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.

Fundraising & Building and Library Fund

Suzanne Cory High School believes that when provided the right environment and opportunity, all students have the potential to achieve the excellence they aspire to.


Currently for our 10 Year Celebration, we are raising funds to build a pavilion for our school. It will enhance what we can offer our students, as well as our community members too.

 Facebook SCHS Community Group

Hello Parents/Guardians


In case you missed it, SCHS have a Facebook community group that you are welcome to join. This is just an informal forum where you can touch base with other members in the community. To join, click here and please ensure you answer the questions. 

Please follow the road rules

Please ensure that you follow the road rules, especially during the busy times of school drop off and pick up. If you drive into the school grounds, please go all the way around the circle to allow for more cars to enter the school. We have noticed parents stopping a little short when dropping off students, which causes more traffic chaos on the main road.


Also a reminder, that you can not turn right during the morning and afternoon drop off times. We understand that this may be a slight inconvenience, however the rule is there to help traffic run smoothly. During this time, it's also when many students are crossing the road. Not everyone is paying full attention and this is where accidents can happen. 



Pick Up Zone

May we also remind you that the pick up zone at the front of the school is not to be used as a waiting bay. Please ensure you are only using this area to pick up your child when they are ready to be collected. Students are permitted to use their phones as soon as the final bell rings. Please encourage your children to inform you if they are going to be delayed after school.
