Parent Involvement

Our school provides quality education that supports parents in their role as the prime educators of their children. Parents are invited to be actively involved in assisting in classroom activities and all aspects of school community life from Kindergarten through to Grade 6.

We welcome parents to be actively involved in assisting in classroom activities and engaging in the School Community. Stella Maris acknowledges the connection between home and school, and supports parents who are prime educators of their children. At present we are following Covid 19 guidelines and protocols and ask that you contact the School Office for further information in relation to volunteering.

 

School Community - Our Parents & Friends

The Parents and Friends Association meets regularly on the second Tuesday of the month during school terms in the staff room, starting at 7:30pm.  All parents, guardians, and care-givers are most welcome to attend these meetings.

 

Aims of the Association

The Association exists to:

  • form a link between the parents and friends of the school and the school staff;
  • provide a forum to discuss matters of interest and concern;
  • foster the welfare and progress of the school and the students thereof;
  • provide opportunities for social gatherings;
  • raise funds.

The Stella Maris P & F provides support for the school community in areas such as social gatherings, which build community spirit. The Association aims to balance the activities for the year to ensure the best possible outcomes for all.

It is important to remember that this is YOUR school; its success will depend on the level of commitment and involvement that you are prepared to contribute.

Membership of the Stella Maris Parent and Friend Association is open to any parent, guardian, caregiver or friend of a student attending Stella Maris School.

 

Working with Vulnerable People

New laws designed to reduce the likelihood of harm and create safer environments for all children and vulnerable people have been enacted in Tasmania. The Registration to Work with Vulnerable People Act 2013 (the Act) makes it compulsory for many people who associate with children and other vulnerable people to be registered to Work with Vulnerable People. To comply with the Act, Catholic Education in Tasmania (CET) requires School Support employees, volunteers and external providers to be registered to Work with Vulnerable People.

For further information about registration and the application process, please visit the Catholic Education Tasmania website.
