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.

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.

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.

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.

Our school is supported by an active P & C.  The P & C meets at 7:30 pm every 3rd Monday of the month, during school terms.  These meetings are held in the school staffroom.  All are welcome to attend.  Dates of meetings are published on the school calendar.

Our P & C holds many wonderful activities for the students and families of the school, and provides support for the school through resources. The efforts of all members are valued as they work together with our staff, for the benefit of our school community.


P&C minutes

Minutes of the Engadine Public School Parents and Citizens' Meetings were previously available through our website, however, as a school we have found them far easily distributed through our SKOOLBAG service.  

Search SKOOLBAG and find our Engadine Public School page.  This can be downloaded to smart phones to access copies of minutes. 

SKOOLBAG, like our Engadine Public School facebook page, is a valuable tool for communicating with families.
