Appointments with Staff

Parents are encouraged to maintain regular contact with class/home group teachers. It is preferable to make an appointment to see staff who may be contacted via email with direct email information available via the Directory on the Parent Portal. If urgent, please phone the office on (07) 3814 8300 where reception may be able to put you in touch with the staff member. If staff are unavailable to speak with you, please leave a message and they will endeavour to return your call as soon as possible. 

Permission Forms

On many occasions during your child’s schooling, there will be opportunities for excursions away from the College. A school excursion or camp is a learning experience designed to motivate students and provide first-hand experiences which could not otherwise be provided in the classroom or on campus. School excursions and camps are an important part of our curriculum and are regarded as compulsory. Appropriately planned and supervised camps and excursions assist greatly in the students’ understanding of the community in which they live. Permission forms will be sent via email by EdSmart (Parent Slips) - these will generally be sent to both parents/carers where communication is permitted.
