Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

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 as well as fundraising.

The BPPS P&C meets monthly on the first Wednesday of the Month in the school staffroom at 6.30pm.

Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, including the 'Twilight Carnivale', the BPPS P&C raised $25,000 in 2018 to support the installation of the new landscaping project in front of the school hall.

The BPPS also runs and manages the school Uniform Shop located at the front of the school, nearby the gate in the north-eastern corner of the hall. Mrs Julie-Ann Frech is the Uniform Shop Manager. The shop is open Mondays from 8.30am to 9.15am and Tuesdays from 2.30pm to 3.15pm.

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.
