Parents as Partners
Learn how you can help support your child’s learning.
Christ the King acknowledges parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.
We encourage parents to be actively involved in school life and work with us to ensure the best educational outcomes for your child.
Parents are also actively encouraged to attend school events such as sports carnivals, exhibitions and performance evenings.
How can I contribute?
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:
- School masses
- Classroom helpers
- Working bees
- Education Week and Open Days
- Sporting events
- Social events
- School fete
Class parent representatives are organised for each class and are a valuable contact for new families, building community and support networks.
Why not join one of our school committees?
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.
This committee organises special days for our students during school hours e.g. Easter raffle, cake days, food days, Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day gift stalls, raffles and more.
Hospitality team/cuppa crew
These parent volunteers coordinate morning teas for parents at school-based celebrations (e.g. Father’s Day Mass).
This group of parents organises social functions for parents, friends and students such as discos, trivia nights, bingo, special luncheons and more. Events all geared towards building community spirit.
Parents Representative Council (PRC)
Have a say in your child's learning. Parent representatives from Christ the King attend meetings on a Diocesan level with parent representatives from other schools to discuss educational matters from a parent perspective.
Golden jubilee committee
A group of school community members involved in preparations for our school's 50th anniversary celebrations in 2023.
Volunteer and contractor training
We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.
As part of our commitment to keeping students safe, all volunteers in schools are required to complete the building child safe communities undertaking form and child protection training module before volunteering. These checks reduce potential risk and forms part of our strategy to build child safe communities.
Christ the King has a supportive and welcoming community
We look forward to you joining us!
