Anti-Racism Contact Officer

Seaforth Public School now has a nominated Anti-Racism Contact Officer (ARCO)

The ARCO's role has four major aspects.

1. Mediator role. On receiving a complaint the ARCO, in certain circumstances, may attempt to negotiate an informal resolution.

2. Procedural role.  If an informal resolution is not appropriate or satisfactory then the complainant has the option of lodging a formal complaint. Although a written complaint is not a requirement, the ARCO may assist the complainant in writing the complaint should they want to.

3. Educational role. The ARCO promotes anti-racism education in the school. This is done through professional development of teachers and using activities from the website.

4. Monitoring role. The ARCO assists the principal to:

  • Maintain records of complaints and allegations concerning racism
  • Decide what data regarding complaints about racism should be collected
  • Identify significant statistical trends in relation to complaints about racism
  • Implement actions arising from complaints of racism.


If you have any concerns regarding racism please email with the subject line ARCO or phone (02) 99481694 during school hours (8.30am – 3.30pm).
