Contact Protocols

School Office Hours

The school phone line (4340 0246) is open from 8.30am – 3.30pm each school day. Office staff will cordially respond to your enquiries and ensure that messages are sent through to staff in as timely a period as possible.

Parents are welcome to come to the school office and make personal enquiries or to arrange an appointment. All visitors are reminded that they must report to the office on entering school grounds as per child protection guidelines.

Mobile Phones

Many students have mobile phones and speak with parents throughout break times. Please ensure that issues related to leaving school, sickness and incidents are communicated to the office so that students’ well-being can be monitored and acted upon by school staff in a timely and appropriate manner.

Messages

Relevant messages will be passed onto students as soon as possible after they are received. It is appreciated that enough time is given to ensure student receives the message especially if it is a change in home time routine.

Email Messages

The school’s email account is processed each morning. Messages to staff are forwarded at this time. However, response from staff may be up to 48 hours to allow for timetabling constraints. Please do not send student work to the school’s email account for printing as we are unable to accommodate these requests.
