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.

Counselling for families

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change. Contact us to make an appointment. For information in community languages, see school counselling service.

Outside of the education system, free telephone counselling services are available to support families who may be going through a difficult time.

  • Lifeline – 24-hour telephone counselling service. 13 11 14.
  • Mensline Australia – 24-hour telephone counselling service for men. 1300 789 978.
  • Parent line – 24-hour advice and information service. 1300 1300 52.

Interpreting and translations

We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.

If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.

For more information, listen in your language.

Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.


P&C meetings are held during Weeks 2 and 8 of each school term. The next meeting will be the AGM followed by our general meeting on Wednesday 17 March 2021 starting at 6pm in the school library. 

All parents and community members are warmly invited to attend any meeting. Children are welcome to attend with parents and carers.

If you’re unable to attend a face-to-face meeting, we have the ability to set up a Zoom meeting so you don’t miss out. Just send an email to oldbarpublicschool@pandcaffiliate.org.au before the next meeting.

If you would like to vote and have your say at meetings, you are welcome to join our wonderful committee. Membership is $2.00 and forms may be collected from the school front office.


Exciting news ahead! In case you missed it, we are helping to fund new play equipment around the school! Our fundraising goal is $40,000.

To kick start our fundraising efforts, we have been lucky enough to secure Raffle Events at Club Old Bar.

Our next event will be on Tuesday 30 March starting from 5:30pm. We invite you to come along to enjoy a night out, while also helping out our wonderful school.


Opening Times: Tuesdays 8:45am - 9:15 am and Thursdays 3pm - 3:30pm

The Uniform shop is CASH ONLY. Alternatively, you can purchase uniforms on Flexischools and have them delivered to your child’s classroom.
