The role of Parent Group is twofold: it is both a social vehicle and a fundraising arm.
Funds raised by Parent Group in the past have contributed to our school environment, for example, Interactive Whiteboards in classrooms and a passive play area covered in synthetic turf.
The social aspect is equally important, it is through such events that we make our school community warm, vibrant and supportive for both children and parents.
Parent Group meet every Tuesday morning in our Parent Group room, next to the canteen. You are most welcome to attend.
School councils play a vital role in Victorian government schools and are established and operate under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic), the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2017 (Vic) and a constituting Order. A well-informed and effective school council strengthens community confidence in the school and helps to build and secure the school’s reputation. School councils establish the broad direction and vision of the school within the school’s community.
At Niddrie Primary School, the current Council consists of the following members:
- Jess Spring-Brown – President
- Sarah Armstrong – Vice President
- Vinesh Sivanandan – Treasurer
- Stefanie Ghiocas – Secretary
- Sarah Dalton – Executive Officer
- Rebekah Soames
- Al Da Silva
- Sarah Weissbacher
- Asanka Silva
- Kristie Harrison
- Aaron Hutchinson
- Kellie Busuttil
- Emily Wong

Our Cyber Safety practice is to ensure that we support and empower ALL Australian students to be safe and responsible users of digital technologies both at home and school, we must arm ALL teachers, parents and the wider community with digital literacy skills and resources.
The Cyber Safety Project teams with school communities to ensure all school leaders, teachers and parents are kept up-to-date with the latest trending digital topics. We must provide space and time to learn and understand the way students can connect and interact through digital platforms, devices, sites, apps and gaming networks.
The core outcomes of our program include
- Teachers know relevant digital citizenship elements of the digital technologies curriculum, ethical and social responsibilities
- Teachers are aware of and understand current digital literacies and trends impacting on young people in their care
- Teachers are able to design learning to achieve the cyber/digital technologies outcomes for students

Parent Payment Arrangements
Niddrie Primary School is looking forward to another great year of learning and we would like to advise you of details in relation to Niddrie Primary School’s voluntary financial contributions for 2023.
Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian Curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, parent contributions continue to provide an important and critical source of funding which enables us to supply resources necessary to maximise successful delivery of our learning programs. The ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students. We want to thank you for your continued support of NPS, whether that’s through paying the voluntary contributions, fundraising or volunteering your time. This has made a huge difference to our school and the programs we can offer.
