Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

It truly is an exciting time to be part of the Coomealla High School community. There have been many recent upgrades to the school including the update of the many classroom interiors with new paint and furniture. Recently, a major upgrade of the external landscaping occurred, with many more plans underway. The teachers and leadership team continue to work tirelessly to give every opportunity to students to participate and achieve in myriad activities, whether it be sporting, academic or vocational. Many of these projects and activities are supported and endorsed by the school’s P & C committee.

The P & C’s major endeavour however, is the canteen. Anna Hansen does a wonderful job providing our students with delicious and healthy food and drink options, as well as catering for many of the school events and special activities. She also gives students the opportunity to work in the canteen to gain skills and an experience that they can add to their resume or apply to their out of school employment.

I am very pleased to say that parent and community involvement at Coomealla High School is very much valued and encouraged by the supportive staff at Coomealla. The P & C committee meet monthly to discuss the educational opportunities available to students and to give feedback about current offerings to the school’s representatives. It is a welcoming and inclusive team and we would love to invite any parents or community members to join us or to reach out to us so that we can share your thoughts, ideas or suggestions to help make your child’s time at Coomealla High School an even more rewarding experience for them.
