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.
At Fairfield High School we want our parents to be the voice of our school.
Parent and community Information Forums are run each term to inform parents and carers of what's happening at Fairfield High School.
Parent Information Sessions are also held throughout the school year, offering support and guidance to parents on how to help and guide your child through their high school years
Fairfield High School offers an array of programs for our parents for example
- Parent Taster Lessons
- Coffee and Chat Time
- Parent Excursions
