Information Nights/ Presentations
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.
Start of Year - February. Information Presentations are held for each year level early in Term 1. These evenings give parents the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher and learn more about the programs that will be implemented during the year.

Teachers meet with each parent to discuss their child’s report and academic and social progress. These interviews are booked using Compass.
