Children require a safe place to live. At times, for a variety of reasons, living with family is not the safest option for all children. Department of Communities, Mirrabooka District, is seeking motivated, caring and nurturing adults who may be willing to attend a local information session to hear about becoming a foster carer. Foster carers often tell us that making the decision to help vulnerable children and young people and providing them with a loving home has been one of the best decisions they have ever made. There are a number of foster care options available. Some are long term, full-time arrangements while other foster carers provide support for short term or short break placements. Foster carers come from all walks of life. You may be single, partnered or married, with or without your own children. As a foster carer, you would be supported by a dedicated Placement Officer.
Interested applicants would need to attend a fostering information session. We have sessions that will occur at the Mirrabooka District office and the Herb Graham Rec Centre in Mirrabooka on the following dates:
Information Sessions – 2022
- Saturday 28th May 2pm – 4pm – Herb Graham Recreation Centre
- Tuesday 14th June – 6pm – 8pm – Mirrabooka District Office

School Road Safety Guide
The City of Swan community regularly identifies school parking safety concerns as a priority. In order to address these community safety concerns, the City has developed a school parking process. As it is most likely that parking offences are being committed by parents and visitors associated with your school’s community, it is imperative that the City has your involvement in educating parents and visitors on the importance of complying with the City’s local laws related to parking. To assist with understanding these local laws, the City has developed a School Road Safety Guide which is available on the City’s website via the following link www.swan.wa.gov.au/Your-City/Parking-travel/Parking/Safe-and-legal-parking.
Over the next few weeks the City’s Parking Enforcement and Community Safety Advocate teams will commence patrols to capture images of vehicles parked in contravention to the local laws. Whilst the City aims to address these concerns without imposing penalties, Caution notices will only be issued for a limited period with infringement notices with applicable penalties being imposed for the remainder of the school year.
Should you require any further information on the City’s school parking approach or would like to discuss any parking concerns around your school, please contact the Community Safety team via telephone number 9267 9022.
