Parental Involvement

We believe that parents are key members of the community and as such, they are encouraged to participate in the school community and the life of our school.

In addition to our Parents and Friends Association, parents are also welcome to get involved in formal and informal parent groups, working bees and social activities.

Parents are invited to attend all liturgical celebrations in the school. We ask them to participate in particular aspects, such as reading or offertory processions, and we encourage them to pray with the whole school at assemblies.

Parents are encouraged to become involved in classroom activities, library, kiss & drop, canteen, and excursions.

The Parents and Friends Association meet regularly each term and pray together before beginning their meeting. At these meetings parents discuss the best ways to help the school community, such as through fundraising, working bees etc.

Parents and Friends Association

The purpose of the Parents & Friends Association at St Madeleine's is to support and foster the aims and objectives of Catholic Education at St Madeleine's’s while working to develop effective two-way communication between home and school, giving public expression when the occasion arises, on matters affecting Catholic Education.

The Parents & Friends Association also provide financial assistance for school resources and run fundraising to enhance and build our supply of school equipment, they assist in the development of the school community through the organisation of social functions and provide a forum where matters of common interest may be discussed.

We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.
