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.

North Nowra Public School has an active P&C, committed to making a difference in the lives of the children, families, and teachers of our school. We achieve this through fundraising, managing the school canteen, and operating a uniform store.

All parents and carers are encouraged to become involved in the NNPS P&C Association. Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. (on a school day - not public or school holidays) in the school library. Educational issues, school events and fundraising activities are discussed. Your attendance is encouraged and most welcome. Joining the P&C enables you to find out what is happening at your child's school and also to have some input.

If you are able to help out in any way, please complete the P&C Volunteer Opportunities form and return it to the office

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.
