At St. Monica's we invite parents and guardians to participate in the life of the school. Some of the opportunities for involvement are:
The School Board is made up of a group of parents, the Principal, Deputy Principal, Parish Priest and members of the Staff Leadership Team. Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of every month.
Parents & Friends Committee
The St. Monica's Parents & Friends Committee works for the welfare of the school community. Parents are welcome and encouraged to be members. Meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month. All parents are urged to contribute in any way they can, to help support this committee.
The aims of this Committee are:
- To encourage the voluntary assistance of parents, to support the school, the teachers and the curriculum program.
- To promote the building of a stronger communtiy through social occasions.
- To raise funds towards the general recurrent costs of the school as well as specific projects.
Your child will receive Scholastic Book Club catalogues throughout the year. These provide you with an opportunity to purchase quality children's literature at discounted prices. There is no obligation to purchase, but if you wish to buy from the catalogues, please return the money with the order form by the due date in a sealed envelope. If paying by cheque please make cheques payable to Scholastic Bookclub. Clearly write your child's name and the amount of money enclosed on the front of the envelope.
Our canteen has two part time coordinators. They are also reliant on volunteers to assist them.
Students place their orders on a Thursday for Friday which is canteen day. Pricelists and menus are distributed regulary to inform parents of what is available. Duty Rosters are published in the School Newsletter.
