Parent Council

ParentsAt Cairns Primary School we have a very active and supportive Parent Council.  The Parent Council is a voluntary group of parents who meet on the first Monday of every month to discuss fundraising, social events and other relevant school issues. 

The Parent Council are part of the Parent Forum, of which anyone with a child at Cairns Primary is a member. The Parent Council gives parents an opportunity to meet together to ask questions, gather information and work in a way which is most supportive to the school, staff and pupils. 
Throughout the year, the Parent Council run various events such as Halloween Discos and the Summer Fair. They are also proactive at our many events throughout the year, helping with catering and general fundraising. All monies raised by the Parent Council is given back to the school to support all pupils provide extra resources, opportunities for trips/outings, experiences for pupils.
