Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

We warmly encourage parents of our school community to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of Penrith Christian School. This may include volunteering a few hours each term in our School Canteen (Shalom Café) or covering books in our iCentre. You may prefer being in the classroom leading a Reading Group or assisting with a Sports Carnival, Excursion or Camp. We appreciate school is a large part of your child’s life and we want to make Penrith Christian School part of your life too. Relationships are the cornerstone of our community and we truly value our partnership with parents as being an integral part of every child’s school life.

Parent Involvement Program (PIP)

Each family is asked to contribute to the school eight hours per annum (being two hours per term) by assisting in such areas as the iCentre, School Canteen, Working Bees, Sporting Events, Excursions, Reading Programs and other activities.

 

Families who participate in the Parent Involvement Program (PIP) will receive a $15.00 per hour credit to their School Fee Account once a term, to a maximum of $120.00 credit per family in any one school year.

 

To receive a PIP credit, all hours contributed must be registered at School Reception. Excess hours do not carry forward to another year. Preparatory and Scholarship enrolments are not eligible to receive any credit for PIP.
