Communication at the college
School is a partnership between parents, students and the college.
While we, as a college, make every effort to respond to parents in a timely manner, it can sometimes be difficult when staff work in a school with more than 1800 students and their families. We, as do many schools, use Compass as a means to communicate with families and students. Please check Compass on a regular basis as we send out forms and information through this.
Please note that all staff, including those in the subschools, have a teaching allotment and may not always be available. Please contact the college to make an appointment if you wish to meet with someone. If you need to contact a teacher this can also be done through the email facility in Compass or a phone message can be left.
Student progress on assessment tasks – both CATs and SACs – can be monitored via Compass. Once tasks are assessed and feedback provided they appear on Compass. Please check and contact the relevant subschool or classroom teacher if you have a question or concern.
Student /Parent /Teacher Conferences
Term One Parent Teacher Conferences will occur on Tuesday 30 March. There are no scheduled classes on this day. The parent teacher conferences will take place using virtually using Webex. Information will be sent to all parents in the next few weeks via Compass and bookings can be completed online.
