Parents can be involved in a range of school activities such as assisting in
the classroom, helping with excursions and camps, or offering their expertise to
help organise extracurricular activities such as sports carnivals and
musicals. At Deebing Heights State School, we understand parents/carers are busy people, but we encourage them to attend school events, such as parades, sports days, etc.
As an Independent Public School, Deebing Heights State School has a School Council. School Councils play a more formal role in setting the future direction of the school. Parents/carers are represented on the School Council and are elected every two years. More information can be found at the School Council Handbook website.
Parents and Citizens' Association
Deebing Heights State School offers opportunities for parents to join our Parents and Citizens' (P&C) Association. Our P&C are involved in a variety of school activities from policy to financial planning as well as tuckshop, uniform shop, fundraising, school functions and out-of-school-hours care. For more information visit the P&Cs Qld website.
The Deebing Heights State School canteen/tuckshop relies upon volunteers to be successful. The Queensland Association of Tuckshops (QAST) is a non-profit, community-based organisation developed to assist tuckshop workers and school communities to provide great-tasting and healthy foods. The service to members includes regular magazines, special events specifically for tuckshop workers, support for the Smart Choices strategy, and advice on tuckshop management issues including volunteer workforce strategies, menu development, pricing, healthy food ideas and marketing. For more information visit the QAST website or phone (07) 3324 1511.
