A child’s success in the first years of primary school depends on a background of rich learning in their preschool years. When moving through the first few school grades parental interest in their life at school and parent participation in their school activities is beneficial for children’s success.
You are your child’s first educator. A positive, balanced parental involvement correlates directly to improved learning outcomes for students. When parents are involved, students:
Parents are an integral part of the education of the children in our care. The most important aspect of our relationship with parents is that communication is as open as possible so that we are aware of the needs of the parents and their children.
When parents work in the classroom, assist with excursions or coach sporting teams there are aspects of that involvement which are critical.
Parents must have a Catholic Police Check before volunteering at St Joseph's Memorial School.
All observations and information gained when involved with the children is strictly confidential.
The teacher must provide guidance and structure for the activity.
All parents must sign an Work, Health & Safety Volunteer form before volunteering in the school.
