Parent Partnerships

At Hawthorn West Primary School we recognise that parents and guardians have the first and most significant influence on their child’s learning. Parents continued involvement in their child’s formal education is important so that they can achieve the best possible learning results. We endeavour to provide interesting and informative information sessions to our community.

If you are interested in participating in the classroom, assisting with sporting events, on camps or excursions, you need to complete this course on Compass. Even if you have previously completed a HWPS Parent Helper Course, you need to complete the course for 2015 on Compass.

Topics covered include:
