For Parents


For Parents

Parent involvement is strongly encouraged with an emphasis on the partnership between parents and teachers in the faith development and education of the children. Parents are involved in many aspects of school life.

Parents and carers are encouraged to be involved in the Community Hub and the services it will offer. The Hub is not operating during COVID-19.

Assemblies

Each morning the students assemble for prayer before beginning their day. We pray our School Prayer, with special intentions, and parents and carers are encouraged to participate.

On Monday morning we also sing the National Anthem.

Whole-School Prayer

Parents and the school community are invited to our weekly whole school prayer assembly which takes place every Friday afternoon at 2.20pm in the Church (during the building program). Grades prepare and present the prayer and student leaders assist at the assembly, which consists of the following:

  • message from the Principal
  • student of the Week Awards
  • birthdays of the Week.                 
    These assemblies have been modified during COVID-19.

School Uniform

The school hat, bag and winter jacket can be bought at the school office. Summer, Winter and Sport uniforms can be purchased at Lowes at Bankstown Centro.

We also have some second-hand uniforms available for purchase at St Brendan's, which include school and sport uniforms and are available for purchase during school hours.

Application for Leave from Attendance at School

Parents/Caregivers must apply for a Certificate of Leave from Attending School for their child when seeking leave as it is a  legal requirement to attend school eg a planned holiday during term time.

Parents write a letter requesting leave and then they will receive an application form. A copy of the travel documents must be attached. If the request is approved, parents will then receive a Certificate of Exemption for the child.​​​​​​
