Parent Involvement - how you can help

​​​​​​​​​​Screenshot 2021-12-11 154908.jpgBecause of the recognition of parents’ role in education and the high correlation between home and school values, appropriate involvement of parents​​ and teachers in the policies and the management of the school will be sought and highly valued. Numerous opportunities throughout the year will be offered, both on a formal and informal level for parents and teachers to collaborate together.

We are always welcoming volunteers in our library, cybrary, tuckshop and unifor​m shop. Parents are also asked to become involved by attending the monthly P&F meetings, assisting with reading in the classroom and at our regular sporting events.

Due to a legislative requirement, it is now mandatory that all volunteers undergo Student Protection T​​raining. Brisbane Catholic Education has developed a training package to help facilitate this process. Please see the BCE Policies tab for Volunteer training links.

​As a volunteer, you are required to read t​he handbook and sign the appropriate pages. Once completed, please return the Volunteer Registration Form to the School Office.
​All non-parent volunteers must also undergo employment screening under the Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian Act 2005 and hold a current Positive Notice Blue Card for volunteers: 

Parent and Non-Par​​ent Volunteer Sign In/Sign Out

Parents and non-parent volunteers are required to sign in on arrival and sign out on departure at the office when taking part in activities a​t the school during school hours. This is a requirement to meet our workplace health and safety standards.​​​
