Parent Engagement

Parent Engagement

St Gabriel’s Primary School is a welcoming and active community. We aim to build strong relationships between school, families, our parish, our local community and the wider community.

We see the child’s growth and development as a partnership where parents and educators share a key role in character making, modelling philosophy and building attitudes, values and self-esteem.

School Advisory Board
St Gabriel’s School Board acts as an advisory body to the parish priest and principal on matters concerning the development of the school and the education and wellbeing of the students. The Board meets once every month.

Parents and Friends Association
St Gabriel’s Parents and Friends Association is an energetic and visible part of the school community and offers many opportunities for parents to gather and become involved in the life of the school. The committee plays a significant role in building the community spirit of the school through its events and functions and providing opportunities for parents and staff to gather together in a spirit of fun and friendship.

Parent Helpers
At St Gabriel’s we warmly welcome parents into the classrooms to assist with a variety of activities including reading groups, cooking, maths tasks, art and craft activities and excursions. We also encourage parents share their expertise, skills and experiences as guest speakers.

Please note all parent helpers are required to have a valid working with children check to be presented to office staff and kept on file. To apply for a working with children click here.
