St Paul the Apostle Primary values the partnership between parents and school.
Parents are always welcomed and involved in a variety of school activities. Many parents assist in the teaching and learning process by participating in classroom activities, such as literacy groups and reading programs.
Parents are also encouraged to participate in formal and informal parent groups such as Parents and Friends, working bees, participation in sporting events, sporting gala days, open days, Christmas concerts, assemblies and helping the school librarian.
Parents are invited to attend all liturgical celebrations in the school. We encourage parents of infants children to sit with their child during grade masses. We ask them to participate in particular aspects of these liturgies such as reading or offertory processions and we encourage them to pray with the whole school at morning assemblies.
Parents and Friends Meetings
The objectives of the Parents and Friends Association (P&C) include promoting the cause of true education by bringing parents, friends pupils, teaching staff and clergy of the Parish into fruitful co-operation. (From the constitution of St Paul the Apostle Parents and Friends Association).
Parents and Friends Association meets at various times throughout the year.
We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.
As we are committed to keeping students safe, all volunteers in schools are required to complete the building child safe communities undertaking form and child protection training module before volunteering. These checks reduce potential risk and forms part of our strategy to build child safe communities.
