Junior School Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings
Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings will be held for all Year 4-6 classes during Week 4. This is an opportunity for parents to meet one on one with their son’s Homeroom teacher to share relevant information to best support their son. Parents are still able to view their bookings until Friday 17 February, but cannot make changes to their bookings.

New Payment Methods
Please be aware of the change to online payments. The link to School Fee payments on the website has been removed. Charges to the school fee account for the cost of all co-curricular sports and activities (including sport and music tours, clubs, school trips and excursions) will be billed to your School Fees Account and will be due and payable immediately.

You should now make payments via BPay using the Biller Code and Customer Reference (Ref) located on the top right of your STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT (see image below). These BPay payments can be made from either your cheque, savings, debit or credit card account.

The other payment options are:

If you have further queries please email the Finance Office.

Sport Education Breakfast – Strength and Conditioning
Students, parents, siblings and staff are invited to attend our first Sport Education session on Thursday 16 February. This will be held at Westcourt library from 6.45am to 8.00am.

P&F Welcome Night Mexican Fiesta Saturday 25 February

Our P&F do a wonderful job of organising a Welcome event at the start of each year. It is a great way for parents and carers to meet new friends and catch up with old friends. Please put the date in your diary and go online to book your tickets here.

Drop Off / Pick Up at the College
In the event that your son is required to be picked up early from school due to illness or doctor appointments, parents and caregivers are permitted to drive to the top roundabout, sign out and collect their son. This applies to all students in Years 4-10.
At all other times, we ask that parents refrain from driving up to the roundabout as this area is used as a thoroughfare for students during school hours.

Parent Lounge
Please see the link below for instructions for new parents to log into the Parent Lounge. Please refer to the 2017 SEQTA engage Parent User Guide under the “Documents” tab in the Parent Lounge. A Parent IT Information evening will be held on Thursday 23 February 2017. See the login instructions via the link below.

Student ID Card
We plan to have ALL Student ID Cards printed and issued in Week 4. Continuing students are able to use their 2016 Student ID Card until issued with a new one. Students are still able to order tuckshop without an ID Card, via Flexischools.

All Morning Tea and Lunch orders are to be ordered ONLINE via Flexischools. The Student ID Card is for breakfast, snacks and treats only. The full menu is online and we encourage parents to pre-order as much as possible to reduce queues at the tuckshop. The cut-off time for online ordering is 8:30am daily.

College APP
