Class Representatives

​The Class Representatives are parent volunteers who assist in developing and nurturing the community spirit we enjoy here at St Joachim’s.

At St Joachim’s we endeavour to make new families feel welcome and secure and feel part of a larger community.

The Class Representatives provide opportunities for families in the same year level group to socialise a couple of times a year to get to know each other. They show the community’s support for one another by acknowledging new babies, expressing sympathy and offering assistance during difficult times. The Representatives also facilitate communication between the families and the school.
