ST DAMIEN’S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL

SCHOOL POLICIES

At St Damien’s Catholic Primary School we strategically plan for our school to have the most positive impact on our students’ lives. Our planning is both focused on the academic development of the children in our care, but also the pastoral and Catholic values we can help them to live by.

In support of our Policies, the St Damien’s Catholic Primary School Parent Handbook provides clear expectations of what families can expect at the school, as well as what roles parents can play in supporting their child’s education. Policies are important in supporting the school’s operations; however, the Parent Handbook should be able to provide the majority of information that our families may require.

Our Parent Handbook consists of information in regards to:
