Community Environmental Park

The community proudly celebrated the opening Stage One of St Pius X Community Environmental Park on Sunday 23rd October Banyule City Council Mayor Cr. Craig Langdon with the assistance of the our younger members of Heidelberg West community officially cut the ribbon wrapped around the main entrance gate and walked through to the new garden space.

Our Community Environment Park will be a sustainable educational garden and cafe that will enhance learning opportunities for students as well as grow relationships with other community groups, individuals, educational institutions in an attempt to create a community hub around our school and Parish through and with an emphasis on food, and sustainable projects/initiatives.

Check out the Foodweb Education website for more information about our edible garden.

Family Engagement

Parents are the first educators of their child. St Pius X partners with parents for their child’s education, supported by collaboration with the parish community, CEOM and the wider community. We also respect parents’ fundamental human rights, including the right to know, understand and share in school decisions that affect the education of their child.

St Pius X is a family engagement school, see the Catholic Education Melbourne website for more information. Check out the Parent engagement St Pius X animoto here.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT FOR STUDENT LEARNING

St Pius X works closely with the local and wide community and has many valuable partnerships with the central purpose of supporting and enhancing students learning, creating bright futures for all.

The Lord Northcote Lodge continues to support St Pius X through awarding student bursaries each year. This charitable assistance directly supports the learning and future schooling of students.

The school community is very grateful for the ongoing support of Freemasons Victoria. The $500 bursaries per student, are allocated to the tuition and extra curricular activities costs throughout the year, such as Camp, Swimming Program, Sports and Excursions. 2-4 students are supported annually.
