Dads’ Club

Dads’ Club gets together on the first Friday evening of every month in the Parish Meeting Room from 7.30pm. All dads are welcome to join for a chat, enjoying a few drinks, some pizza or a BBQ while watching sport on a big screen. Our aim is to encourage Dads to have some time out together, building connections and community, and support each other in our efforts to balance family, work, and parish life.

No RSVP needed. Just come along and feel free to bring a few dads with you.


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 .
