For Parents

At St Joseph's School we recognise our parents/carers as the first educators of their children. We encourage a productive partnership with the parents/carers to ensure the best possible outcomes for the children.

There is a high level of parental interest and involvement in the life of our school. Many parents assist in classrooms across a range of Key Learning Areas as well as with excursions and special events.

The Parents and Friends Association is committed and supportive. These volunteers work tirelessly to organise the fund-raising and social activities for our school including discos, ice-block and pizza days, trivia nights, Mother's and Father's Day stalls and much more.

The school is firmly embedded within and supported by the Parish of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Rockdale City. As of 2012, a Family Educator has been appointed to assist in continuing to develop strong partnerships between parents, school and parish.
