Parental Involvement

Parental Involvement

One of the strengths of the Cardijn Community is the involvement of our parents in the life of the College.

Cardijn is a partnership between parents and the College and we seek a commitment from families to participate in the life of the community in one or more of the following activities:

  • helping in the College canteen
  • serving on the Music Committee
  • representing parents on the College Board
  • helping to organise the Parents and Friends major raffle
  • coaching sports teams or being involved in sporting activities such as the Annual Sports Day
  • assisting with the maintenance work of grounds and buildings
  • assisting with youth ministry programs
  • helping in the Library
  • supporting the school co-curricular sporting program
  • helping on the International Pedal Prix
  • assisting in the Arts Learning Area (Drama, Music, Art, etc.)

Getting involved
When parents/guardians want to contribute as a volunteer at Cardijn College they must obtain a police clearance through the Catholic Police Check Unit and complete an induction process.

This process is mandatory as part of the College and SACCS Child Protection Policy. The application for the Catholic police check is facilitated through the College and is free of charge. A one hour induction seminar is usually held in early March of each year.

If you’d like to get involved with the College community, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.

Parents & Friends

Parents and guardians are encouraged to share their time and talents in a tangible way with the school community through the Parents and Friends Association.

The Parents and Friends Association was established in 1984 and is managed by an Executive team. The Parents & Friends is open to all parents and friends of the College.

Its purpose is to assist the school in whatever way it can, particularly in the area of hospitality and welcome to new parents and in helping to meet the College financial commitments.

If you are interested in joining our Parents and Friends community, please contact Ms Anita Patton on 8392 9524.
