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. Whole school events for social and fundraising goals are organised across the year.
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. A team also organises special lunch days, icypole and raisin toast sales.
Parent Helpers and Volunteers
We are committed to child safety at EEPS. To assist in the protection of our students from sexual or physical harm, a Working with Children Check and attendance at the EEPS Parent Helpers Course are required for parents and volunteers helping with swimming, excursions and camps. Attendance at the EEPS Parent Helpers Course is required for parents and family members who volunteer to work in classrooms and on incursions.
Parents are required to sign in at the office and collect a Class Helper Badge upon arrival.
