Parents Partnership

We regard our College families and friends as partners in the process of educating the children at Thomas Hassall Anglican College. 

We provide many opportunities for you to be involved in College life, including Parent Information Evenings, special assemblies, concerts, musicals, events, carnivals, the South West Festival and more.

The College is very appreciative of the many ways in which parents, grandparents and friends assist by offering time and expertise or donations of goods and services.

Class Parents Network

 
The Class Parent Network is a new initiative for 2015 and consists of self-nominated year group representatives from Prep to Year 12.  The charter is very simple.  Class Parents will provide social networking opportunities throughout the year by organising gatherings such as morning teas, lunches, holiday activities and casual get-togethers etc.  Most events are held off-site and are a great way for families to get to know each other outside school hours.

The Class Parents also provide support to staff by getting involved in various activities such as helping in the canteen, reading and literacy groups, assistance at sport carnivals and creative arts events, exam supervision and writing, focus group discussions etc.  Class Parents also assist and support the Parents & Friends Association key fundraising activities.

Class Parents meet termly at the College with the Director of Marketing and Community Relations to discuss ideas and upcoming activities. The Principal also attends these meetings to provide information and discuss new programs at the College.

Parents & Friends Association - P & F
Every parent of Thomas Hassall Anglican College belongs to the Parents & Friends Association which is led by an Executive Committee who are elected annually in February.  The P & F Committee meets monthly and aims to provide a variety of social functions, parent education forums and fundraising opportunities for all families, Prep to Year 12. 

We welcome and encourage all parents to attend and get involved in our activities which are fun and rewarding and add to the sense of community at our College.

All funds raised contribute directly towards student resources and enhancing the learning environment.

At the beginning of each year, the College conducts a short induction program for all volunteers.  The program indofrms helpers about our policies and practices in respect to Work, Health and Safety, Child Protection, Responding to Emergencies, Professional Standards, Privacy and Confidentiality.
