Parent Involvement

There are many opportunities for parents to take an active role in the life of the school. These include helping at and/or providing morning tea at various events, working bees, assisting with reading, helping with supervision on excursions, or officiating at sport carnivals.

How can I get involved in my child’s school?

Parents are acknowledged as their children’s first and most important teachers. You are welcomed into the community in a shared mission in Catholic Education. Parents are valued as partners in education and are encouraged to participate.

Parent Groups

The Parents & Friends Association (P & F) offers many valuable opportunities for parents to become involved in our school and to work with the class teachers, school executive and broader community.

The P & F is an organisation to promote the cause of education by bringing parents, friends, students and teachers into an active partnership. Its objective is to support the school in its mission in Catholic education and, where possible, provide financial support for the school. It is open to all persons who wish to promote the objectives of the Association.

The P & F meets once a term.  All interested persons are most welcome. The committee is elected by the general body at the Annual General Meeting which takes place during the Term One P & F meeting.

The P & F organises social functions to enhance the spirit of the school. Various activities are undertaken throughout the year to raise funds for school improvements and educational resources that benefit the students of our school. The P & F communicates to the families of the Parish through the School Newsletter, meetings and circulars.

Parent Education Programs

Information sessions for parents on topics such as curriculum and methods of teaching and learning, are held throughout the year. These sessions also provide information about the school’s policies and procedures, and the opportunities for parents to participate in discussions and workshops. All parents who assist in any capacity are required by legislation to complete the online Child Protection Module every two years.

The PRC (Parents Representative Council) Diocese of Parramatta runs various programs to inform parents about ways in which they can assist their children to get the most out of their schooling. These courses vary in length and are offered at different times throughout the year, in both the daytime and the evening. Further details about the PRC and these programs are available at www.prc.catholic.edu.au
