Parent/carer teacher meetings
Year level parent/carer meetings will be held at the beginning of the year (or at change of staff) for parents/carers and teachers to meet each other. This is a welcome and information session. Information that is to be addressed includes, school and classroom routines, procedures and expectations, behaviour management, curriculum overview, work units, communication (between teachers, children and parents/carers), parent volunteers, homework, special events (camps, excursions, celebration days), arts council, specialised lessons (library, music, PE, LOTE, RE).
Parent/carer – teacher- student interviews will be held as a support to reporting to parents in terms 1 and 3.
Other interviews with teachers and/or the principal are encouraged and need to be arranged in advance by phone or written communication to the classroom teacher or office staff.
At the end of each semester, in June and December, a report card will be issued to parents.
All parents are welcome at the school at any time during the year to discuss their child's progress.
Telephone messages and interviews
Teachers will not be called to the telephone during lesson time except for an emergency. The office staff will handle routine matters, messages for teachers and messages for students competently.
At times you may find that there is something happening at school that you may not understand. Please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange an appointment with the principal or class teacher. Interviews with teachers should be arranged with the teacher concerned. Parents must not delay the work of the class by seeking interviews with teachers during the hours of instruction or just prior to the commencement of school.
