During the course of your child’s school years, you may have cause to make a complaint about an issue or concern you have with their education. The Department of Education and Training is committed to ensuring that all complaints are dealt with in a fair and equitable manner. There are processes and support networks in place to enable you and your child to work through any issues or concerns you may have.
Cybersafety and cyberbullying
The following information provides information to parents about cybersafety and cyberbullying and suggests what you could do if your child is a target, or is responsible for inappropriate behaviour.
Head lice is a complex, unappealing issue that can be stressful, disruptive and sometimes frustrating for the people involved, and expensive for families. It is often surrounded by misinformation about what is and isn’t effective by way of treatment, and misinformation about the nature of head lice themselves.
The detection and treatment of head lice is the responsibility of families. Information about the treatment for head lice can be found here.
Parent forums are held once per term.
The Parent Handbook (1040 KB) provides you with important information about school policies and procedures.
Information for parents with young children

These services are available to assist parents in accessing a variety of services to support the development of their children, especially through the early childhood years.
