Parental Involvement

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:

  • Masses
  • Excursions
  • Classroom helpers in a variety of curriculum areas
  • Education Week and Open Days
  • Working bees
  • Sporting events
  • Social events
  • Fundraising events
  • Fete
  • Hospitality
  • Library

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.

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.

 

Fete Committee

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).

 

 

 

Volunteer Training

All parents who wish to assist with activities where they work with our children, are required to complete the online Child Protection Volunteer Training provided by the Parramatta diocese. The training is completed through an online training module and once complete, notification is forwarded to the school.

You must also complete A Working With Children Check. A working with children check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and review of workplace misconduct and is valid for five years.

Parents wishing to assist with any school event need to undertake the Child Protection Training every two years.
