Parental Involvement

At St Mary's we highly value a strong partnership with parents.  We encourage parents to become actively involved in school life.  In order for parents to participate in school activities an up-to-date Working With Children Check.

Some examples of ways parents can be involved in school life include:

  • Helping in the classroom;
  • Attending Parent Teacher interviews;
  • Attending information meetings at the beginning of the school year;
  • Posting comments and/or feedback on their child’s learning through digital avenues;
  • Parents and Friends Committee;
  • Assemblies;
  • School Advisory Committee;
  • Athletics days;
  • Sporting Events;
  • Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Lent and Easter Celebrations;
  • Advent and Christmas Celebrations;
  • Weekly Parish Mass held at school;
  • Feast Day Celebrations;
  • Activity days; 
  • Special food days; and
  • Icy-pole Fridays.
