The Parent Assembly is an initiative of the Lismore Diocese that assists us all in becoming the best parents we can be and the first and foremost educators of our children.  Our mission is to encourage all parents to be active partners of our school and parish community.

The Parent Assembly offers support for parents in meeting the challenges of raising children. Through your valued input and feedback, we try to identify and address some of the needs of parents in our parish schools. Parent Assembly events are developed and provided in response to these needs. Please support these events so we can continue to reach out and support our school parents in the areas of Faith Enrichment, Networking and Support, Parenting Education and Advocacy.

We would really appreciate your feedback on topics that may be of interest to parents or any other ideas that may help to continue to build our sense of community and partnership within our school.
