St Justin’s Parish School is an integral part of the church’s life in this community. The Parish Priest exercises the Archbishop’s authority in all such delegated areas especially the areas of catechetic and doctrine.
Parents are the prime educators of their children and as such, carry this responsibility. The Principal and teaching staff assist the Parish Priest and the parents in the discharge of their responsibilities by providing an education for the children at the school.
The PEB advises and supports the Parish Priest and Principal in fulfilling their responsibility and exercising their authority on matters pertaining to the management and future direction of St Justin’s School. The PEB membership is comprised of a broad representation from each level in our school community and offers the Parish Priest and the Principal advice and assistance with:
Development of school master/strategic plans
Formulation and/or endorsement of internal school policies, and the development, monitoring, evaluation and review of policies
Ongoing development and maintenance of school facilities, equipment, buildings and environment to ensure a safe and vibrant learning environment that accommodates future enrolments
Enrolment policy and process
Selection of a Principal when such an appointment is being made and in accordance with Catholic Education Melbourne guidelines
Initiatives of parents, groups and working committees
Development of school/community relationships and home/school interaction
Integration of staff, parents and children new to the school
Development of strategies for the local promotion of Catholic Education
Promotion of school/parish relationships
Promotion of the role of the PEB
The P&F assume responsibility for organising social and fundraising events. Each year they identify a specific goal and work to raise funds to achieve the target.
The P&F meet monthly, where all parents are welcome to attend to help with school fundraising. These meetings are an opportunity for parents to suggest new ideas and volunteer, and usually ends with a coffee session enabling parents to get to know one another.
The M & D team work to maintain the school buildings and grounds. This dedicated group of parents arrange regular working bees to tackle both major and minor works that have been selected for focus. The work of the parents has resulted in our most delightful school setting. Please note that all parents are required to have a Working With Children Check.
