Our Community

At St Monica’s Parish School, we greatly value and appreciate the support of parents and families in our community through their involvement in many ways.

We embrace their involvement - it strengthens links between the school and home and develops a sense of community within the school.

There are many ways that parents, grandparents and carers can be involved in the school community:

  • Listening to reading in class
  • Being involved in specific craft days
  • Helping on excursions
  • Assisting at various school events.

 

The Parents and Friends Committee

Our Parents and Friends Committee is a wonderful vehicle for our parents to become more involved in the school and also make new friends.

This committee plans and provides opportunities for our children to have enriched school social experiences and to deepen the connections amongst our community.

Committee activities include planning and fundraising for:

  • Mother’s and Father’s Day Stalls
  • School Disco
  • Sports Day
  • End of Year Concert activities.
  • ... among many others!

We welcome anyone who wishes to actively support the school. Open meetings are held twice a term and the atmosphere is social and light-hearted. Discussion is around the various ways the committee can further support the building of a strong school community.

School Board

The School Board is another way that parents can become involved within the St Monica’s School community.

The role of the School Board is primarily to ensure that appropriate school policies are developed and ongoing rich learning is experienced by our students.

Additionally, the School Board oversees finances and the provision of resources, and endeavours to maintain the well- being of students and the wider community. Parent representatives are elected at the Annual General Meeting during Term 1 of each year and meetings are held twice per term. School Board members are nominated by the school community to be a part of the School Board.

Our Community

Saint Monica acknowledges that we are gathered on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationships with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today.
