Parental Involvement

At Holy Cross Primary School, we perceive education as a partnership between home and school with parents and teachers sharing a common vision which forms a powerful combination.

We adopt an open door policy where families are encouraged to visit and work in classrooms. There are a number of opportunities for families to learn about our school, including the transition and orientation to Kindergarten, Open Day, open classrooms, and parent information sessions throughout the year.

Focus groups are held each year in first semester, one in Term 1 and the other in Term 2. Depending on the needs of the students and the school, these focus groups change each year. Examples of focus groups include Fundraising, which involves assisting in the organisation of fundraising activities such as Move-a-thon and Mothers and Fathers Day stalls. A second focus group is usually on Wellbeing, which looks at ways our community can be proactive in enhancing positive student wellbeing.

The families of Holy Cross Primary School are generous in supporting our community through their time, efforts and supporting our fundraising activities. We look forward to meeting you as you find your own way of getting involved in your child's education at Holy Cross.

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.
