About the PRC

All Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta welcome parents as a key partner in their child’s schooling. Catholic schools rely on the involvement of parents. Research shows that when parents are actively involved in their children’s school, students will be more successful at school.

The Parent Representative Council (PRC) is the diocesan parent body that represents and supports parents and guardians of students enrolled in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta. The PRC works in collaboration with the Bishop, the Catholic Education Office, priests and school leaders, in providing students support throughout their education.

The PRC works collaboratively with schools and parents, to provide additional opportunities for parents to become involved in their child’s school community and learning journey. With access to information and educational opportunities via parent forums and guest speakers, parents can become active participants in their child’s schooling.

Meetings are held once a term and provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to network with other parents. Meetings also encourage attendees to share ideas and information relating to supporting the needs of their children throughout their years of schooling.

What is the role of the PRC?

The Parents Representative Council exists as a forum to:

  • assist parents to develop as educators through discussion and training
  • represent the combined opinions and ideas of the parent body in the Parramatta Diocese and to link the Catholic Education Office with the wider community
  • promote open communication and keep parents in touch with education and social issues
  • share and network ideas on issues that affect the education and spiritual welfare of our children
  • support parents in their roles within their family

The Parents Representative Council keeps the ‘big picture’ in perspective. It links with schools, school communities and the diocese to help parents to:

  • be aware of their responsibility and role in their child’s education
  • keep in touch with emerging issues, such as how Catholic schools are funded, the Religious Education curriculum and healthy school canteens, etc.
  • stay informed about current trends in education

A voice for parents

The Parents Representative Council is a member of the NSW and ACT Council of Catholic School Parents (CCSP). The CCSP provides a voice for parents at the State level of the Catholic Education Commission and government agencies.

Each and every Parents & Friends Association must have its individual Constitution, based on the Standard Constitution, approved by the Trustees of the Diocese of Parramatta. Any proposed amendments must also be approved by the Trustees of the Diocese.
