Parents of St Joseph’s are engaged and show great interest and commitment to the life of the school and in the education of their children. We encourage our parents/guardians to actively support the Principal and staff in strategic planning for the school, building community, fundraising, as well as assisting in classrooms and on excursions
Family-school partnerships are collaborative relationships, supporting students, parents and teachers. Effective partnerships are based on mutual trust and respect, and the shared responsibility for the education of the students who are enrolled at both of our campuses.
Research demonstrates that effective schools have high levels of parental and community involvement. This involvement is strongly related to improved student learning, attendance and behaviour. Family involvement can have a major impact on student learning.
The Pastoral Leader, Parents and Friends Association, Parents, families, students, local elders in Weipa and wider community members are paramount to developing and strengthening positive partnerships between home and school environments.
