Every year we have many new families join our school community. Each new family is given a buddy parent.
This is an important role at St Joseph’s and is valuable in assisting new families to settle into our community. Existing parents are a point of contact for new parents, particularly after office hours, to help communicate information about school uniforms, sports days, lunches etc. They can also assist a new family moving into our local community with information about such things as local doctors, dentists, sporting groups etc. Buddy parents are a friendly face at school events who assist the new family to meet other families in our community.
