How to get involved?

Coming together to enhance the lives of our students.

Parental involvement in a child’s learning is a significant leverage point for enhancing the self-esteem and wellbeing of children and young people – as well as for improving academic achievements.

At our school, we welcome parent involvement through:

  • Active participation: this includes parents enriching their Montessori knowledge by attending our discussion nights, and taking a keen interest in their child’s development by booking classroom observations in their child’s classroom.
  • Giving your time: this includes parents donating their time and expertise to our board or one of our sub-committees; volunteering at school excursions; serving as a chaperone at school events; providing support to teachers and education assistants; or taking the time to do the School laundry.
  • Assisting with our fundraising endeavours to support our school’s growth and development: this includes parents participating in our school events – attending, volunteering, and/or donating – as well as supporting our students in their fundraising efforts, e.g., supporting the secondary students raise money for their biennial trips.

Parent Discussion Nights

Understand concepts and discuss ideas.

Each term, we hold parent discussion nights, which are short talks given on some aspect of Montessori education or philosophy, followed by a discussion among staff and parents.

We encourage current parents at the school, as well as families considering our school, to attend these discussions nights to hear the talk, ask questions, and meet teachers and other parents.

Classroom Observations

One of the best ways to truly understand the Montessori difference is to see students at work.

Observing the child is at the heart of Montessori education; as such, we welcome parents to observe in our pre-primary, lower primary, upper primary, and lower secondary classrooms, and we recommend parents to observe in their child’s classroom at least once per year. Please note that siblings/children are not allowed to attend classroom observations.

We encourage parents to discuss observations with their child ahead of booking so, together, they can determine the best time for the parent to observe.

Giving Your Time

The administration of our school is managed by our board and some tasks or projects are handled by sub-committees, so we rely heavily on individuals donating their time to our school.

We know our school community is made up of wonderful families and individuals who have diverse skillsets and expertise in a wide range of industries. So, whether you are passionate about education, governance, human resources, bushland care, finance, marketing, risk management – or even if you just want to help your school – we’d love to hear from you!

If you would like to get involved on one of our sub-committees, get in touch with our board:

Fundraising at our school is minimal, and the students decide how to spend the funds.

Our Community Events Volunteer Group organise community events throughout the year. The aim of these events is to bring our students, families, staff, and the wider Montessori community together to build relationships and connections. As such, fundraising is never the priority; however, we do raise some funds from our events, bake sales or BBQs.

In line with Montessori values and principles of having a child-centered environment, the funds are released to students of all ages in the form of small grants. This way, the students are at the centre of the decision-making process.
