Every family contributes six hours to the College each term. There are many different ways of fulfilling your College support hours (SSH). Ask your Parent Liaison for a College support hours sheet and assistance in following through with your commitment.

You will need to start recording your hours using the available form. Get it signed by the person for whom you undertook the task and submit it to the front office either by email or by hand. Please see Community Forms.

Outside your child’s classroom, you will see details of your Parent Liaison, listing and what their role involves. PL’s support the class by providing non-educational information, passing on information from the teacher and organising scheduled social events. The PL’s help new parents settle into the College or new Cycle and aim to keep all parents up to date with College activities.
