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.

Galilee Catholic School and the community work together to ensure the children receive the best possible education in a strong family atmosphere. A number of Parent Committees are formed to ensure this collaboration, as well as Social Events throughout the year to foster community.

Principal's Advisory Council

The Principal's Advisory Council (PAC) is composed of a number of parent representatives as well as the Parish Priest, the Principal and the Assistant Principal. The PAC meets twice a term to assist the school in achieving its goals through the encouragement of social interaction, participation in educational programs, and fundraising.

Fundraising

The parent community makes a significant financial contribution each year to the School through fund raising. The Parent Fund Raising Committee works with the Principal to discuss and evaluate various ideas and activities for fund raising and social events. The money raised is used specifically to update and expand the school's resources to enhance the children's learning.

There is a strong focus on social interaction and being welcomed into the Community through fund raising and social events.

Class Parents

Each class is represented by two or three class parents. Class parents are responsible for organising specific fundraisers allocated to their grade, social outings and communication among class families and the school.

Class parents are a valuable asset to our Galilee community as they encourage a friendly and inclusive environment.
