Parent teacher communication

Home-school communication

Communication between home and school is actively encouraged. There are several avenues available to both parents and staff.

  1. Phone calls, emails, notes or personal contact. Phone numbers, contacts and addresses should be kept current in the school records. Parents are urged to attend to these matters if necessary so that emergencies, particularly, can be handled without delay.
  2. We are fortunate to have a lot of volunteer parent helpers who participate in a range of classroom activities.

    In an effort to improve the service to our children and to ensure our school is as safe as possible, all classroom volunteers are required to participate in a 60 minute workshop on Child Protection Policies, Duty of Care, Workplace Health and Safety and Codes of Conduct.

    These workshops will be held throughout 2013. Workshops are free. At the completion of these workshops, parent volunteers will receive Kin Kora State School certification which will be used to identify trained classroom helpers.

    All classroom volunteers will require a Blue Card. Please apply through the office. Applications are free.
  3. Notices and Weekly Newsletters are distributed through the eldest child in the family attending school. The weekly Newsletter is sent home or emailed each Tuesday.
  4. Interviews between parents and teachers, or parents and a member of the Administration team, can be arranged by appointment. 
  5. Reporting to Parents
