Kyogle school urges parents to get involved in 2016

A LEARNING cafe, social groups and a dad's camp form some of the plans St Brigid's Primary School has for 2016 to celebrate where children's education begins - the family home.

These plans have been made that much more achievable with a $4000 grant, awarded to one Catholic school proven to be promoting the Belonging, Becoming and Believing campaign in its community.

School principal John Freebody said staff wanted to "bring parents into the school more".

"We want to start a learning cafe in our school where our community members and parents can come in and work with the children one-on-one in a cafe-style setting," Mr Freebody said.
