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.

Interpreting and translations
We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.
If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.
For more information, listen in your language.
Visit the department’s translated documents section for important information that’s relevant for your child’s education in many languages.
Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)
Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.
The Bass High School parents and citizens' association (P&C) meet at school every month. Meetings take place early evening (starting at 6pm) or during the school day (starting at 9:30am). The schedule below sets out meeting dates and times.
Parents are most welcome at meetings. Meetings are friendly and informal and include information about school programs and events as presentations from key school program coordinators. Parents also have the opportunity to have a say in school decision-making and planning.
We look forward to seeing you at our meetings.
We will keep you updated with dates and times via website, Facebook and the school app (School Stream)
