Siena holds the belief that parents contribute significantly to improving student outcomes with their active involvement in the school. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved at a class, community and parent body level. Research shows that your time enriches and accelerates your child's learning.
We have a combined Primary/College parent body across the two schools. The normal executive positions exist in this body. There are a number of sub groups or committees which assist in specific areas to support identified needs across both schools. Outlined below are the roles of each of these groups.
Class teachers regularly seek assistance with Reading, Spelling, special days and class liturgies.
The library welcomes parents to assist with re-shelving and covering books.
Assisting in the tuckshop with the preparation of lunches, morning tea and cleaning up is always welcome.
Throughout the year there are the following social activities that rely on parent assistance – Welcome BBQ, Trivia Night, Race Day.
There is a regular number of sporting activities each year that rely on parent assistance – swimming carnivals, cross country, athletics, rugby, netball, touch.
Both parents and staff form these groups and develop goals to assist the school in providing a quality Catholic education. Meetings are held on a needs basis during the year. Parent contributions assist in building healthy partnerships and a strong sense of school community here at Siena.
