PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEWS
Parent teacher interviews are a critical time when students, teachers and parents meet to discuss both the learning success and the learning needs of the child. At Holy Name Catholic Primary School we provide 2 formal parent/teacher interview sessions towards the end of Term 1 and Term 3. Appointments can be made via our online booking system. All parents are encouraged to meet often with their class teacher outside this formal occasion, particularly after the release of the Semester One and Semester Two Student Reports.
There are many opportunities for parents and friends to become involved in the life of the school. These range from helping with class reading/educational programs, coaching or assisting with sporting teams, cultural or educational pursuits, working in the canteen, supporting the Parent Assembly and participating in the fund raising and social agendas of the P&F. All volunteers must have their Working With Children Check. Further information can be found in the Volunteer Induction Handbook
HOLY NAME PARENTS AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION
“There must be the closest co-operation between parents and the teachers to whom they entrust their children to be educated. In fulfilling their tasks teachers are to collaborate with the parents and willingly listen to them; associations are to be set up and held within high esteem. “(The Code of Canon Law: Canon 796)
Our P&F meet in Weeks 3 and 7 on a Tuesday to discuss issues relating to the social, academic and spiritual development of their children. Everyone is encouraged and welcome to attend. Engaging with academic pursuits, a healthy canteen and fundraising ideas are often topics on the agenda. This very vibrant group adds much to the quality of Holy Name School.
