Communication

School Office

The office is attended from 8.00am to 4.00pm each day.  Outside these hours the school’s telephone system is switched to a messaging machine.  If you ring the school after hours please leave a message as these are checked each morning at 8.00am when the office opens.

Blog, Facebook and calendar

A Principal’s blog, Facebook feed and schedule of events are updated regularly on the landing page of this website to keep parents up to date on current news and events.

Interviews

An interview may be requested by teachers or parents at any time.  Please contact the teacher via the front office on 9339 5055 to make an appointment.  Parents are offered two formal interview times per year to discuss their child’s progress.  By the end of week 3 in term 1 all parents will have been given the opportunity to meet with the class teacher for a personal discussion; or attend a talk given in class by the teacher; and receive a guide of class policies and requirements.

Class Notes

Throughout the course of the year class teachers will issue notes related to class activities.  It is important that these are read and where necessary acknowledged.  In this manner vital communication channels can be maintained throughout the year. Please ask your children on a regular basis whether there are any notes.  We use CONNECT and all parents have a user name and password.

Reports

Parents of students in years 1-6 receive a DOE System Summative Report at the end of each semester.  In addition, in semester 2, years 3 and 5 will receive a NAPLAN report showing individual progress against national standardized bench marks for the year level in literacy and numeracy. Kindergarten children receive a portfolio each semester. Parent interviews are held following reports (early in term 1 and term 3)
