Whole School Assembly is every Friday from 8:45am.
Parents and carers are always very welcome to share in these school gatherings.
Classroom teachers require communication from parents if the child is going to be picked up from school by someone other than the child’s parents/guardians.
If no authorisation is evident, the child’s parents will be contacted before the child is released.
The Principal and classroom teacher need to be aware of any legal documents that are applicable to the student’s safety and contact with parents. Copies of Court Orders must be provided to the school at your earliest convenience. It is our legal obligation to oblige to the most recent court order that we have access to. These will be kept in confidence within the school administration files.
Parents may communicate with their child’s teacher or school administration via e-mail. It is requested that this communication be kept to a minimum in organising a meeting time or providing brief information necessary to the teacher. Any urgent information pertaining to the day should be communicated via a personally delivered message to confirm receipt of the message, especially if it relates to information for the day concerning early dismissal or alternative emergency contact details.
If parents have any concerns, we prefer face to face communication so that we can approach the situation with effective communication processes in order to find a solution to the problem through discussion.
E-mail addresses are available on the School Website.
