Parent Involvement

Parents have many opportunities to contribute to the life of Ringwood Secondary College, including:

  • involvement in parent bodies, such as Music Association, the PCTA and Extra PArts
  • participation in College Council and its sub-committees
  • volunteer assistance in literacy and numeracy
  • attending working bees (usually one each term)
  • attending Parent-Teacher-Student Interviews
  • offering assistance to the library
  • assisting students in the school’s integration, EAL or special reading programs
  • sports coaching or acting as an official at sports events
  • accompanying groups on excursions or tours as a teachers’ aide
  • making a financial contribution

The College welcomes the contribution that parents make to the development of our College.

Music Association

The Music Association is an active and interested group of parents whose children are involved in the College’s Music Program. Its main function is to assist the Music Faculty by providing funds and support for their program and events. 

Ways in which we assist are by:

  • Raising funds, when enable the purchase of high cost instruments
  • Support of the various musical groups’ performances by providing front of house duties, refreshment selling and occasional transport
  • Parents (or even Grandparents) of music students (instrumental or voice) are invited to become a member of the Music Association

Our meetings are usually held monthly, on Monday evenings, at the College and are attended by Assistant Principal, Maria Allison and Director of Music, Janine Pero. If you are unable to attend our meetings any assistance you can give at Music Association events and activities would still be greatly appreciated.

This may be the enjoyable way you have been looking for to be involved in your child’s journey through secondary college.

Extra Performing Arts

The Extra P.Arts parent group was formed in 2005 to support the Performing Arts Program. The concept was to establish a data base of parents and supporters of the program to be called upon on a needs basis to assist.

The main tasks are based around the annual school production and in particular the costumes ie making, repairing and storing.

Members also assist with Front of House tasks such as ticketing and interval refreshments. Other support is given to backstage requirements and to the future development of the Performing Arts Centre facilities.

Please contact the College if you are interested in being involved.
