Parents, carers and the community

Parents and carers and the community

Parents and carers are an integral part of the YPS school community. Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child's education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life. As Covid-19 restrictions are gradually lifted, we will notify our community with opportunities to volunteer at school.

You can help by:
  • supporting our reading program
  • volunteering on sports days
  • helping supervise excursions
  • taking part in cultural activities
  • getting involved in fundraising activities
  • joining school committees.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans. The YPS P&C coordinate our school canteen and uniform shop, as well as planning and running fundraising events.

Our P&C meets on Monday evenings at 7pm in weeks 3 and 8 of each term.  All members of our parent community are welcome to attend.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – 24-hour advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Your child's and your family's wellbeing is our priority. That's why we created the YPS Wellbeing Hub, a free resource to support our YPS community.

We hope that you will find comfort knowing that you have a place to go when you need some guidance, reassurance, and ideas to promote wellbeing for you and your loved ones.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.
