Family School Partnerships
A strong partnership between families and a school focuses on improving student's learning opportunities and educational process, this in turn supports improvements in an individual’s academic performance. At St John’s we value the vital partnership between home and school and welcome families whenever possible. Some ways we work in partnership with our families is through parent helpers, attendance at School Masses and Assemblies, special events, playgroup, parent/teacher meetings, being a member of our School Advisory Council and other celebrations throughout the year. We encourage families to come into the school each day, visit classrooms and see all the wonderful things happening at St Johns.
School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Council (SAC) is an advisory team made up of the School Principal, the Assistant Principal, a staff representative, and elected parents of the school.
The team meets each term and discusses issues which relate to the running and the planning of the school. While decisions relating to the running of the school are the concern of the Principal, the advice and recommendations are taken on board with high regard.
The SAC enhances communication and accountability, and plays a key role in keeping staff and families 'on the same page'.
