Communication / Newsletters
We endeavor to have worthwhile communication with students, parents and caregivers. Fortnightly newsletters are distributed, usually on Thursday, to each pupil for them to take home. They are also e-mailed to parents/caregivers. Through thesenewsletters, we hope to keep parents informed of vital information, current events at school and future happenings. In 2018, our newsletter will be easily accessed online through our website. We also have a Facebook page which is regularly updated. In 2016 our School App was launched as another great way for our parents and caregivers to stay in touch.
Activity Charges / Zero Donations
Our school will no longer be requesting a donation. All other activity charges must be paid.
Separate charges for camps, outdoor activities, shows and some activities are charged throughout the year. There will be a termly activity charge of $35.00 for technology and arts subjects (total $140). This activity charge may be paid each term or in a lump sum. Or set up an AP today to cover all costs for 2018
Student Led Conferences
In terms one, two and three, students invite their family to school to share their learning journeys.
All teachers are available during these appointment times to talk to parents about their child’s learning.
Written reports outlining progress around National Standards are issued twice a year, in July and December.
