Community centre

Paralowie R-12 School is very fortunate to have a community centre as part of our school.

Our community centre is a friendly, supportive and welcoming environment where adults and families from our school community can join in a range of activities, information sessions and programs. Our aim is to promote healthy wellbeing, active learning, and positive engagement and enable our families to assist in the learning outcomes of their children.

Parents and Friends Committee

The Paralowie R-12 Parents and Friends Committee is based in the Community Centre. The role of the group is to provide opportunities for parents within the school community to get to know more about what happens here at school and how parents can be actively involved. We hold monthly meetings and new members are always welcome.

The group holds activities to raise funds for the school, such as sausage sizzles, craft stalls, school discos and raffles.

For more information, contact Liz Goodwin (Chairperson, Parents and Friends Group) via the school on (08) 8182 7222.
