Ms. Kelleher can help parents/families with

– Back to school costs

– School Uniform/Booklist questions

– Helping families to access local services

– A friendly voice to have a cup of tea with, chat to and bounce ideas off.

Communication with Parents

There are regular updates sent to parents and guardians from the school, through a combination of emails, notes/newsletters and text messages. Please check your child’s schoolbag regularly as it might contain important notes or consent forms.

The school also uses a text message service to inform parents/guardians of upcoming events and emergency closures etc. Please ensure that the school has one current mobile phone number at all times to ensure that you receive these important messages. If you change that number, please inform the school secretary immediately.

Please do not hesitate to approach the teacher if you are anxious about an issue relating to your child. However, if you wish to have a more detailed discussion please make an appointment through the school secretary.
