Parents & Friends
Schools are wonderful social places and many friendships are made between families. The PFA is a group of parents who plan, organise and lead a variety of social and fundraising activities. Meetings are held throughout the year on a Monday evening. There is a core group of dedicated parents that regularly meet as the committee and other parents come to one or two meetings to help out with key events – all are welcome.
We have working bees throughout the school year where we beautify and maintain our school grounds and buildings together as a community. All families who attend 2 two school working bees for the year are rebated their $100 maintenance levy. All working bees are advertised through our school newsletter.
Our parents have a lot to offer in the area of school improvement. The Education Board is an opportunity for parents to work with our school leaders to create a better schooling experience for children and families. Typically the Education Board is made up of parents, the school Principal, Deputy Principal and Parish Priest. Some of the areas of focus for our Education Board are School Strategic Planning, Child Safety, School Policies and Procedures, Learning Areas, Transition to and from Primary School, Extracurricular Activities, Home-School Communication and Partnerships. Each year our School Captains facilitate an Education Board Meeting on a topic of interest to the Student Body.
Our learning spaces are always open to helpers, we are very grateful to the many parents, grandparents and volunteers that are part of our daily school life. Classroom helpers engage in a variety of activities, including reading groups, maths games, cooking classes, gardening and extra-curricular activities. There are also many other opportunities to join in, for example, by covering library books, attending excursions, assisting with our Art Show and School Production or helping out in the canteen. We know that children who have parents involved in the life of their school have better learning outcomes. Together we believe we can go further!
