Friends of Seatoun School (FoSS)

The Friends of Seatoun School work closely alongside the staff and BOT to fundraise and organise social events that maintain and build upon the school’s close links with its community.

Members are also involved in the strategic planning process. FoSS relies on parent involvement and the old adage that “many hands make light work.”

Participation

Parents have many skills and expertise that can greatly enhance the quality of our teach- ing programmes. Teachers will regularly request parent support to supervise and work with groups of children in the classroom, or on trips, camps, sports events, etc. Any assistance you are able to give is greatly appreciated and often critical to the success of such activities.

Information workshops are held for parents who assist in classrooms. Being aware of what teachers are trying to do and the strategies they employ to support children makes for highly effective parent help.

If you are able to assist with any aspect of our teaching programmes, please let your child’s teacher or the Principal know.
