Parental help is of great importance in any school community. At LJBC, participation in the Parent Participation Program (PPP), or payment of a levy in lieu, is a condition of enrolment. Each family is required to contribute a minimum of 10 hours per year, for the period in which their child attends the College from Kindergarten through to Year 11. This is regardless of the number of children attending the College: 1 child = 10 hours, 3 children = 10 hours. There is no maximum; every hour worked is of benefit to the College community. A description of the tasks and an information sheet are circulated to parents, enabling them to contribute in a chosen area of interest or an area of competence.
