A group of dads meet once a month. The purpose is social and at times a speaker comes to talk about issues of interest.

Sport

St Gerard’s has a well established netball club. Girls have the opportunity to start Netta late in Kindergarten and progress on in later grades to play in local competitions with other schools on a Saturday morning. Boys play soccer in the local district competitions.

Parent Education

The school offers evenings for parents to learn about current trends in learning and current educational practices regarding their child’s learning and well being. Sessions may include Literacy, Mathematics, Cybersafety, Resilience, Behaviour Management, School Readiness and Approaches to Parenting .
