Catholic School Parents SA

Catholic School Parents South Australia (CSPSA) – promotes and supports parents and families by providing a voice for education and issues which affect their children.

CSPSA is an advocate for the families, parents and carers of children in Catholic schools, Catholic early learning centres and pre-schools. 

The organisation believes that:

  • All children have the opportunity to access a quality education, allowing each child to reach his or her potential; and
  • School and family collaboration is essential to successful spiritual, academic and developmental growth.

CSPSA aims to build an environment where parents can be empowered to take an active role as the primary educators of their children.

Once you join the school community, you become members of the Catholic Schools Parents S.A. and are encouraged to participate in its myriad of activities and opportunities.

As a volunteer, you can serve the school in many ways, including:

  • Building community: St Joseph's parents arrange a friendly welcome and smooth transition for all new families.
  • Fundraising: The Catholic Schools Parents S.A. plans and co-ordinates fundraising activities throughout the year.
  • Student activities: The Catholic Schools Parents S.A. organise events for children to participate in
