Parents as Partners

Let’s work together!

Santa Sophia Catholic College acknowledges that parents and caregivers are the primary educators of their child. It is the mission of the college to form strong partnerships with all parents and caregivers to work together in helping all students grow and be the best version of themselves.

Parent Education Network

Santa Sophia offers events with expert speakers (3 times a year) and general meetings with those interested who are wanting to provide feedback or be involved in parent initiatives (once a term).

 

 

Parents-FacebookLive

Santa Sophia Connect Facebook LIVE events

These focus on a variety of topics (digital technology, wellbeing and anxiety, helping your child with literacy and numeracy at home). At the start of the year we survey our parents on topics which would be valuable for them - and this forms the basis of the topics for the sessions. Parents can join in LIVE and ask questions during the session or watch the replay. You can find previous sessions on our Facebook Page or our Youtube channel.
