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.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – 24-hour advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

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.

Warrawee prides itself on having a group of parents who work tirelessly to support the school and its students.  There are many opportunities for parents to assist at school and/or be involved in the school's decision-making process via either formal committees or informal groups and gatherings.

Warrawee P&C Association
The education of students at Warrawee PS is very strongly supported by the partnership between the school and our community, represented by the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C).

The P&C has been responsible for many worthwhile projects and purchases over the last few years including:

  • the purchase of a demountable building for the Band and P&C
  • the COLAs (Covered Outdoor Learning Areas) on the Blytheswood and Finlay sites
  • the Centenary Pathway
  • $30,000 worth of school books
  • renovation of the Blytheswood toilet block
  • air-conditioning in many rooms
  • Lighting and sound systems for the Hall
  • A new K-2 children's Playground
  • the purchase of Smartboards for classrooms

    P&C meetings are held monthly.  Meeting dates are advertised in advance in the Warraweekly.  All parents are encouraged to attend and be involved in the educational discussions and decisions effecting Warrawee and its student.
