Outlined here are the ways to keep up to date with everything that’s happening at Killara Public School. In order to be included in these communications, please register for the school’s app, called Skoolbag and provide your contact details to your class parent in the first week of the school year, as outlined below. You will also need to keep your contact details up to date with the school office.
I have a question about my child…
The first point of contact for queries relating to your child is via your class teacher. To make an appointment, please contact the school office by phone (9498 2397) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You may contact the teacher directly if an email address has been provided to parents.
Get to Know Your Class Representatives
Every class aims to have two class parent representatives who volunteer to organise and coordinate class-related activities. Their role is to provide communications between the teacher and other class parents (e.g. to organise reading group rosters, provide last minute email reminders on behalf of the teacher and organize class social functions). If you would like to be a Class Representative, please advise your class teacher at the Parent Information Night (held in the first few weeks of term 1). Once appointed, the Class Representatives will introduce themselves via email to all class parents.
All school year groups will be allocated an event/activity which is to be managed collectively by the Class Representatives across the grade. Class Representatives will call out for volunteer parents within their class to assist.
