Emmaus was established by a group of parents and continues to encourage parents to be involved with their child’s education and school life generally, as this benefits the student as well as the school.
Parent involvement helps to build community and partnership. Parents are expected to contribute, in practical ways, towards the successful running of the school.
Parent Involvement Program
Our Parent Involvement Program (PIP) formalises this support. PIP is designed to encourage all parents to offer practical assistance to the school in a variety of areas.
Parents and Friends (P&F) Committee
The school has a P&F Committee that seeks to:
Support and demonstrate the Emmaus vision/purpose and values
Promote fellowship, friendship and community amongst Emmaus
parents and friends.
Plan, coordinate and implement fundraising activities, with a view to
raising funds for school initiatives not funded by the school’s existing operating budget.
