Orange Christian School has had parent partnership at its heart since its inception.
Our Class Parents Program has long been an effective means by which to help welcome new parents to our school, help them to feel connected in their new community and to assist in keeping parents aware of upcoming events and to encourage involvement at OCS.
Our Class Parents have contact information of all parents in their year group, attend Class Parents’ morning teas with the Community Development Team in the first week of each term and hold a start of the year social event for their year group.
Through Class Parents, there is an established network of parents for new parents to connect with, and a means by which school information can be quickly disseminated as an adjunct to our regular means of communication. Those who volunteer each year for this role, make a great contribution to the daily operation of OCS as they work with our staff to foster community through parent partnership.
