Parent Information


Our school introduced SEESAW - Student Driven Digital Portfolios - we are continuing to build on this for the future. Seesaw is our primary method of communication for sending notices and information home. Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning, it gives families an immediate and personalised window into their child's school day and makes communication with teachers seamless.
