As the governing body of the school, the Diamond Creek Primary School Council plays a key role in our school’s accountability and improvement processes. The School Council works with the Principal to prioritise our students’ best interests, to enhance the educational opportunities for all our students and to ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations.
Becoming a School Council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. Being on School Council is a great way to get involved and have a real say in what Diamond Creek Primary School is doing for each student. It is a great opportunity to help present and future students of our school.
The members of School Council support the Principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for the students at Diamond Creek Primary School.
Parents and Friends Team
Parents and Friends TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More)
The Parents and Friends Team (PFT) strives to develop a real sense of community between parents, teachers and students, encouraging interaction and cooperation between home and school. This group encourages active participation by parents in the life of Diamond Creek Primary School.
The PFT has a ‘friend-raising’ as well as fund-raising role, as such providing for the organisation of social functions for parents and the broader community, as well as organising and running fundraising events. The funds raised by this group provide additional resources for use of students and teachers.
At Diamond Creek Primary School, this group of parents get together once a month and come up with ideas to plan social events and raise money for the school community.
Some of the social events and fundraisers the PFT has run include:
- Shopping Tour
- Parents and Teachers Trivia Night
- Special school celebrations, such as the 140th anniversary celebrations.
- Special Lunch Days
- Cake Raffle for the School Assembly
- Mitre 10 BBQ
- Easter Raffle
- Mother’s & Father’s Day Stalls Christmas Raffle
The PFT is a great way to meet some other school families in a fun environment where lots of laughs are shared. New faces and ideas are always welcome.
