Opportunities to be involved in the St Philip’s community include:
The School Education Board
Parents and Friends
School Advisory Council
The St Philip’s School Advisory Council (SAC) provides a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. While the SAC does not have governance responsibility or decision-making authority, it supports the principal and school leadership and provides an important connection with the parish.
Serving on the SAC is a form of lay ministry and a call to support in matters pertaining to faith formation, school improvement, master planning and finance.
Parents & Friends
Our Parents & Friends Committee provides an opportunity for parents and friends to be involved in school life. The committee is active in various aspects of the school including Open Days, Feast Day celebrations, fundraising, and supporting the learning of all students. It provides an opportunity to meet other families in the school and be an active member of our vibrant community.
We have a tuckshop that is open on Fridays. Parents and friends are encouraged to volunteer for Tuckshop duty. All volunteers must have a current Working With Children Check and must sign a Child Safe Code of Conduct.
Parent involvement and participation is actively encouraged at St Philip’s. You can participate in a variety of ways such as school council, parents and friends, working bees, volunteering in the classrooms and just by staying up to date with school news and happenings.
The St Philip’s Sports Committee was formed with the aim of providing St Philip’s School with parental support in the organisation of sporting and other activities. The Sports Committee works as a sub-committee of the Parents & Friends. It looks after grounds maintenance around the school and is instrumental in organising and running the annual School Sports Day. It is open to any parents who wish to become involved in assisting with activities. The Sports Committee is an active part of St Philip’s school community and welcomes all parents interested in helping the school.
