Class Representatives Program
Beaumaris North Primary School encourages the active involvement of parents and guardians in the functioning of the school through a Class Representative Program.
The Class Representative role involves:
- Supporting the class teacher when and if required.
- Providing administrative support through co-ordination, facilitation and communication to the class parent group.
- Organising social functions e.g. morning teas and dinners for the parents, class play dates for the children.
- Where requested by teachers, organising parent helpers for class activities and programs like swimming, reading, sports events etc.
- Encouraging and supporting the members of the class group to get involved in school community activities and events.
- Welcoming new families to the class and arranging appropriate introductions with other parents of the class.
Class Representative Co-ordinators manage the Class Representative program which includes:
- Co-ordinating and supporting Class Representatives throughout the year.
- Chairing Class Representative meetings.
Class Representative meetings are held once per term in the staffroom. The meetings provide the opportunity to discuss any issues relating to the role of the Class Representative and to share information about upcoming school events and class/year level activities.
How to become a Class Representative
A call for expressions of interest in a Class Representative role is sent out at the end of the year (in preparation for the year ahead) and again at the beginning of the year. Parents may also be invited by their class teacher – please do not approach teachers directly regarding this role. Class Reps (usually two) are selected by the Class Teacher in the first week or two of Term 1.
