"Foster positive and productive relationships with families and the community"


Teachers build professional relationships with families, caregivers and other community members to support student learning, enhance student wellbeing and strengthen and enrich teaching and learning programs.


Building a relationship with parents and people of the parish community is of paramount importance for teachers as it provides an insight to the child's background and development of learning. It can also lead to in-class help where parent skills are used in conjunction to students' learning.

Partnerships engage students in their work in a meaningful way, connecting their learning from the classroom to the world beyond through visits by experts, excursions and peer group forums and debates. I encourage and invite parents to take an active role in their child's learning and be transparent and accountable.
