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. Ph: 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. Ph: 1300 789 978.

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.

Parents who want to be part of the school community and citizens who recognise the importance of their local High School.  Together they assist with decision making and ensuring that the school is a  positive environment for the students and the teachers.  It is open to all and YOU are most welcome.  Annual membership is $1.

The P & C meet every fourth Wednesday of the month in the Library at Nambucca Heads High School.  The meeting begins at 5.00pm sharp and finishes no later 7pm.  The Annual General Meeting is held in March each year.  Open discussion at monthly meetings enables members to discuss any aspect of school life.  The attendance of the Principal and or the Deputy Principal keeps us informed about what is happening in the school.

The P & C value your contribution to the realisation of our goals and the growth of our school.             This year's P & C executive are only too happy to encourage you in this.
