Home - School Communication
This is an essential part of student success. The more parents know about what their children are doing at school, the more they can support both them and the school to ensure work and assignments are promptly and accurately completed. Our two main communication tools are the student agenda and our website. We urge parents to use these tools on a daily basis. Read more about Home - School Communication
