Parent Information

We place high importance on the relationship between school and home because the best outcomes are achieved when we all work together.

We achieve this through:

  • An extensive transition program for kindergarten children through our Bridges to School program and our formal transition sessions, which prepare the children, and their parents, for the big step of starting school.
  • Training programs for parents about literacy and numeracy teaching and learning.
  • Parent helpers in classrooms being a vital part of class programs.
  • Regular parent teacher interviews.
  • Parent-friendly report formats to better inform parents about their child’s progress.
  • Parents being encouraged to discuss issues with class teachers as they arise.
  • Tracking children’s progress and informing and consulting with parents if there are any problems.
  • Individual learning plans (ILP) so parents and teachers can work together to assist children if they are having problems with learning or need extending.

Parents can be involved in many important roles within the school including: School Council, Parents and Friends Association, working bees, volunteering in the library, the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program, helping in the classroom, on excursions and school camps and by volunteering their expertise and experience in a range of areas.

Seesaw

Seesaw is a platform for the students to share their work and create a digital portfolio. Students “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. It’s simple to get student work in one place and share with families, and nothing is shared without teacher approval. Seesaw has been extensively used across the school during Remote Learning.
