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.
Compass, the student information system allows parents to receive regular updates, school reports, newsletters, notes and attendance snapshot information. It is a ‘one stop shop’ to receive all organisational, administrative information about the college and your child.

Parents Advisory Council
The college maintains a parents advisory council which aims to enhance the partnership between families and the college. The council’s role is to operate as a forum for future strategic planning and to provide the means for parents to have direct input into the direction and focus of the college.
The parent advisory council consists of members of the college leadership team and parents are invited to attend. Meetings are held once a term. Notification regarding upcoming meetings are advertised through the college newsletter and the skoolbag app.
Parents In Touch
A new initiative has begun in partnership with De La Salle College Caringbah. Parents in Touch is an informative evening delivered once each term at alternate schools.
