Family-School Partnership

St Joseph’s Primary School is committed to building a strong Family-School Partnership. We aim to provide authentic opportunities for engagement in the life of the school. We encourage this through the work of the Family School Partnership Framework endorsed by the Lismore Catholic Schools Office and through the work of all members of our school community.

We encourage participation and engagement at whatever level is appropriate for each individual person and family.

Parent Volunteers

Volunteers play a significant role in the work of the school and we appreciate the contributions of all parents, friends and families who share in providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment for our young people. If you are able to share your own gifts, talents or interests with the school, please contact the School Office on 02 65625501.

Ways that you can be involved include:

  • Attending Information Meetings;
  • Attending assemblies;
  • Engaging with school communication such as the School newsletter;
  • Providing feedback through surveys conducted by the school;
  • Becoming a member of the Macleay Valley Parish.
