Our Community

Opportunities abound at Eltham East Primary School for families to become active partners to enrich programs for the children and to build positive relationships in the school. The Community Activities Committee organises whole school events for social and fundraising goals. 

We also have a Caring Committee to support families in times of need.

Many parents and friends are actively involved with the school. They attend incursions,excursions, camps, swimming and sporting trips. In the classroom they help with:

  • Early Year Literacy and Numeracy
  • Perceptual Motor Program (PMP)
  • Making teaching aids

Other volunteers organise or assist with special projects such as our kitchen garden, Science Night, Walking School Bus, Bike Education and artistic murals.

Parent Helpers and Volunteers

A Working with Children Check and attendance at the EEPS Parent Helpers Course are required for parents and volunteers helping in classrooms as well as attending incursions, excursions and camps.

Parents are required to sign in at the office and collect a Class Helper Badge upon arrival.
