2024 P&C Welcome to families movie night

Parents and families are our strongest and most cherished partners. The education of our students is based on the age old saying:

School Board

As an Independent Public School, staff work with highly dedicated parents and community to provide Governance over what we do as a school and assurances to the community of our successes. They are instrumental at a ground level in developing the School Business Plan and participate in the Public School Review Process.

The Board meets to discuss:


Achievement of Business Plan Targets,



Risk Management

P&C 2023

Hard working and dedicated to the students and families of HVPS.


The P&C are a dedicated group of parents and community members who work with the school staff, essentially to maintain ties between families and the school in more social and creative ways such as communication through the P&C Facebook page and fundraising events for either students, families or parent evenings.

The P&C also provide families with services such as uniform shop and canteen.

Before and After

School Care

Having Before and After School Care on the school site has been a saving grace for many of our families. When the Board selected Skooleez as our preferred supplier, they selected Skooleez for their capacity to work with the school and families and their shared belief in developing community.

They are a separate entity to the school so although we can provide you with information you must contact them to engage in their service.

Helena Valley

Lifestyle Village

The residents of the Helena Valley Lifestyle Village have a long-standing partnership with the staff and students at Helena Valley Primary School with residents visiting the school to listen to our students read daily and volunteer in the School Canteen.
