Our CareMonkey Subscription has ceased. PAM has the facility put in medical details for your child/children.
If you have not already done so, we ask all families to update their students medical profile through PAM by clicking the "red bell" in the top right hand corner of the home page.
We encourage any updates to emergency contact details to be made through the office.
Please ensure all your family contact details are up to date, including contact phone numbers, residential & postal address & email address. We also require your nominated emergency contact details to be current & up to date.
Please inform the office if you have any changes to your contact details.
If your students’ Medical details have changed, please ensure all relevant information is updated through PAM.
Please check the school noticeboard in the quadrangle for any notices that have not been included on the newsletter.
It is the policy of the school that only community and local sports events for children are included in the newsletter.

Families are asked to download the free school App onto their smart phones and tablets. This will be the preferred means of sending messages to families - it is instant, no delays in email or SMS processing.
The App allows parents and caregivers to send in absence notices, out of uniform notices and has a great deal of information.
Allow notifications to be kept up to date!!!
The App can be found in the App store by searching for: Sacred Heart Tatura.
Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF)
The CSEF is an annual payment to the school to be used towards camps, sports and/or excursion costs for your children. The primary school rate is currently $125.
Families that have previously applied for CSEF at Sacred Heart are not required to complete a new application, however a copy of your current Health Care Card is required. New families to Sacred Heart School that have a valid Healthcare card or Pension card on the first day of term are encouraged to complete an application form. Forms are available from the school office, in PAM under School Administration forms in the knowledge bank or on the school website under:
Parent Information/School Forms /Administration Forms folder.
Parents are reminded to notify the school of students absences through the school App.
Parents are reminded not to respond to the SMS sent by the school for unexplained absences, as it is an automated system.

If your child is not well please keep them at home. It is not fair to expect a child who is unwell to participate in learning activities and we are also conscious of them spreading their illness throughout the class.
Medications at School
If your child requires medication at school a note identifying the child, class, medication name, dosage, and time to be given needs to be sent to the office. The medication should be in the original container.
All medication is dispensed through the office and is signed off on a medication register. If the appropriate permission is not sent with the medication it cannot be given to the student. It is also a good idea to mention to the student’s teacher that there is medication at the office and what time it is to be given.
World Book Online

Working with Children Check
We really value all parent/carer participation in a variety of ways across the school. In order to
enable you to do this you must provide a Working With Children Check. The WWCC is free for volunteers. We ask that all parents, grandparents, friends and carers who assist at the school (or
intend to in the future) apply for the WWCC at www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au or telephone the information line on 1300 652 879. If you need assistance with this, please come into the office. The school will also need a copy of your WWCC when it has been checked.
