Tell us What You Think - Parent Opinion Survey 2017

 

Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is completed by a group of randomly selected parents at each school.

 

 

 

It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

 

Parents who have been randomly selected to be involved in the survey received a letter on Monday 7th August with the link for the survey. 

 

 

 

I would like to thank everyone in advance who is selected and takes part in this important survey. 
The survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7th August to Sunday 27th August.

 

Approximately 30 per cent of parents were invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous.

 

 

 

COLDS, COUGHS AND GASTRO

 

It is that time of the year where we are catching colds and infections, and there have been a few cases of gastro. Please keep your child at home if they are ill. In the case of gastro the Department guidelines state that children are not to return to school until 24 hours after the last bout of gastro. Please remind your children to use tissues to blow their nose, cough into a tissue cover their mouth, and wash hands before eating and after going to the toilet.
