CPR Classroom Parent Represntative

​ Robina State School provides parents with the opportunity to actively support student learning and the school through the Classroom Parent Representative Program or CPR, the heartbeat of the school.  The main aim of the CPR programme is to enhance school/parent communication and provide support for teachers within the school in a positive and friendly manner. 

Each class in the school has a parent who takes on the role as the CPR. If you take on the position of CPR you undertake a range of activities in the role.

Things to do in your role as a CPR: 

Establish a contact list of class parents eg. phone number and email addresses so that your teacher can call upon you at any time for speedy communication and assistance in sourcing practical hands on help when required. 
Send out newsletters to the class after the monthly CPR meeting
Welcome new parents and students to the class and provide an essential communication link between teachers, parents, the school, the P&C Association. 
Organise class outings to give parents an opportunity to meet and for friendships to form and develop outside of the school environment. 
Help and support your class teacher when required. For example helping with artwork, collecting resources to be used within the classroom, and helping or sourcing help on school outings 
As a CPR you need to be helpful to the class teacher but at the same time unobtrusive 
CPR’s are to be directed by the teacher at all times and may even find that some teachers are self reliant and may ask for very little help or none at all. 
You can also help with fundraising. At times the P&C Association need assistance with certain functions that they have arranged throughout the year. It would be great if the whole school community could support these events as the money raised enhances our children’s education. You are asked to pass on this information to your class parents in the hope that we can encourage community participation which benefits the whole school.
