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.

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.

School readiness checklist

Parents have requested a set of parameters to support them to know if their child is school ready. The checklist attached is from a service in Sydney and is not an endorsement of the provider, but provides a sound, research proven developmental checklist.

Important safety reminder - After school

Dear Parents and Carers,

To ensure student safety, please be aware that the school playground areas and equipment are not supervised after school, and are closed at this time.

We want all Rosehill Public School students to make their way home safely, and kindly appreciate your support in ensuring your children are not using the play equipment or handball courts after school (even if you are with them). These areas will be used by after school care students only, with teacher supervision.

Additionally, please be aware that no siblings or friends are permitted to attend PSSA training sessions. PSSA coaches are focused on their team, and PSSA students are focused on their training – this leaves no supervision for visitors.

As always, students who are not collected at 2:55pm will be sent to the school office to be supervised, while parents/carers are phoned.

Thank you for your cooperation.
