School & Community
Building a strong community through teamwork
Family involvement at Footscray West is highly valued and warmly encouraged. If you are interested, ask your child’s teacher how you can help.
There are many things you can do in the classroom; from reading with students or helping with excursions and special activities, to preparing resources or covering books.
There are also many ways to be involved across the whole school, including joining the School Council or one of its sub-committees, socialising and fundraising with Parents & Friends, or gardening and supporting other environmental and social activities with the Connector Bugs.
Family members are also invited to assist at special events like school discos, working bees, and by accompanying camps and excursions. Check the Calendar and keep an eye on the weekly Newsletter for details.
Footscray West Primary values interactions between the school and the broader community. The school has links with local education, sporting, community and cultural groups. Students are encouraged to represent the school at a range of annual and biennial academic, sport, and arts events and activities; as well as by regularly participating in national and state initiatives.
The Footscray West Primary School Small Business Directory provides parents at our school with significant school dates and contacts of parents who have businesses that you may be interested in using and supporting.
