Contacting Teachers – Connect

Please feel free to contact the school if you wish to discuss your child’s progress. You may do this by e-mailing the teacher or by phoning or writing to the school and making an appointment. The preferred method to contact parents is using the Connect learning management system, which allows teachers, parents and students to share information and liaise with each other. More information is HERE. It is VITAL that parents join Connect and update their email address.

The appropriate Year Coordinator is generally the best person to contact for general concerns. If your question is subject based and the teacher is unavailable then you may also wish to talk to the appropriate Head of Learning Area, who can also be contacted if you have concerns that your child’s teacher is unable to resolve.  Please make sure that an appointment time is arranged before arriving at the school.

Parent Contact Information

On occasion, the school may need to contact parents or guardians urgently but may be hindered by out of date contact information. Parents and guardians are asked to keep the school informed immediately if there is a change of address, email address, phone numbers, mobile contacts or emergency contact information.

Phone Calls and Messages to Students

If contacting your child by mobile phone, please do so only during recess and lunch times. In the case of an emergency, please contact Student Services on 6274 1321 and a message will be brought to the student’s class.
