Current Parents

Volunteer Opportunities

We actively encourage parents to come into school and work alongside teachers, outside the classroom, on a voluntary basis. Many parents have expertise in a wide array of areas where their contribution is really essential to our school. Parents who wish to help in school are required to meet with the teacher, Head of School, or Volunteer Coordinator prior to the first visit, and rigorously comply with the school’s policy regarding Security and Child Protection, as outlined in the prospectus.

Parents and Friends Association

The Parents and Friends Association is an active St. Austin School association charged with organizing a variety of social and faith enriching events for the benefit of St. Austin students and their families. Upon admittance to the school, all parents of a St. Austin student become members of the Parents and Friends Association. The intention of the PFA is to encourage ever-stronger links between home and school.
