Communication between home and school is vital to ensure students are given every opportunity to succeed.
Communication to families
Our school e-newsletter which is emailed home each Thursday is our main form of communication. Please make sure we have a current email address so that you receive the newsletter. If, for any reason you are not receiving the weekly newsletter, please contact the office. A hard copy of the school newsletter can be collected from the school office if parents do not have access to the internet.
Information about school events and achievements are advertised on our school notice board on Lutwyche Road.
Class notes may be sent home by teachers to inform or gain permission regarding special events or to keep parents informed about class programs.
Assemblies are held every Friday morning in our air conditioned school hall. This is an opportunity for parents to find out more about what is happening in our school as well as celebrating the achievement of our students.
Communicating with teachers
Parents are welcome to meet with teachers at any time of the year to discuss their child’s progress. Unscheduled meetings before school are difficult for teachers as they are preparing for the day. Please either contact the office or contact the teacher to arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.
All teachers have an Education Queensland email address. Often sending an email can be an effective form of communication if parents are unable to come to school to meet with teachers. Please see your class teacher or contact the office to receive teachers’ email addresses.
If parents have any questions or concerns or they would like to raise an issue, your child’s teacher is the first point of contact. If the issue cannot be resolved, parents should make a time to meet with the teacher and the principal together to work on a successful outcome.
Report Cards are issued at the end of Term 2 and Term 4. Parents or teachers may request an interview following the release of report cards.
Formal interviews are offered to parents at the end of term 1 and term 3. To allow working parents to attend, interviews are held in the hall after school and into the evening on the same day. An online booking system is utilised to make booking multiple times for siblings easier.
