Parent Engagement

Parents and carers who are engaged and interested in their child’s learning and life at school can play a positive role in building their child’s academic, social and emotional growth. Some things you can do to get involved at SJV include:

  • Communicate with your child’s teacher so that you may share information to have a fuller understanding of your child.
  • Read with your child every day. It will improve their learning and wellbeing and demonstrate the importance you place on learning.
  • Stay up to date with school life by reading the weekly school newsletter and following SJV on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Follow the Facebook page for your child’s year level.
  • Join in any activities at school you are invited to attend such as Masses, Assemblies, Learning Showcases.
  • Get involved with the P & F and volunteer at events such as the Welcome BBQ, Discos, Walkathon.
  • Attend any social events organised by your class co-ordinator.
  • Volunteer in the Tuckshop, with classroom reading, excursions and sports events.
  • Go to Mass at St John Vianney’s Church with your child.

By building a strong partnership with our school you will discover significant benefits for your child as they too will build stronger relationships with other children, have greater confidence and social skills and will be more likely to enjoy learning.
