2020 Parent Opinion Survey
WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK!
Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think about our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst all parents. It is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of parents’ perceptions of school climate, student behavior, student engagement, and experiences of remote and flexible learning. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies. All parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous. This year, the Parent Opinion Survey will be conducted from Monday 12th October to Friday 13th November. Please check your email for the invitation which includes the link and password required to complete the survey.
The survey will be conducted online, only takes 20 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the fieldwork period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, or smartphones. The online survey will be available in a range of languages other than English. These include: Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Chin (Hakha), Hindi, Japanese, Somali, Turkish, Punjabi, and Greek.
Please speak to the office if you would like more information.
CSEF Changes for 2020
A number of new and previously announced changes have been approved for the operation of CSEF for 2020 only. The final eligibility date for CSEF in 2020 has been extended from 14 April until 5 October 2020.
Families who have recently become eligible due to Covid19 and hold a valid means-tested concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. Payments will be made at 50 percent of the standard per student rates for families eligible between 15 April and 5 October 2020.
Applications must be submitted through the CSEF system by 27 November 2020. Please contact the school office if you think you may be eligible and require further information or to obtain application forms.
Due to current restrictions, our school photo day has been postponed. Once restrictions around this are eased we will be able to book in a new date. Parents are asked to hold onto their current photo envelopes as these will still be valid when we are able to hold the photo day. If restrictions do not change, and we are not able to have school photos at all this year, the company has advised us that all families who have paid already will be refunded their money.
We are now taking enrolments for the 2021 school year. Please phone the office on 58621426 to organise an enrolment form.
