North Ingle School and Preschool prides itself on being a community school because it has active and supportive parent groups.
Participation and assistance of parents helps in developing a sense of community. There are many ways in which parents can contribute both to the school and your child’s education.
We welcome parent participation and support in classrooms. Assistance can be listening to children read, helping with IT lessons, general class organization tasks (i.e. sharpening pencils, sorting readers, support on excursions). Parents need to go apply for DCSI criminal history screening and Responding to Abuse and Neglect training. For further information contact the front desk or the principal.
Children look forward to sharing assemblies with their parents and the community. Assemblies are held every third Thursday from 8:45am to 9:30am in the school Hall. They showcase work undertaken and celebrate student successes.
Our canteen is completely staffed by volunteers which means our healthy food is affordable to all families. Canteen volunteers are always in demand. Please contact the Front Office if you are able to assist in the canteen. Canteen Opening Hours Thursday Recess and Friday Recess & Lunch.
A DCSI Relevant History Check is required to volunteer in the Canteen. An appointment with the Principal will need to be arranged to ensure all requirements are met prior to the volunteer commencing at the school.
Governing School Council
The North Ingle School Governing Council is a representative body of parents and staff and are elected at an Annual General Meeting at the beginning of the year. Governing Council set the broad directions for our school. Meetings occur in the evenings from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. All are welcome to join.
Parents Assisting Children’s Education (PACE)
PACE is a group of parents with flexible membership. This group mainly deals with special events at our school and fundraising. It is a friendly and active committee to be part of.
Friday Morning Coffee
Every Friday morning outside the canteen, you can purchase a Delonghi coffee and a biscuit for $2 and catch up with other parents. A very popular event.
The library also needs volunteers with re-shelving, covering books and other administrative tasks.
