A partnership with parents is at the heart of effective learning and life at Nambour Christian College. The partnership is developed through regular communication, special parent-teacher opportunities and a variety of opportunities for practical engagement with staff and students.
Parents are involved in supporting learning through small group and individual reading programs as well as parents assisting in various activities undertaken by our Friends of Groups.
In our Friends of Groups parents work alongside staff and students in a variety of co-curricular programs to maximise the opportunities available for our students in these particular areas of the school.
