Class parents

The Class Parent Program provides a contact point for parents seeking information on the school and class related social activities. Each year, a parent from each class volunteers as a Class Parent, undertaking to welcome the families of the new students entering the class and to coordinate or assist with a small number of social or fundraising activities in conjunction with other parents from their class. Class Parents also coordinate a class contact register for interested families to organise gatherings, playdates and parties.

CareMonkey

CareMonkey allows the school to automatically collect electronic medical and emergency contact forms from parents. Parents can include medical conditions, medication requirements, provide medication instructions and attach a plan (eg. asthma plan) from their GP.

Permission forms for school activities can be circulated and signed online with reminders for completion. Rather than this information sitting in a filing cabinet or on an office database, we make this information available to your teachers via a smartphone app, saving vital time in an emergency. Your child’s teacher will know exactly what to do, and who to call.
