We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.
At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Concord, we ensure parents are regularly updated on school events, procedures and student learning. Our main source of communication is through the Compass app where parents receive regular notifications on student attendance, student reports and school information such as newsletters and notes. Our private school Twitter page is another useful way to connect parents with the day to day learning of our students. Through the Twitter application parents can view photos of school events, excursions and learning in the classroom as it is occurring. Parents and visitors are also very welcome to visit our school office staff if they require assistance, more information or wish to book an appointment with the class teacher.
As a school community, we gather every Monday and Friday morning to pray and celebrate students receiving merit achievement awards. Each class also presents a class assembly piece fortnightly to the school community showcasing their learning.
