Our community is our greatest ally in delivering a practical, holistic education for the young people of Serpentine and Jarrahdale. 

Strong ties to the community give our students new opportunities to thrive and network.

We have several ties to our community and welcome parents, carers and community members to join our P&C and Board so they too can contribute to the success of our students.


The College Parent and Community committee plays an essential role in the college, each year working on projects for the betterment of our students. We welcome everyone to join our P&C including staff, families and community members.
