St Ambrose has an excellent system of parent involvement, which works very successfully in our school. The Parent Forum covers a number of areas of school life including fundraising, class parents, grounds and environment, arts and celebrations, parent education, etc. Parent Forum oversees and provides guidance, direction, and support to the School Principal as well as ensures that there is a 'Parent Voice' & 'Parent Community'.
The Parent Forum meets once a Term to discuss how the school is progressing, any support that is needed, or to discuss parental suggestions or concerns. ALL ARE WELCOME to attend these meetings, alternatively, meetings are live-streamed via the St Ambrose Facebook page.
Parent Forum is always looking for feedback and suggestions on the direction of our school, if you would like to raise anything please let us know.
