PARENTS AND FRIENDS 2019
The P&F wishes to extend a warm welcome back to the whole school community and for those new parents and students, we hope you’ll enjoy your time at St Mary’s Catholic College as you experience the wonderful community we have and intend to build on this year.
This year the P&F intends to bring a different focus to our school community, specifically concentrating on what we can achieve to help our children through their school journey and to becoming our future generation of leaders. We strongly believe that we, as parents, play a critical role together with our teachers to ensure this occurs.
One of the first exciting, achievements we have already kicked off with is the revamp of our Travel Assistance & Grant Sponsorship Policy. The changes made will assist many teams and individuals to turn their dreams into reality at St Mary’s Catholic College.
Another initiative we are introducing this year is a social, interactive and informative session every second month specifically tailored to helping parents to better understand their child’s learning environment. Through the support of our principal and teachers, we will continue to provide interesting and relevant topics that we believe will be of benefit to parents and, therefore, our children.
With a renewed focus on bringing our school community together, we also intend to host an evening of fun and laughter that will hopefully become an event that all families and teachers will look forward to in the years to come.
Our AGM was held in Week 4 and a new executive committee elected with the exception of a Secretary and second Diocesan Council representative, so if you would like to be involved please check the P&F webpage for information.
Are you aware that as a parent or guardian of a student at St Mary’s Catholic College, you are already part of our parent and friends’ association? We always welcome new parents to our monthly catch-ups – even if you can’t come to all of them we would still love to see you!
