Parental Involvement

St Nicholas of Myra Primary is a community of staff, students, parents and parishioners who work together to build and develop our great school.

Parents are acknowledged as their children's first and most important teachers. They are valued as partners in education and are encouraged to participate in the life of the school and to contribute to building community through:

  • participating in the Parent group
  • fundraising
  • assisting at social events
  • joining and/or supporting the Parents Representative Council
  • assisting in specific learning programs, e.g. reading helpers
  • assisting at excursions
  • assisting at sport carnivals
  • assisting in the school canteen 
  • attending parent education workshops
  • attending student led conferences
  • attending whole school assemblies 
  • attending whole school events, e.g. Book parade, Easter hat Parade 
  • attending Masses and Liturgies 

  • Parent Group

    The Parent Group and the Diocesan Parents Representative Council (PRC) offer many valuable opportunities for parents to become involved in our school and to work with the class teachers, school executive and the broader community.

    Working with Children

    Building Child Safe Communities – Undertakings for contractors and volunteers - New procedures for all schools, COSHCs and CELCs.

    CEDP recognises that volunteers and contractors provide enhanced opportunities for students.

    As such, all volunteers and contractors are required to complete an online undertaking form confirming their agreement to behave in a manner that is appropriate for a Catholic school, COSHC or CELC setting. This form also seeks to determine the suitability of volunteers and contractors by requiring confirmation that they do not have a criminal history involving children. These forms are available on the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta website.

    Please contact the school for more information.

    Volunteer Training

    We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.

    As we are committed 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.
