School Community - Parent Helpers


Parent Helpers

At Aberfeldie Primary School we are committed to working in partnership with families to promote positive links between home and school to achieve the best outcomes for your child. A key aspect of this partnership is to promote the value of life-long learning.

Research has shown that those students with interested and involved parents do better at school. In short, parents make a difference. One way promote the value of learning to your child is to become a Parent Helper.


Parent Helpers: 

  • Enable the teacher to provide a wider range of activities.
  • Enable the teacher to ensure that small groups have adult supervision.
  • Work 1:1 with students providing quality learning experiences.
  • Share their expertise to enrich programs e.g. craft activities.
  • Assist in the preparation of work tasks and the setting up of equipment.
  • The children really benefit from having their parents in the class with them.
  • Build a learning community

By becoming a Parent Helper you also have the opportunity to observe first-hand the approaches and strategies used in class to promote and support students in their learning and utilise these strategies at home.
