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. 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 Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics (STEAM)Night, Walking School Bus, Bike Education and the Arts. A team also organises special lunch days, icypole and raisin toast sales.
