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.
You can help by:
- listening to children read in the classroom
- volunteering on sports days
- helping supervise excursions
- getting involved in fundraising activities
- joining school committees.
Helping out in your child's classroom is always welcomed at Rydalmere Public School. Parent volunteers have helped in reading, mathematics, art and many other areas of the curriculum to support students. This has helped to create a strong and valued bond between school and home.
Please feel free to approach your child's teacher and talk to them. Your child's teacher will go through different areas where you may be able to help and they will talk you through expectations and routines.
Helping out in the classroom is a very rewarding experience for parents and caregivers. You get to know the class and see the growth and achievements of your child and their peers within the class setting.
