Parents' Auxiliary


All parents and guardians of students attending GNS are automatically members of the Auxiliary and they are encouraged to get involved in the school community.

The mission of the Glenlyon Norfolk School Parents' Auxiliary is to create an inviting environment, which promotes friendship and volunteerism while raising funds for discretionary items, in consultation with administration and staff.

General meetings are held once a term. Dates and times are listed in the School Calendar and announced at the beginning of the year.
