Parent School Partnership

Parent Project Groups

Assumption starts 2020 with the Parent Project Groups Model in place from last year.

The intention of this parent/school partnership model, as displayed below, is that the school and parents work together on projects throughout the year for the benefit of the children attending Assumption.



FOCUS: Implementation of community ‘friend-raising’ events.

* Groups are formed on interest / grade / friend connections.

* Fundraising is not the key focus.

* Parents and carers meet with leadership team at the start of the year, drafting plans and placing them on the school calendar.


Events could include:

-          Back to school welcome activities

-          Kinder orientation hospitality

-          Mothers’ Day activity

-          Fathers’ Day activity

-          Community kitchen garden

-          World Teachers’ Day

-          Year 6 Graduation supper

-          Meet the classmates activities

-          Community outreach - Edgell jog, SVDP appeals, etc


* Parents could assist with one activity, or more, depending on arrangements organised  and time available

* Meetings required are at the start of the year then briefings before events with a member of staff.


The table below lists some of the activities the parents assisted in organising in 2019.
