There are four domains in which the Family Educators work to do this. They are:

  1. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing the faith life of parents
  2. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life the school
  3. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life of the Parish
  4. Enhancing family well-being.

The Family Educator is based in the primary school, is responsible to the Principal and works closely with the Parish Priest. Effective communication is maintained with the school leadership team, school and parish staff and parents.

The position of Family Educator will be filled at the end of 2017.
