Parents are recognised as partners with professional teachers in the education of their children, with the parents being the first educators. The Parents & Friends Association exists for the benefit of the school and as part of its structure, not as something separate from it. It is not limited in its scope to fundraising, but is involved in the total life of the school.
The Parents & Friends Association is an integral part of St Catherine’s School and provides a formal structure for parents and others interested in the welfare of the students to plan and organise activities for the benefit of the school. The Parents & Friends Association is an important part of the school community representing all the parents of the school and sharing responsibility for the school with the principal and teachers.
The Parents & Friends Association of St Catherine’s School provides opportunity for parents to meet, usually with principal and staff, in order to ensure that everything necessary is being done for the school and its community and in particular, the students. These general meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month and all are welcome to attend.
The Parents & Friends Association of St Catherine’s School works very much as a team and every social, fundraising or other school activity is fully supported by that team. The Parents & Friends Association endeavours to plan with the Principal and others to provide optimum resources and a well-resourced learning environment for the children of St Catherine’s School.
Our Parents and Friends Association meets on the second Tuesday of every month (term time) at 7:00pm in the Nano Nagle Centre.
