Catherine McAuley acknowledges parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators

We encourage parents to be actively involved in school life and work with us to ensure the best educational outcomes for your child. We welcome and value the participation of our parents and families in the life of our school community through:

  • direct communication available online, via school planner, phone contact or meetings
  • regular parent teacher student meetings
  • regular online newsletter
  • detailed interim and formal reports
  • an active Parents and Carers Group
  • involvement in carnivals, masses and celebrations.
Parents as Partners - Catherine McAuley Westmead

Parents and Carers Group

The Parents and Carers Group meets once a term and provides a forum for parents and carers of Catherine McAuley Westmead to discuss issues relating to the education and welfare of the student body

The group contributes to the school community through involvement in parent information evenings, New Parents’ Welcome, Open Day, Mercy Day and school carnivals.

The group supports the school financially through the P&C levy and, in consultation with the Principal, makes decisions regarding its allocation within the school.
