Be connected. Be informed. Be heard.

Our schools know the importance of parents'/carers' contribution to their children's education and the impact it has on children's learning.

We encourage partnerships with families - recognising that commitments vary according to families' circumstances.

Catholic education has a long tradition of family involvement, often with connections spanning generations. You are encouraged to contact your school to find out how all members of your family can be part of your child's learning community.  

The Federation of Catholic School Parent Communities supports families and schools in this important work.

"We really feel part of the school. We and the children have made new friends, we are welcomed by staff and other parents. It's opened a whole new world for us..."

Brenda and Jim, Yr 1 Parents
