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)
The Kent Road PS Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association is an active, enthusiastic group of parents who volunteer their time to support the students of Kent Road PS. Our P&C works hard to promote a strong relationship between parents, citizens, students and teachers through a range of programs, initiatives and events.
The P&C generally meets twice per term, on Monday evenings, from 7.30pm until approximately 9pm.
Visit the dedicated Kent Road Public School P&C page for meeting agendas, previous minutes and upcoming meeting dates.
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.
