We encourage parent participation at Berry Public School. There is a close relationship between school and the community.
Parents help, for example, in classes, coaching teams, as reading helpers, craft helpers, music tutors, parents who provide transport, Music Ensemble helpers, sports helpers, etc. Parents/carers are encouraged to participate in school life.
One group of volunteers, not necessarily parents, are the members of the Program to Aid Literacy (PALs) Reading Scheme. This is a St. John Ambulance initiative and is a vital part of our reading process.
All helpers/volunteers must complete the Working With Children Check This is a no cost application and needs to be completed only once and is not an inconvenience, but a safety element for our students. Information can be found on the WWCC website:
We are proud of the responsible and caring way our parents participate in school activities.
