Parents are our first partners in a child’s education and quality two-way communication between home and school is essential to making your child’s experience of school the most positive it can be. The school communicates via Compass alerts through app and/or email, newsletters, email, phone calls, Facebook and occasionally via paper.
We have Parent-Teacher meetings scheduled in Term 1 (Informal Meet the Teacher) and Term 3 (Formal requiring booking online). At the beginning of each year students have a one-on-one Maths Assessment Interview (MAI) with their class teacher. Throughout the year, parents are invited to provide input on a number of topics so that we can determine what we are doing well and what we might be able to do better.
All teachers share their emails with parents to communicate and are available for meetings before or after school hours on request. Alternatively, you can phone the office to arrange an appointment.
You will be notified through our newsletter and alerts of booking for Parent Teacher meetings and Maths Assessment Interviews. You are required to book online at the Parent Portal >>>

St Mary’s Primary School uses Facebook to communicate with the whole school community.
