Parents & Community - Parent Communication

The active involvement of parents in the educational partnership ensures the development of an educational program, which closely reflects the needs of the community.

Avenues of effective formal and informal communications exist to provide opportunities for teachers and parents to establish a friendly, supportive and co-operative working relationship. The key to ensuring success for your child at school is to be fully aware of what your child is involved in and to be actively involved in all aspects of your child’s education.

To assist parents to be fully aware of what is occurring at school the following processes apply at Tom Price Primary.
