As you are aware, this year we have a school wide focus on enhancing our communication
across the school. An important part of achieving this goal has been to provide our parent
community with access to consistent forms of communication, using some more engaging
and contemporary platforms. So far, this has included:
Updating the School Newsletter to the SWAY platform
Merging the previous version of the School Website to BCE's new SharePoint platform
Developing a School Twitter Account @StThom_CampHill (We are up to 111
Continued use of Parent Slips platform for managing permissions
Use of the SMS platform
Use of Class Blogs to share Term Overviews and other class related information and
Our next focus to enhance our communication is to more effectively promote our weekly
Wednesday Assembly to our parent community. Each Wednesday afternoon at 2:05pm,
our whole school gathers in the Noble Tree Centre to celebrate Faith and Learning. This is a
special time in the life of our school where we take time to come together in reflection and
celebration....and our parents are always invited and welcome to attend!
To help promote, celebrate and recognise student achievement at our assembly, we will
commence publishing to parents, prior to the assembly, the names of those
students receiving an award that week. The published information will be shared with
parents each Monday morning via the Parent Portal, and will not only include the names of
the students receiving an award, but also provide other information, including the
designated class leading prayer for that week.
We hope that by publishing this information each Monday morning, that some parents may
be able to make themselves available to attend to celebrate their child's achievement.
Shhhhhh..we are still wanting the students to be surprised when their name is called out to
receive an award!
