Our acquaintance night meet and greet was a huge success! What a great opportunity to bring our families, students and teachers together to share learning and build positive connections. It was lovely to tour the buildings, say hello, and watch as students introduced their families to their new teachers.
Our partnership with families is what helps your child to make the best progress. We will be looking to use different ways to keep you informed of your child’s learning this year. We hope to support you to know their next steps in learning and how you can help them.

All class teachers have been working in their units to determine appropriate homework agreements in line with the school homework policy. We know homework is a much debated topic with varying responses from families. Recent surveys show some families want more homework, whilst others state their children get too much or that it interferes with other events. Teams have tried to work together to ensure consistency in amount and expectations of time spent. We want your child to be happy, able to successfully complete their tasks and have the all important balance between work and play. Please do not hesitate to contact teachers if you have any queries around your child’s homework.
Class Communication Apps
A way we are improving communication with families is by using a range of electronic communication apps. These will be focused primarily for teacher-parent communication, with students being taught to use the tool to share their learning. Year Levels have opted to use the following tools:
Year 1: Class Dojo
Year 2-4: Seesaw
Year 5-7: Edmodo
To respect the work-life balance of staff responses to families will be within the working hours and can take between 1-3 working days. To communicate important information please contact the school office - this will ensure your query can be promptly followed up.
