Parent Involvement
Education is a partnership between teachers and parents. To this end the College encourages parental assistance in classrooms following an induction process which includes Child Protection training for Volunteers. Assistance occurs in regular lessons, including Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Arabic from Kindergarten to Year 6, following training sessions with teachers, and reading assistance for Secondary students. Parent assistance is also welcome for external events including Athletics Carnival and Excursions. Through parental involvement students are given additional opportunity to practice skills and parents are included in the learning process. This greatly benefits all stakeholders; students, parents and teachers.

Teenagers and Sleep
Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful — even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly. Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams, on the court or on the field. Remember: A brain that is hungry for sleep will get it, even when you don’t expect it. For example, drowsiness and falling asleep at the wheel cause more than 100,000 car crashes every year. When you do not get enough sleep, you are more likely to have an accident, injury and/or illness.
