Each Monday we send out a short summary of what’s on for that week. This is sent out through Schoolzine and is also on our Facebook and Instagram.
Each fortnight on a Wednesday, we send out our school Flat Chat, a newsletter that includes events, important dates, children’s work and other items of general interest. You will receive an email alert to read the Flat Chat by email, or via our school app. It is important that you read Flat Chat to keep up-to-date with what is happening at school. Go to past issues of Flat Chat.
XUNO is our parent communication app. In XUNO you can approve and pay for excursions & fees, enter absence notes, message teachers, read student reports and view the school calendar. Please see the XUNO page on our website for further information.
Our Winter's Flat Facebook and Instagram pages are where we share snippets of school activities and other news items. (@WintersFlatPrimarySchoolCastlemaine)
The Events Calendar on the school website lists details of events at our school.
From time to time additional paper notes are sent home with the youngest child, or with all children who are involved in a particular activity or event.
At drop off and pick up times you will notice a chalkboard outside the office, which we use to share urgent, important or daily messages.
Each class has a class representative, who acts as a conduit between teacher and families. We will ask your permission to share your contact details with your class rep.
Our parent-teacher interviews are held in Term 1. These can be booked through XUNO. Written reports are sent home at the end of term 2 and term 4. Student-led conferences are held in Term 3.
We need the permission of parents/caregivers to use images of your child in communications. Download the Media Communications permissions pdf.
