Communication and Reporting
Active involvement of parents in an educational partnership with the school assists in developing an educational program that closely reflects the expectations of the community.
Annual General Meeting
The School Council AGM will be held on Wednesday 20th March 2019. This provides for a presentation to the school community by the School Council President and the Principal on the school’s activities throughout the previous year.
These will be sent home once a term and will have samples of the work students are completing in class. These books should be returned to school at the beginning of each term.
This communication app allows the school to instantly communicate important messages and reminders with members of the school community. Other important information such as the school calendar, canteen menu and links to the Lowes uniform webpage are also accessible via the app. Please ensure that you have downloaded the app via iTunes or Play Store and joined the ‘Avondale Primary School’ page before the beginning of the new school year. Families will also need to join the grade groups that their child/ren are in e.g. Prep 2019
Information Nights are held for various year levels and programs throughout the year and are arranged as necessary to meet current needs. Information nights are not to discuss particular students, but rather to discuss a particular area of the curriculum and school events.
Parent – Information Evenings
