Community engagement

'Parent engagement in education is about parents and carers being positively involved in their child's learning, their school community and their child's sport and social life.

Parents and families play an important role in supporting their child's education. The earlier parents and families become engaged, the better it is for their children.

Parent engagement is more than being involved and informed about school activities. It is actively engaging with your child's learning, both in the home and at school. When schools and families work together, children do better and stay in school longer.

Parent engagement in learning can help children to do better at school, be more engaged with their school work, go to school more regularly, behave better and have better social skills. (Extract from Australian Government Department of Education and Training Website)

For this reason Sadleir PS has a strong focus on parents being engaged in the school. The Parent Café, P&C Committee, parent workshops, playgroup, classroom helpers and open days are all opportunities for parents to become involved in school activities.
