Parent Involvement

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 the shared mission of Catholic education.  Parents are valued as partners in education and are encouraged to participate in the life of the school and to contribute to building community through:

  • Parents and Friends Association
  • Parents Representative Council
  • Parent/teacher/student conferences
  • Canteen
  • Uniform shop
  • Library support
  • Working bees
  • School maintenance
  • Excursions
  • Sport carnivals
  • Publicity
  • Parent Education workshops


Parents & Friends Association (P&F)

The Parent and Friends Association (P&F) and the Diocesan Parents Representative Council (PRC) offer many valuable opportunities for parents to become involved in our school and to work with the class teachers, school executive and the 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 Catholic education endeavours 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 at least once per term on a set evening as determined by the executive.  All interested persons are most welcome. The committee is elected by the general body at the Annual General Meeting which takes place in Term Four each year.

The P&F is involved in working bees, social functions, fundraising for school improvements and educational resources. The P&F communicates to the families of the parish through the school newsletter and meetings.


Parents Representative Council (PRC)

The Parents Representative Council (PRC) is the diocesan parent organisation which represents the parents and guardians of children attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta.

The council consists of parent representatives from primary and secondary schools and works in partnership with the Bishop, the Catholic Education Office, priests and school staff to support the education of students in Catholic schools.


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.

The Catholic Education Office runs various programs to inform parents about ways they can assist their children to get the most out of their schooling. These courses vary in length and are offered at different times of the year in both the daytime and evening. Details about these programs are available by phoning the parent educator at the Catholic Education Office on 9840 5721 or by visiting the Parramatta Diocese Catholic Education website: www.parra.catholic.edu.au

All parents who assist in any capacity are required by legislation to attend Child Protection training and complete a Prohibited Employment Form.
