ST JOSEPH'S SCHOOL
Parents are encouraged to be a part of the school and are required to assist in a variety of ways - serving any one of the following committees: Board of Trustees and the P.T.F.A. (Parents Teachers and Friends Association).
The P.T.F.A. is a body of individuals who support the school in a number of ways such as fundraising, parent education and a variety of other voluntary tasks.
These groups are an excellent way for parents to get to know each other and show support for the school they have chosen to educate their children. Other activities may include coaching of sports teams, helping within classrooms and assistance with transport.
Parents are encouraged to be proactive in suggesting and assisting in organising any event which they feel will add much needed resources to the school or help to develop a closer community link between parents.
We have a very strong relationship with St Brigid's Church, our Parish.

Parish Policy re: Sacraments of Initiation
Preparing children for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is the responsibility of the parents responding to an invitation from the Parish.
Participation in Children’s Liturgy on a Sunday morning at St. Brigid’s will become an integral part of the child’s preparation for the Sacraments of Initiation.
