As part ofPARENTS IN EDUCATION” week we invite parents to visit the information videos and translated information sheets, developed through a Parent in Education grant in 2014, on our website under International Students.

The videos point out the many different ways parents can get involved in the programs at Colonel Light Gardens Primary and how your involvement is valued by students and the school. The videos make great viewing for all parents and there are also Japanese and Korean language versions.

The parent information sheets cover assessment, camps and excursions as well as parental involvement. These are available in English, Korean, Japanese, Hindi and Indonesian.

We invite all parents to visit our website at  and view these resources.
