Communication around our school is so important. If communication breaks down, we can run into problems between parents, students and staff.
The main way we communicate with parents is through Skoolbag. Very soon, we will be transitioning to the Compass Parent Portal as the main way of letting parents know what is happening around our school. The Compass Parent Portal will have permission notes, other notes from school, general information and a way to lodge sick and absence notes. We will publish the way you can access the Compass Parent Portal shortly.
Communication between parents and their child's teacher is also another important communication chain. If you have any concerns about your child, you should contact your child's teacher first. You can contact them via the school office and leave a message or email them directly if they prefer this method. Staff are not expected to answer emails after hours so please be patient when awaiting a reply. If you think there is a problem between your child and another student, again, please speak to your child's teacher first. Parents must never approach another child. Teachers often have information as to relationships between children and could offer insight as to what might be happening. If you feel that your child's teacher has not resolved the matter, you should then contact myself, the Assistant Principal, through the school office. If you believe a situation has not been resolved, you should then contact our school Principal, Mrs Lisa Gerrard, again through the school office.
It is important to follow the right communication channels throughout the school so we create a safe and happy environment for all community members.
Have a wonderful week,
