Parent Involvement


The attitude of the Church towards parent involvement in education is quite clear: "Parents are the first and the foremost educators of their children." Opportunities for involvement include:

  • Assisting in our school library by shelving, cataloguing and covering books
  • Assisting in classes supporting children
  • Volunteering to assist on the tuckshop roster or in the second hand uniform shop
  • Attending P & F meetings
  • Coaching sporting teams and assisting with cultural activities and performances
  • Serving as a member of the School Board
  • Attending working bees
  • Supporting various social functions and fund raising activities held throughout the year
  • Volunteering your special gifts, talents or expertise

Parents are invited to participate in the life at the school. As part of the school/home partnership, parents show support by:

  • displaying commitment to the school's Mission Statement and to the ethos of the school
  • making time to regularly communicate important information concerning your child
  • being active in support of the P&F Association's fundraising activities and school functions
  • being informed of what is happening in our school, especially by reading newsletters etc
  • participating in school / class gatherings and information sessions
  • assisting with school and classroom activities
  • welcoming new community members
  • encouraging your children to participate fully in the life of the school
  • serving on the School Board
  • communicating well and respectfully with school staff, students and parents
