Community Support Network

St John’s Grammar School has a long standing tradition of being a caring school.  We want to find ways in which we can provide practical short term assistance to school families.

Coordinated by a parent volunteer in conjunction with the School, this is a valuable opportunity for our community to be able to be even more supportive.

Areas of Support

Illness, loss of employment or the arrival of a newborn child are just three of many times when extra care and assistance may be of value to families in the St John’s community.

The program hopes to provide assistance in the following areas:

  • Providing meal
  • Providing care assistance

How to access

All families go through times when extra support is needed.  Families who would like to access the support network or who know of a family who are in need of support, are asked to contact the classroom teacher or Liz Day-Liebelt (via 8278 0205 or via email)

Confidentiality and sensitivity to the family’s needs will be kept foremost in mind.

How you can help

To enable the provision of support to families, we would like to re-establish a register of people who would be able to provide help. Please email Liz Day-Liebelt to discuss the variety of ways that you can offer help.
