Parents as Partners

School Community

St Thomas proudly boasts a close and warm community of students and their parents, nurtured by a professional, consistent and positive teaching staff.

Parents are encouraged to become involved in many aspects of school life ensuring strong communication and commitment to the School.

At the centre of the St Thomas community is its Parents & Friends Committee (P&F). The leadership of the P&F is managed by an executive committee.

The St Thomas P& F Executive Committee’s main roles are to:

  • develop and support social connections amongst parents;
  • raise funds for targeted needs; and
  • provide support to the Principal in school matters.

The general meetings of the P&F often have a guest speaker who is an expert in an area of interest to parents. Alternatively teachers provide information about special programs or initiatives run by the school.
