Parent Involvement

Parent involvement is warmly welcomed and encouraged. 

As a parent, you are the most influential factor in how your child views school and its community. Your involvement with their learning goes a long way towards your child becoming a capable, resilient and happy adult.

Parents can support their child’s education in a multitude of ways. Currently parents can contribute in the following ways:

  • A rich Religious Education Program that works collaboratively with our parish
  • Heart Centred outreach fundraising programs such as Caritas and St Vincent de Paul
  • Opportunities for parents to assist in the classroom as helpers with reading, spelling, design and cooking
  • Inter-school sport
  • Technology Committee
  • Excursions
  • Chess Club
  • Friends of the Arts
  • Special Days- Harmony Day, Refugee Week, Shrove Tuesday etc
  • Co-ordination Program
  • School Board
  • Sacramental celebrations
  • After school sports
  • Working Bees

We are always looking for new ways to engage parents, caregivers and families. Please feel free to offer ideas or ask how you can help. Talk to your child's teacher, the leadership team or any staff to offer your support. The school recognises that you are a valuable resource and we welcome your participation.

Volunteer Induction

Volunteers play a vital role in the life of the children at IHM.  We know that children are more successful and resilient when their parents / caregivers / extended family are involved in their school life.

We also have a commitment to you, as a volunteer to keep you safe and of course our utmost priority is to support the children.

All volunteers will need to complete a Volunteer Induction face to face or online session in order to volunteer in our school.
