Parent Involvement

Embracing Community

At St Bernadette’s Primary, we believe that every student should be aware of their responsibilities as global citizens, and as such we strive to grow the strong partnership between home, school and parish.

Parents are a vital part of the school community and are involved in many aspects of school life. Our four active parent groups consist of an education, social, fundraising, and community group. They support and work closely with our school and the community, and assist in building community spirit.

We also have a variety of open and ongoing invitations for parents and the community to attend, organise and be involved with. These include: liturgies, morning teas, regular coffee and chats, open classrooms, school events, helping in learning spaces, volunteering in the school healthy canteen and uniform shop, attending carnivals and excursions as volunteers, attending workshops in parenting and curriculum areas, and through formal and informal interviews. All volunteers at the school must complete child protection online training, which remains valid for 2 years. For more information, visit the Parramatta Catholic Education Office website 'Building Child Safe Communities'.

The school communicates openly and regularly with parents through the weekly newsletter, digital applications and news feeds, via the school website.
