Reporting to Parents
A comprehensive reporting format is provided by our school. Each year parents are given two written reports on their child’s progress, (mid year and end of year).
In addition, students in Years 3 and 5 receive individual student reports on their NAPLAN tests. These are distributed in September.
Parents also have the opportunity to take part in discussions on their child’s progress at any time. Parents are also offered the chance to participate in Parent-Teacher Interviews in Term 1. This allows the parent(s) and teacher to set agreed learning goals for the year.
Teachers also share an overview of their teaching and learning programs. At the beginning of each new school year an Acquaintance Night is held to allow parents to meet with teachers.
The materials and services fee charged at the beginning of the year includes a component for stationery, classroom resources and school resources. Stationery will be issued to children by the class teacher as required throughout the year.
Payments can be made by:
- Full payment end of week 4 term 1. or payment in instalments
- First payment end of week 4 term 1.
- Second payment end of week 1 term 2.
- Third payment end of week 1 term 3.

You can choose your level of involvement depending on your commitments. Parents are encouraged to become a part of school life. Parents are welcome within the classroom where you can be involved in many activities (reading, excursions and craft to name a few).
On a more formal level you can join any of the following Governing Council sub-committees – Parents and Friends/Fundraising, Finance, Grounds and Facilities, Canteen and OSHC. For more information about these portfolios please speak to the Front Office Staff or the Principal.
