The P&C Associations on both campuses are the voice of parents and carers and promote our College's interests by bringing parents, carers, friends, and teachers into close cooperation with each other. Our P&C Associations are the basis of an important partnership between parents/carers and their campuses. The active involvement of parents is essential for a rewarding College environment.

The College P&C's are conducting an anonymous online survey to help identify the communication between our campuses and our parent/carer community to assess how well we engage with families and how we can improve. We welcome all responses. 

Parents and carers will receive a summary of the survey findings. The findings will also be presented at the campus P&C meetings and provided to senior executives at each campus. Please feel free to share with other parents and carers. Should you wish more information on our P&C Associations, find further details below.

Communications Charter

Parents and carers play an important role in the College community. The HVCS Community Charter informs parents and carers on how to engage with NSW public schools. The NSW Department of Education has introduced a School Community Charter (PDF 1.4 MB)for all members of NSW public school communities. It has been developed in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. The School Community Charter aligns with the department's Strategic Plan 2018 - 2022

Parents and carers can expect:

  • to be welcomed into our campuses to work in partnership to promote student learning
  • communication from teaching staff will be timely, polite, informative and solutions focussed
  • professional relationships with College staff will be based on transparency, honesty and mutual respect
  • to be treated fairly. Tolerance and understanding are promoted as we respect diversity.
