Parent Information

Student Attendance

It is important that students are on time for school each day. Parents should aim to have children arrive at school between 8:30 am and 8:50 am.  Students will be deemed to be late if they are not in their classrooms by 8:55 am. If there is some unforeseen circumstance or other good reason for lateness or absence, please ring the College Front Desk or write a short note explaining the situation.

Parent Handbook

The Parent Handbook is provided to all parents on enrolment, but is also available by asking at the Front Desk.

Assemblies

The Primary School takes part in assembly every Monday morning from 9:40 am to 10:25 am. Each Primary class in turn organises an assembly for other Primary classes on Fridays from 12:30pm – 1:00 pm. Parents, grandparents and friends are always welcome to attend the Primary School Assembly at this time.

The Secondary School assembly takes place on Monday mornings from 8:55am – 9:40am and often features guest speakers who introduce a Bible theme for the week.

Once per term there is a whole school assembly (in the Sports Centre) with a special focus. Parents, grandparents, past students and friends are always welcome to attend. They are normally held on a Monday morning commencing at 10:30 am. See the College Calendar for specific dates.

Volunteers

The involvement of parents and grandparents as volunteers is always welcomed. The Parent Handbook outlines the process of registering as a volunteer.

Student Welfare Program

The Student Welfare Worker assists the school community to provide pastoral care and general spiritual, social and emotional support to all students.  This can include support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spiritual issues, the provision of student welfare, behaviour development support and enhancing engagement with the broader community. This service is provided to students on a voluntary basis. For more details, please contact the Student Welfare Worker on 8266 5122 or by email here.

Anyone who has either positive feedback or a complaint about the Program is encouraged to contact the Principal on 8266 5122 or by email here.
