Useful Tips and Links for Parents
Developing a partnership
We appreciate your help: We appreciate the generous support provided by you, our parents and caregivers. At the beginning of each year and occasionally through our newsletter, we appeal for helpers to assist with: library maintenance; mechanical work; sports coaching; art and craft; transport for class and sports trips; working bees; receipting activity money; carpentry; chaperoning; fundraising committees; making teaching equipment and classroom helping e.g, remedial reading, swimming, sewing. We would appreciate your help with any of these activities. If you are interested in helping, please call in or phone our office.
We value your input in our Charter: The Board of Trustees has the responsibility of reviewing and updating our Charter and Policies. From time to time we may ask you to contribute to this development through formulating or commenting on a policy. We invite you to participate fully in this process, as we value your feedback on our school.
Attitudes are Important: Lytton Street School has a proud record of developing and caring for its students. You have an important part to play in this partnership. Please work with us to achieve the best possible outcomes for all children.
Together, we will live to learn and learn to live.
