We like to stay in touch with parents and provide written updates and information through mailings on a regular basis.

Our communications policy is aimed at providing information through the most convenient method to each parent. Some families prefer mailings to be posted home, some prefer email copies. We often make use of 'student post', and in these cases, a text alert is sent home to make parents aware that there is an important letter on its way home.

You can download copies of our latest letters and mailings from this page. If you require a letter to be sent in a different format, due to physical disability or other access issues, please contact the main school office who will endeavour to help you.
