Strathcona greatly values the participation of the parent community and encourages parents to become involved with various activities and groups within the School. Parent involvement strengthens the community spirit within Strathcona and is very much appreciated by staff and students.
Parents are part of school life at Strathcona, where family involvement is a key element of the School’s strong community ethos. Strathcona offers many avenues for parents to get involved, in long-term roles or at one-off events.
The Purpose of the Strathcona Family Association
The Strathcona Family Association raises money for the School through a variety of activities such as the secondhand Uniform Shop, the sale of badged goods and the annual secondhand book sale. It organises and assists at a number of school functions, ‘Keys Please’ for learner drivers and BBQs at school sporting events.
Parent participation is warmly welcomed and appreciated and adds distinctive warmth to the atmosphere and a tangible sense of community.
Strathcona students benefit enormously from parent involvement which, in turn, makes a valuable contribution to School life.
Friends of Strathcona
Parent-driven Friends of Strathcona groups organise events and raise funds for students taking part in activities from aerobics, kayaking and rowing, to music, rhythmic gymnastics and snowsports. Joining such groups can provide an entree to finding others in the School community who share similar interests and passions.
