Parent Involvement


Parents and families are encouraged to become involved in the Frankston High School community. There are a variety of opportunities from the formal structure of the School Council to a more informal working bee and BBQ.

Parents who are involved in school activities are giving a strong message to their children about how important their education is. Research has shown these parents have children who have far more successful learning outcomes compared to parents who don’t become involved in their school community.

The School Council is responsible for policy-making and overseeing school operations. School Council meets eight times a year and has six elected parent members and two community members. Committees include: Finance, Education, Grounds and Facilities, Sponsorship & Marketing, Chaplaincy and PFA.

The Parents and Friends Association (PFA) welcomes new members and visitors to assist in a range of areas in the school and to provide feedback on school issues and events. The Chaplaincy Committee assists in supporting the work of the non-denominational School Chaplain.

The school would like to acknowledge the funding for the services of our Chaplain, Linda Hughes, for 2 days per week, from the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. This funding is provided by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

There are many other opportunities to be involved with the school, including: attending working bees, assisting in the uniform shop, general classroom areas, the First Aid Centre, libraries or at one of our special events, such as The Teddy Bears Picnic or the annual fundraising Auction.  If you have other ideas for offering your volunteer services to the school, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
