For Parents

Parental involvement is vitally important and necessary to the life of the school. We see it as building a partnership between parents, children and teachers, while supporting the faith and values we share as common beliefs.

Christ the King School and the community work together to ensure the children receive the best possible education in a strong family atmosphere.

Parental involvement includes participation in the Christ the King School and Parish Fete, Mother's and Father's Day stalls, Celebration Committee, Enrolment Committee, Finance Committee, Class Helpers and Special Projects.

Christ the King has a Family Educator whose role is to nurture strong parish, parent, school relationships and to explore new models of supporting the well-being of families in the areas of spiritual, social and educational formation. 

The Family Educator's work includes; 

  • Connecting, reconnecting and enhancing the faith life of parents               
  • Evangelisation through a range of programs which invite staff, students and parents to encounter Jesus are offered by the school and the Sydney Catholic Schools Office such as weekly Stop Pray and Reflect (SPaR) sessions for parents.
  • Creating opportunities for Outreach such as St Vincent de Paul Winter and Christmas appeal, Project Runway, HSC Support Packs.
  • Facilitating Parent Gift making sessions where parents are invited to come along and make gifts for special events in the life of their children, such as Sacraments.
  • Organising well being initiatives such as Peaceful Kids, Seasons for Growth, Retreat days
  • Playgroup –  This program runs weekly to enable children in our school and wider community to participate in story time, craft and morning tea.
