COMMUNICATION


We are strongly committed to building strong relationships with everyone in our school community.  We want all parent and families to feel welcome and connected to their child's learning.  We are an approachable and open staff who value communication with all of our families.

We encourage you to be as involved as you can be in your child's education.  It is wonderful for children to see their parents at our school in a number of ways - such efforts build mutual respect and understanding as to what is happening in your child's day.

These are some of the ways you may choose to be involved at school:

  • Helping out in classrooms with reading and other activities
  • School Council and associated committees
  • Parent Teachers and Friends Group
  • Special events and activity days e.g. Athletics days
  • School camps and excursions

Please ensure your COMPASS details are correct and that you have downloaded the TIQBIZ app on your phone.
