St Gregory the Great Parish Primary School:
At St Gregory the Great Catholic Primary School, we strongly believe the school is a vital component of the parish in the faith education of its children from Foundation to Year 6. We cherish our supportive community spirit. We celebrate our faith with creative and contemporary liturgies, give practical witness to Gospel values and explore current social issues. Open communication between staff, students and families is encouraged. Throughout the school year many opportunities are provided for school families and parishioners to be actively involved in educational, emotional, social and fundraising activities.
School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Council is just one way parents can become involved with the school and work with other Council members to assist the school as a school advisory group.
The purpose and role of the School Advisory Council is to:
- Provide informed advice to the Parish Priest and Principal
- Contribute to the formulation of school policy
- Support the School in the development of plans for the future
- Assist in the development of strategies for the promotion of Catholic Education
- Support projects in fulfillment of its objectives.
Students are given the opportunity to attend Mass as a whole school and within year levels.
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 students attend a 9am Parish Mass weekly.
Our children are actively involved in these Masses as they are given opportunities to undertake readings and altar serve at each Mass. Our Parish Priest, Father Charles Balnaves, ensures the Mass, his Homily and discussion of the Gospel is adapted so that it is relevant to our students.
Regular opportunities also exist for whole school Masses to celebrate liturgical calendar events.
