Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – 24-hour advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

A warm welcome is extended to new students and parents.

The Byron Bay High School P&C Association meets on the third Tuesday of each month (except during the school holidays) in the Library at 7 pm. This association is encouraged to participate in the decision-making processes relating to all aspects of the school.

The P&C Association has a dual purpose:

  • To work co-operatively with the school in providing a good educational program for the students.
  • To allow all parents and citizens to share their views and ideas concerning matters affecting the students and their school.

The P&C Association raises money to supplement the resources in the school and provides a link between parents and the school. Addresses on topics of special interest are often given by teaching staff members or special guests.

Successful education of students in the 21st Century demands a partnership between parents, students and teachers - the school invites all parents to participate.
