Parents can communicate with their child’s teachers through this platform. School announcements are made on this platform too however the office staff cannot receive replies from parents. If parents need to respond to a school announcement they must email the individual directly or contact the school office by phone.
Reports are handed out to families at the end of Term 2 and Term 4.
