We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.
Communication is crucial at Galilee Catholic Primary School Bondi and we keep parents updated about learning, procedures and protocols.
We communicate through the Compass app, which is a place for parents to receive regular updates, photo snapshots of learning, grade information, parent information sessions, school reports, newsletters and notes.
Parents are welcome to visit office staff if they require assistance to upload the Compass app on their device.
At Galilee the P&F is called the Parents and Friends Coordinating Group (PFCG) and every parent/carer is automatically a member. The main function of this group is to plan and coordinate community and fundraising activities. The group is empowered to coordinate activities in consultation with school leadership that focus on:
- parent education
- faith development/spirituality of parents
The group shares news via the school newsletter during the year.
