PARENT INVOLVEMENT
Parent involvement is highly valued at Coral Park Primary School .  We welcome parent involvement in school activities and in classrooms. A group of parents meet in the staffroom each Wednesday morning for coffee and chat whilst helping with laminating and making school resources. They also organise the school fundraising activities and provide feedback on ideas and programs.

Parents are invited to attend many special events throughout the year including our weekly Friday afternoon assemblies when they are also invited to  join with the student leaders for afternoon tea and ‘school chat’  prior to the start time of 3.00pm.  Parents are very active on School Council.  We encourage parents and grandparents to assist in the classroom, on excursions, during sports days and to attend all special school events. Each Thursday afternoon our senior students broadcast the Coral News which is a 10 minute show that includes school news, updates and reminders. Parents are invited into classrooms from 3.20pm to view the broadcast.
