In the past, we have witnessed the willingness of our parent body to come together as a P &
F committee. This year St. Mary’s will be changing the structure of the committee to have a
Parent Engagement Model focus in conjunction with Catholic School Parents Queensland.
This model was first raised by our previous Principal, Kevin Billion and now I have been
given the opportunity to move this vision forward with the assistance of a committee of
parents, teachers, and local community leaders.This exciting new model will be focused on creating sub-committees of staff and parents
involved in activities and programs that lead back to the growth and development of student
learning and wellbeing.Such sub-committee activity ideas included:
We will be holding an information session and Q & A on this new model later in the term.
We are hoping for this to coincide with a school disco so we can have as many parents
involved. If you wish to know more about this, feel free to contact me or visit the Catholic
School Parents Queensland website at https://www.pandf.org.au/
Clairvaux Mackillop College are holding a free Parent Engagement Day on 31st July and
details are also on the website.
