Dear I.P.S. families and carers

, we are pleased to say that classroom helpers will be resuming in Term 3 for grades Foundation, One and Two. In accordance with Covid-safety measures, training for this program will occur online this year. If you are interested in helping in the classroom and have not completed the training in the past you will be required to read through the attached PowerPoint and sign an agreement. An optional half hour web-ex meeting will follow to clarify any points and ask questions. Please note if you have previously completed the training program no further steps are required to assist in the classroom. We look forward to seeing you back at I.P.S!

Parents can enjoy the opportunity to share in the educational development of students with the support and direction of teachers, by participating in the Classroom Helper program.

The Classroom Helpers' course is a component of the Victorian Early Years Literacy Program and is designed to support the work of parents, helpers and aides who assist in classrooms.  The program runs for three consecutive weeks in Term 1 and is presented by teachers from the school. 

Topics include:

  • Being a Helper
  • Helping with Speaking and Listening
  • Helping with Reading
  • Helping with Writing
