Parental involvement

St Andrews Primary welcomes the involvement of parents in the life of our community. Children love seeing their family interested and involved in their school, and we welcome any time you have and any help you can offer.

The following are some of the areas where parent volunteers are needed:

  • welcome morning tea
  • Mothers & Fathers Day stalls
  • athletics and swimming carnivals
  • school raffles
  • class helpers
  • excursions

Please note that all volunteer workers in schools are required to undergo child protection training. Visit the Parramatta Catholic Education Office website 'Building Child Safe Communities' for more information.
