Volunteer & Building Community

Strong relationships and connections with your school, together with information sharing between families and schools can ensure a positive learning journey throughout your child's school years.

When families and schools work together, children are more likely to build good relationships and do better at school. Research by Catholic School Parents QLD shows that children are more likely:

  • Enjoy learning and be motivated to do well;
  • Have better relationships with other children, improved behaviour and greater confidence;
  • Graduate and go on to college, TAFE or university ​

“I think of it as a triangle – the student, the school and the parents/family. The child has the daily interaction with the school and we have daily interaction with the child, but it's about keeping the lines of communication open between the school and the parents." (Parent)
