Parent/Carer Involvement

Our school community is strong due to the involvement of parents and carers.

We are committed to promoting partnerships with parents, students and families. Parents, carers and community members are invited to become registered volunteers to support the work with:

  • Management of the school through the School Board
  • Assistance in library
  • Classroom helpers may be involved with supervising small groups for language and maths activities, assisting with the reading programme, helping with craft and elective groups, or by offering to use their special skills with the children
  • Helping out on class excursions
  • After school sports teams need the help of coaches and managers and excursions always need extra adult supervisors.

Registered Volunteers Process

Child Protection is an important matter for all involved working with children and therefore all people who work as a volunteer at All Saints must be registered through the school and complete a Police Check through the Catholic Police Check Unit.  Please contact the school for further information on this process.

As part of the process of being a volunteer it is also a requirement that you read and sign the Volunteer Details Form and complete a Responding to Abuse & Neglect session online.  Please refer to the Volunteer's Handbook when completing the online session. Refer to the Induction Pack for Volunteers 2018 below for further information.

A copy of your RAN certificate, Volunteer Details form and current Catholic Police Clearance must be lodged with the school, before you may commence as a volunteer at All Saints. Please contact the front office if you require further assistance with this process. We will be happy to help.

Parents and Friends Association

The Parents and Friends Association has an important role in the school. It is one of the ways we build true partnership with parents/carers in the school.

Once an enrolment has been offered and accepted, all parents and carers are considered members of the Parents and Friends of All Saints. A planning committee meets regularly during the term to support the school activities and organise events. Everyone is welcomed at these planning meetings however it is understood that this is not always convenient. Parents and carers will be invited to support the work of the P & F in at least one way during the school year.

The Association has a number of roles in the school, including community building, parent education, hospitality and supporting school events.

The committee meets approximately once a month. The Assistant Principal attends meetings of the committee. Each year the association liaises with Leadership to decide on specific projects in the school. The Association is responsible for the funds raised by the P & F school levy that each family is required to pay. Requests for funding of projects by the Association must be made in writing to the committee, through the Staff Representative. All requests must be discussed with the Principal first.
