Parent Network News

The focus for the Parent Network in 2019 is on building a sense of community throughout De La Salle College by providing regular opportunities for parents to socialise, connect and participate in College activities. The Parent Network aims to bring people together and develop a more vibrant and connected community.


The first event on the 2019 Parent Network calendar was very well attended with around 100 Year 7 parents and parents of new students to the College in attendance. The morning event was held at the Tiverton Campus Gymnasium and was a great success. The Parent Network Committee would like to again welcome all the new students and their families; we hope to see you at future 2019 events. 


Please add the dates of our upcoming events to your 2019 diary.
