Celebrating 20 Years: 1997 to 2017

PIP Opportunities

PIP requests are advertised in our weekly Newsletter/Bulletin 

Thank you in advance for your participation in our PIP program. Parent involvement sends a clear message that our Emmaus Community is worth time, effort and sacrifice.

Note: 2 Hours of PIP per year must now be done at the Twilight Fete to ensure sufficient helpers.  Details to follow.

Remember any parents who come to assist in our classrooms and have contact with our students MUST have a valid Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) card. Helpers are to work in a class with a child of their own – unless by special arrangement.

Keep your PIP log up to date (this folder is in the office). In term 4, should your PIP task fall after the closing date please log these hours in advance in the registerNO MORE PIP hours can be added after this date. (NOTE: Assistance provided by children or students CANNOT be claimed as PIP hours.)
