Communication Methods in 2014

31/01/2014
Our school has a number of ways that we communicate with our parents and these are:

School newsletter:

Our school newsletter is disseminated on Friday afternoons, and contains a range of important information and updates. It is essential that you read our newsletter every week so that you are up to date with all that is happening at our busy school.  We disseminate the newsletter electronically to parents on Fridays . If you do not  receive an electronic  copy of our school email, please email James Price - jpric192@eq.edu.au, with a request to  add your address to our distribution list.

School website:

Our school website is updated every Friday with news, events , and parent letters .  You can also find information about our class times, tuckshop menu and   Outside School Hours Care. Go to www.brisbanecentralss.eq.edu.au for an instant update.

QSchools app:

The QSchools app can be downloaded from  iTunes Store and Google Play for free. All information from our website is downloaded to the app, and is a quick and convenient way to keep informed.

Social media:

Follow us on Twitter – @Bris_Cent_SS and like us on Facebook- Brisbane Central State School. Like and follow us today!!

Parent letters:

Class teachers will be sending home Class Information letters by the end of next week. Please keep an eye out for these so that you have an overview of what will be happening in your child’s class this year. Periodically, permission letters will also be sent home via your child for excursions, activities and events. If you suspect that these letters have not made it home, please follow up with your child’s class or specialist teacher.

Email:

All Education Queensland teachers are allocated an email address. As it may be difficult for working parents to “touch base” with their child’s teacher on a regular basis, email can also be an efficient and effective way to maintain effective communication between parent and teacher.  Should you wish to obtain the email address of your child’s teacher, please do not hesitate to contact Carolina Duncan in our school office or via email – admin@brisbanecentralss.eq.edu.au.  Our class teachers will be sharing their email address with parents at the information evening also.

In person:

Often the most effective way to communicate with either myself or your child’s teacher is in person.  Sometimes teachers are available before and after school for a quick chat. When a more in-depth discussion is required, we ask that you make a time with either myself or your child’s teacher so that we can allow enough time to discuss your concerns and questions. If you are worried about your child or have a concern, we ask that you discuss it with us earlier rather than later. Often issues can be resolved quickly when they are raised in a timely, open and honest way. We believe that there is a solution to every problem, and we want to ensure that all students are happy, safe and learning. To help us to do this, we need parents to let us know when something isn’t working well for your child. You can also let us know when something is working well for your child!
