategic plan is to build strong, healthy and productive partnerships with families, churches, other schools and the broader community.
One strategy to achieve these goals is to review, reimagine and relaunch a school-wide parent partnership program, including development of parent-led pastoral care for families within the school community
If you have any interest in being part of this strategy within our school, please reach out to our Executive Principal's Personal Assistant, Mel Butcher firstname.lastname@example.org or 6425 0999.
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.

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.
To join parent-help, you must attend an in-person presentation with the Campus Principal (held several times over the school year), sign off on the new Child Safety Policy, and you must have a current WWVP to be able to volunteer as parent help in the classrooms or on excursions.
