Parent Involvement

‘No school can work well for children if parents and teachers do not act in partnership on behalf of the children’s best interests,’ - Cohen

Parents are encouraged to be as involved in the school as much as they want to be.

Options for involvement include but are not limited to the following:

  • Listening to reading
  • Helping with Art lessons and sporting activities
  • Attending meetings and/or supporting fundraising and social activities
  • Attending special assemblies, masses and liturgies
  • Nominating for the School Advisory Committee
  • Helping students prepare for events or activities.
  • Helping with the school’s vegie patch.
  • Sharing your talent with individual students who need some extra support.

All volunteer parent helpers must have a current ‘Working With Children Check’ card and have St Agatha’s Primary School as the nominated provider. All volunteers will complete an induction session prior to volunteering each year.

The St Agatha’s Community Group (STAC), formerly our Parents and Friends Association, has been set up to help all parents and carers feel welcome in our school.

There are four branches to STAC:

  • The Community Branch aims to connect with our students and families and to facilitate our families connecting with each other.
  • The Teacher Support Branch, aims to provide support to teachers in any way they need it.
  • The Fundraising Branch, aims to raise funds to provide up-to-date resources and facilities for the students.
  • The Communication Branch, aims to monitor and executive communication between and within the other three branches.

Parent Lounge

We have a dedicated room next to the Canteen. This is used for parent meetings and resource working bees. However, it’s most important function is as a gathering space that all parents can access. Tea and coffee is available. There are some toys to keep the toddlers occupied. All parents are encouraged to take advantage of this designated space.
