New Parent Information

Parental involvement is encouraged within the College, particularly in the Primary School where parents can be involved in helping out in the classroom as well as in the Library.

Volunteers are always welcomed in the Library, where parents can help with covering books, reading to children and taking part in the creation of the displays which make our Library such a special place for all the children.

In each Grade in the College the parents contribute to community by being involved in the 'Grade Parent' system. This is where some parents are chosen to be the Grade Parents for the year and usually organise some social events for parents and/or students.

Portal Access

The College runs an Administration Software package which incorporates both Student and Parent Portals.

On these portals there are daily notices, letters, student diary, timetables, homework, weekly College Newsletter and much more. The Student Portal is called  and the Parent Portal is called .

Access is given to students and parents upon enrolment. These portals are an essential part of our Administration system and communication to Parents and Students.

The Enrolment Information Form is submitted just prior to the student commencing their enrolment at the College.

HANDBOOKS
