Media Consent (copyright issues)

Throughout the school year images, filming, worksamples and the like from our students are taken and recorded. Occasionally we use these media in places like our web site, in newsletters or even on brochures as part of our everyday work in promoting the school or demonstrating student achievement. Our Legal Services Branch has developed a form that allows parents to approves the various uses of these items or to ask for them not to be used for legal or other reasons. As a result we ask that you download and complete the Media Release form

 

Student absences

To report student absences please send a text to 0427 019 460 containing the student's:

 name

day or days absent and

reason

- this is a text only automated service.

Regular attendance promotes the best learning opportunities for students. If students are ill and cannot attend school please telephone the school office to notify the school of your child’s absence.

Please also provide a note to the teacher when your child returns to school to explain the student absence.

If you require to collect your child early or to leave the school throughout the day to attend an appointment please sign out your child in the school office.

Sometimes parents are required to collect their child during learning times to attend an appointment or to leave school grounds early. I request that parents please sign children out at the office before progressing to the classroom to collect them.

Advanced notice, in writing to the class teacher, will enable the teacher to support your child to be ready on time. This also provides students the opportunity to prepare any homework or catch-up work that their teacher may wish to negotiate with them. 

Medication

If your child requires medication that must be administered by the school under the directions of a medical practitioner then you must complete a Request to Administer Medication at School form (PDF, 128 KB).

Gifted education

If you believe that your child may be identified as Gifted you may wish to also download the Gifted and Talented Sayler Checklist for Parents (PDF, 85 KB).
