You can also check your child’s attendance at school and teacher communications. Can you access XUNO? Do you want some help? Please contact us at the Office and we will find someone to help you.
College Triennial Review
The College is in a year of review. All schools go through this every 4 years. We use all our survey results, including Parent Opinion and the recent Student Attitudes to School survey as well as student results in all subjects and many other sources of information, to help us understand what we have achieved for the students over the past 4 years and what we can do better. There will be opportunities for parents, students and staff to be involved in giving feedback to the College and this will all be taken into account when we have our formal review in October this year.
If you would like to be involved or find out more, just contact us at the General Office.
Thank you to all our families who support the students to be in full College uniform every day. It is very much appreciated and certainly helps the students to feel a part of the College community.
