We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.

For parenting and counselling services, visit the Family Support page, and for direction and clarity on regulations, processes and procedures at our school, read the Sydney Catholic School policies.

Communicating with Our School

We value ongoing communication with our parents; the Compass app provides a place to receive regular updates, photo snapshots of learning, grade information, parent information sessions, school reports, newsletters and notes. 

Our Parent Information Handbook provides all of our school’s particulars, but we welcome parents to visit our friendly office staff if you require any assistance. Please see our Uniform Policy to ensure your child is up to date.

Our school is a very inspiring and hardworking school. Every year we have a new motto which the whole school strives to follow and this year it is ‘Creating a difference by achieving our goals’. We also have our very important three school rules: we are safe, we are respectful, we are active learners. These rules play a very important role at our school.
