HOW CAN I STAY IN THE LOOP?
Here’s how to be that parent in the know!
Over recent years, the Windsor State School P&C has spent time in conjunction with school administration developing the best communication strategy possible for parents. We have looked to embrace new and paperless technologies which we utilise in our everyday lives. Our goals are to inform you, inspire you and to generally make communication seamless.
Here are the communication channels Windsor State School uses, both within the P&C and school administration. You may be a new parent, or maybe you’re a current parent who’s wondering, “what am I supposed to be taking notice of?” Here’s a breakdown of the channels we use to help you stay in the loop.
P&C websiteFor overarching information on P&C activities, as well as official policy and procedure we wish to direct our parents to this P&C website. We hope the menu is easy to navigate and that both new and current parents alike can find the information they need quickly. Our website links with our school calendar and provides a place for general information on events, meetings and procedures. It’s where you’ll find all the P&C forms and documents you need as well. Last but certainly not least, it's also the place you can go to find out what volunteer work we might need, via our jobs board.
School websiteAre you looking for information on classroom activities, school policy or forms? The Windsor State School website is the go-to place for classroom-led information and education policy. You can also download the QSchools App, for handy school information.
Schoolzine – emails and newslettersThe P&C helped to implement an electronic communication system through the education-department approved Schoolzine. This allows both P&C and school administration to communicate directly to you about current and important information.
To help you stay up to date, you should download the Schoolzine app This gives you everything you need at the touch of a button from your phone. Get the latest school newsletter and archives, email notices in a single feed, contact numbers, calendar dates, access to Munch Monitor and more.
