The Belmont School Home and School Team is a great way to become involved with the school community, meet other parents and make a positive contribution to the school.
The aims of the Home and School Team are:
- To promote the active involvement of Belmont School parents and caregivers within the team in order to represent the interests and views of parents and caregivers of children attending the school.
- To support and foster co-operation and partnership between Belmont School’s principal, Teaching staff, Board of Trustees and families.
- To encourage fellowship within families through social, educational and networking activities.
- To help with the provision of non-government funded equipment and facilities through fundraising events.
All parents and caregivers with children at Belmont School are welcome to join the Home and School Team. The Home and School Team is made up of a committee including a Chairperson, a Secretary, a Treasurer, a representative from the Board of Trustees and a representative from the staff at school.
Our informal and friendly meetings are usually held monthly. Please check the school calendar for the next meeting. Each month we discuss upcoming fundraising events, ongoing projects, and other topics as deemed necessary.
The minutes of all general meetings and the AGM are also available at the school office for all parents to read. Information on Home and School Team activities is also provided in the school newsletter.
The Home and School Team has an important fundraising role in the school. We have held sausage sizzles, run raffles, sold chocolates, entertainment books and calendars, to name a few.
Over the years the Home and School Team’s fundraising efforts have been responsible for obtaining a range of equipment and resources that would not have been available to the children within the school’s normal budget. The wonderful junior school playground is an example of the efforts of HAST fundraising.
The Home and School Team welcome fundraising and other ideas from parents and caregivers.
We consider ourselves friendly and approachable so please feel free to introduce yourself and have a chat if you have any questions or concerns. Alternatively, you can leave a message at the school office.
We look forward to meeting you.
