St John the Baptist looks forward to working in partnership with all parents. Research shows that students perform better at school when parents are actively involved in their children’s schooling. There are many ways in which parents can be involved in their children’s education.
- Attend School PRG meetings
- Become a member of the PRG committee
- Attend parent-teacher interviews and information evenings
- Volunteer for reading groups in class
- Help out at the Canteen or library
- Attend School Liturgies, Assemblies and School Concerts
- Offer assistance at School functions such as the swimming and athletic carnivals
- Attend social events, including Trivia night and Dinner Dance
Every volunteer must complete a Declaration each year, which can be found under “Forms” on this website.
During the year the school also offers a variety of facilitated groups and workshops for parents. This is a great opportunity to meet and socialise with other parents whilst learning more about your child’s education. Popular topics for these groups include:
- ‘Education Topics’ – Reading, Spelling, Maths and STEM
- ‘123 Magic’ – Assists with children’s behaviour using positive discipline
- ‘Ages and Stages’ – Understanding the developmental stages of children
- ‘Morning Madness’ Strategies for getting to school on time
- ‘Parent Factor’ Supporting parents in learning that takes place in the home
