Reminder about Train & Tram Safety


As many of our students use public transport it is a timely reminder to ensure you are acting safely around trains and trams. In particular, students should not be crossing  in front of trains or trams. 


PTV has great resources to help you stay safe whilst travelling on their network.


Parent & Emergency Contact Information


It is extremely important that your contact details are up to date and you have emergency contact information listed with the school. This information should be updated as necessary. It is particularly important that we have someone to call if parents are unable to receive phone calls at work.


Only contacts listed as emergency contacts are permitted to collect students from school during the day. 


Please note that older siblings over 18 may be listed as emergency contacts. To update your details please email

Leaving Early / Sick Bay

Please ensure your child is aware of any appointments or requirement to leave school early prior to coming to school. Students are not permitted to use their mobile phones whilst at school and are therefore unable to receive text messages from parents or guardians. Parents are to add an attendance note on Compass and sign them out from the office when you arrive.


Likewise, students are not to call parents when they are sick. 

Students who are feeling unwell should report to sickbay and if are deemed unwell you will be contacted to collect them.
