Parents are encouraged to make an appointment and come to the school to see the students at work in the classroom and to discuss progress and/or issues concerning their child with their child’s teacher or with the Principal.
Educational success for any student requires interaction between home and school which results in deep and sympathetic understanding between the two. Parents who wish to assist their child with specific skills are encouraged to discuss this with the teacher to establish a constructive partnership.
How parents can help
Parents are invited to assist in many different activities – in the classroom with music or hobbies, reading or mathematics, in the library, or with sport. However, these are only some of the areas where help would be welcomed. If you do not have spare time during school hours, many teachers would be grateful for any help you could give, eg. making teaching aids or processing and displaying written work.
Let the teacher know when you will be able to come to the school – some may come once a fortnight, others during a six-week period and others may be happy to come once or twice a week. Any time you can give is valuable and teachers will be happy to suggest activities which would best suit your schedule.
In addition, teachers are always happy to answer queries if you need further advice. Requests for help in particular activities are often made in the school Newsletter. Please do not feel you need wait for such an invitation. Your child’s teacher will always be happy to talk with you about ways to in which you could assist.
Permission notes for Excursions, Performances and Camps
All permission notes for activities outside the school are returned to the school signed by a parent/carer. Students cannot attend an excursion or camp without permission.
Please clearly mark your child's name on all personal belongings, including clothing.
Unclaimed belongings are kept at the front office. Items remaining at the end of each term are sorted - named items are returned to the children concerned and the remainder donated to charity.
