Parent Participation

Reidy Park Primary School is increasingly aware of the importance of bridging the gap between home and school. There are benefits for everyone when you become involved in the school community. You, as parents, become more familiar with the things that are happening in the school, your children will take pride in seeing the work you have done and the staff appreciate the help given.

Governing Council

Reidy Park Primary School's Governing Council comprises of up to 20 members, including elected parents, one elected staff member, Deputy Principal and the Principal.

Nominations and elections for Governing Council are held at the AGM in Term 1 of each school year. Appointments to Governing Council are made for a two year period.

Reidy Park Primary School Governing Council Meetings are held in the library in Week 3 and 9 of each term 7.30 p.m.

Governing Council has a number of subcommittees:

  • Finance
  • Grounds & Facilities
  • Canteen
  • Education

Elected Governing Council Memebers are all coopted to at least one subcommittee. Parents who are not on Governing Council are also encouraged to join these committees each year. 


Many parents volunteer their time to listening to children read and assisting with reading activities. Examples include helping children follow recipes for cooking, comprehension and research work.
