La Retraite Roman Catholic Girls' School

Parent Staff Association

Parent Staff Association

Welcome to the La Retraite Parent Staff Association

Our aim is to  

  • Promote effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school 
  • Engage in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the students.  
  • Provide opportunities for families to meet, socialise and most importantly have fun. 

How does it all work? 

The PSA is run by a committee.  We aim to meet at least once a term and with the exception of the AGM, our meetings are very informal and are held at the school meeting room. 

As a parent at La Retraite you are automatically a member of the school’s PSA
