PARENTS & FRIENDS

The Parents and Friends is a large group of parents and carers of current and past students, providing social activities as well as being a huge support for major fundraising events and College functions.

St Joseph’s has a great history of parental involvement. The fundraising associated with some events and the funds saved through voluntary work, are essential to the running of the College. Whilst it is understandable that people may feel hesitant about being involved in any particular group, contact with current members will convince parents that they can make a real contribution. New parents are especially welcome, every effort will be made to make you feel at home.
