Resources for Parents
Parent Communication during Online Learning (K - Year 12)
The following guide is to assist parents and carers to understand the best person to contact during Online Learning. Email is the preferred method of contact. Please note that the staff will do their best to respond in a timely manner, but we do ask for your patience.
Many parents want to help with homework but just are not sure how. The best way is not doing the work for your son but by providing the best resources to enable him to do this.
The College Library is open from 7.45am every morning during the term and a large number of boys use the Library as a place to complete homework, to research and to spend time with other boys reading magazines and books or using the computers. The Library is open at recess and all through lunch as well as after school until 4.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday afternoons. We have a qualified teacher-librarian to assist students with their questions and provide assistance with assignments and homework help.
The Library is closed when classes finish on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
As your son starts asking questons about careers guide him to a great government website that provides practical information about a vast range of careers and the personal and professional qualifications needed for different occupations. Visit: www.myfuture.edu.au
Students can also visit the Careers and Foundation Skills Adviser, Mrs Sally Wall at the College.
