Parent and Teacher Meetings
Meetings between the class teacher/guardian and parents are considered an essential part of the school’s educational philosophy. They assist with the building of bonds between child, teacher and parent. These meetings encourage the development of strong class-centred communities. Parents assist with fundraising for class outings, with craft work and costume creation, with resourcing and with transport. One or two parent representatives are chosen out of each class community to act as Class Carer, facilitating communication and providing liaison and support for larger school events.
DRSS relies on parents’ help to maintain the school gardens and grounds to such standard that we are proud of our school. Four working bees are arranged per year to achieve this result. If working bees were not held, the work would have to be done by a professional contractor which would result in higher fees payable by families. If at least one member of a family does not attend a minimum of one working bee per half year, a levy of $50 per half year will be made to the family’s account to cover the cost of hiring garden staff. Families may choose to pay the $100 levy at the begining of the year if you do not want to attand working bees.
