St Raphael's is known for its welcoming spirit and the sense of belonging that is created by the entire community. There are many opportunities for involvement in the life of the school and the parish, and the contributions from ex-students, parents, grandparents and other community members is always welcomed.

From the beginning of 2013 the school welcomed our Family Educator. Sydney Catholic Schools has given high priority to this Faith and Family Project. Families are encouraged to engage in the faith life of the school and parish. There is an emphasis on deepening the culture of partnership between families and school.
