Parents are a vital part of life at Wattle Park. From assisting in the classrooms, being involved as a member of School Council, the Education Committee, Buildings and Grounds, the Finance Committee, PFA, attending working bees or helping their children at home there is a very strong link. We value parent involvement and welcome it from new members to our community.
There are many opportunities which are advertised regularly in the school newsletter.
Parents are most welcome to come and share assembly with us. It is organised and run each week by our Year 6 leaders on Monday afternoons from 3.00-3.30pm.
