We believe that parents play a key role in the education of their child as well as the life and community spirit of our school.
Parents at Christ the King are active participants in our school and contribute to the children's learning across the school. Parents are involved in many facets of school life, including:
- Classroom helpers in a variety of curriculum areas
- Education Week and Open Days
- Working bees
- Sporting events
- Social events
- Fundraising events
Parents are invited to participate in the school in many ways, including classroom assistance with the children, helping out with food days, helping in the library or supporting with Mothers Day/Fathers Day and Christmas gift stalls. Class parent representatives are organised for each class and are a valuable contact for new families, building community and support networks.
There are many opportunities to be involved and to feel part of our school community. We encourage you to participate in the life of the school in some way, if at all possible.
Join one of our school committees
The Fundraising Committee organise special days for our children during school hours e.g. Easter raffle, cake days, food days, Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day gift stalls, raffles etc. Please note that our most up-to-date policy for fundraising can be found on our Policies and Procedures page.
Our Social Committee organise social functions for parents, friends and children such as discos, trivia night, bingo, special luncheons, Mothers’ Day, Melbourne Cup, all geared towards building community spirit
Parents Representative Council (PRC)
Have a say in your child's learning. Parents representatives from Christ the King attend a few meetings on a Diocesan level with parent representatives from other schools to discuss parent educational matters.
These parent volunteers are instrumental in organising our Parish and School fete which falls every second year with the help of our parish and School community and friends.
Hospitality Team/Cuppa Crew
These parent volunteers coordinate morning teas for parents for after school-based celebrations (e.g. Father’s Day Mass).
