The Archbishop's Charter for Catholic Schools Archdiocese of Sydney

The Archbishop's Charter for Catholic Schools, Archdiocese of Sydney recognises parents as their child"s primary educators and important partners in their learning journey. This recognition is founded on the belief that when schools, families and communities work together in partnership; student learning and wellbeing is enhanced and school communities are strengthened.

The CEO Sydney works closely with its key stakeholders – regional offices, local school communities, parent groups and the NSW Council of Catholic School Parents (NSW CCSP) - to establish strong connections that encourage and support a deeper understanding of ways to connect learning at school and at home.

The CEO Sydney also acknowledges our schools and families are part of the broader Catholic community, and supports initiatives that connect home, parish and school.
