We welcome and encourage parents to be a part of the St Andrew’s community and recognise the valuable contribution parents play in the culture of the College.
There are several ways parents can get involved and contribute to our community depending on your experience, time availabilities and interests.
Parent Ambassadors play an important role in helping foster relationships between fellow class/year level parents. Parent Ambassadors assist the College by:
- meeting and supporting new parents of the College
- developing a sense of community within the year level by organising social catchups
- helping support College functions and fundraising events where possible
- encourage parents to attend College events.
Classroom and event volunteers
In Primary School, parents can volunteer their time in the classroom to assist with reading groups, which can be very rewarding and supports their child’s learning environment.
In Secondary, parents may be engaged as guest speakers and invited to share their expertise and experience in a particular business or industry, or act as panel members/judges for subject assessments, such as our Year 9 Entrepreneurship project pitches.
St Andrew’s also holds multiple events throughout the year that parents can volunteer to assist with. Although we have dedicated staff to work events o the day, we always love a few extra sets of hands to help our events be the best that they can.
