St Joseph’s has an excellent system of parent involvement, which works very successfully in our school. There is no ‘P & C’ in the traditional sense but more of a sharing of responsibility, participation and decision making.

The Parent Forum covers a number of areas of school life including fundraising, class parents, grounds and environment, arts and celebrations, parent education, religious education, library etc. Parent Forum oversee and provide guidance, direction and support to the School Principal as well as ensuring that their is 'Parent Voice'  & 'Parent Community'.

The 'forum' meet usually once a Term to discuss how the school is progressing, any support that is needed or to discuss parental suggestions or concerns. ALL PARENTS are welcome to attend these meetings. Currently our School Parents who sit with 'Executive' positions on the 'Forum' are:
