The school operates an open door policy in relation to home-school links. Contact with parents is not only welcomed but encouraged.
The Principal and staff will try, where at all possible, to be available to meet parents when required, but would ask that, where feasible, parents/guardians would request the meeting by contacting the school secretary so that a mutually acceptable time for the meeting can be arranged.
The following measures endeavour to develop and ensure dynamic and supportive links between school and home:

  1. Regular newsletters – at least one per term
  2. The school web site
  3. Yearly calendar
  4. Homwork notebook and notes to parents
  5. Parent-Teacher Meetings

  7. Phone calls – where necessary
  8. Religious ceremonies (e.g.: Confirmation, Ceremony of Light, Ceremony of Commitment, etc.)
  9. Liturgical ceremonies (e.g.: Christmas Carol Service, Nativity Plays, etc.)
  10. Meetings involving parents
  11. School concerts, socials, prize-givings, etc.
