How to be involved at QHPS

Parents and Carers play a vital role in our school. We are very lucky to have parents/carers from all walks of life and with so many skills and passions to share with us here at QHPS.


All volunteers require a Working with Children Check which needs to be shown to the office prior to helping in classrooms. This is line with QHPS's Volunteers in School Policy.


We encourage all parents/carers and family members to be involved at Quarry Hill Primary and this can take on many forms:-

  • Classroom Helpers

Please see your child's classroom techer if you wish to assist in the classroom. The classroom teacher will work with you to negotiate a suitable time in their timetable.

Due to our learning programming and timetabling, there are limited opportunities for parent helpers in the classroom.

Other opportunities for parent involvement include, but are not limited to:

  • House Athletics
  • Cross Country 
  • Open Sessions
  • Book Week Parade 
  • Assembly items 
  • Parents and Friends Assocation (PFA) 
  •  Sporting Events

Parent/carer participation ia an integral part of our sporting events such as Cross Country, Swimming Sports just to name a couple. Ross Turner, our Physical Education Specialist will put requests in the newsletter asking for helpers to all of our sporting events. It is a fantastic opportunity to come along and not only support your child but also the many other students in the school.

  • Parents & Friends Association (PFA)

The PFA provides a pathway for parents and families to become involved in the school, develop new friendships and support the school community that supports your child.  PFA membership is open to all families, friends and guardians. The PFA usually meet every month and these times are published in the newsletter.
