Parental Engagement

St Patrick’s Primary School understands the importance of parental engagement in student learning. Parental and family engagement can impact a student’s learning by up to 80%, so it is our role as a school to ensure parents are provided with opportunities to engage in their child’s learning through organised Learning Walks, Parent Teacher interviews, curriculum nights, the See Saw digital platform and Student Expos.

School Advisory Council

The St Patrick’s School Advisory Council is involved in the strategic future planning of the St Patrick’s. The council represents the school community and provides a valued voice in policy development and review, strategic planning, the school review process and adhering to the VRQA standards.

Parents interested in joining the school advisory council should contact the principal for further information.

Parents and Friends

The Parents and Friends Group at St Patrick’s is responsible for providing social gatherings which connect families, fundraising through the Annual Mayfair and other events. Over the years the Parents and Friends Group have not only raised significant funds for the school, but most importantly provided a place for parents to meet and form positive relationships which enrich our inclusive school culture.
