Our Community - Community

Beginning with the school’s participation in St Patrick's Day March and Concert in 1953, the school has always played an active part in community activities. An early diary and visitors' book show a constant interaction with many different people and organisations. Representatives from the school have taken part in ANZAC and Remembrance Day Ceremonies, the Edgell Jog, and have competed since 1953 in the Bathurst Eisteddfod. The children visit the aged homes at Christmas time and entertain with musical items.

The Assumption School has always enjoyed wonderful support and practical assistance from its many friends. People have helped with gardening and maintenance of buildings from the very beginning. Since the inaugural Parents & Friends and Mothers' Meetings in 1952 and the tuckshop operating from the convent kitchen in the same year, our parents and friends have given the school amazing support until the present day. The Assumption School owes a debt of gratitude to these people, the dedicated staff, and the many others who have worked tirelessly for the school.

The Assumption School has been an integral part of the Parish Community since its establishment in 1952, and is clearly identified with the presence of the Church in the community. Children and staff continue to participate in parish liturgies and other activities either as a school group or with their own families.
