Parent teacher communication



Teachers at Lota SS are always willing to discuss student progress with parents.  In order to ensure that the teacher can provide optimal attention to the discussion, please ensure that you make an appointment by contacting the teacher for a mutually suitable time.  
We recommend that you discuss your preferred communication methods with your child’s teacher, early in the school year, so that both you and the teacher are aware of the best ways to stay in contact.
Please be assured that our staff will contact parents/carers immediately if they perceive the need to discuss you child’s progress or behaviour.
Parents/carers should feel free to contact the Principal to discuss matters of concern. Similarly, it is essential that you contact the   office to make an appointment for a mutually suitable time. It is preferable that parents should  always discuss educational matters with the relevant classroom teacher or specialist teacher before an appointment with the Principal is made.

Class Rep Program

Each class has a parent representative who volunteers their time to assist the school in building communication between the teachers, the P&C, the parents and the community. The class   representatives disseminate class information and reminders on behalf of the teachers and organise social events for their class.



The Lota SS newsletter is emailed to parents every Friday afternoon. The newsletter contains important information in regard to the activities and achievements of our school and reading it should become a regular part of your Wednesday night routine.
The newsletter is posted on the school’s website and sent to family emails as soon as practicable.

Parent-Teacher Reporting

Students receive a written report at the end of term 2 and term 4 and a verbal report at parent-teacher nights in terms 1 and 3. Our teachers also provide parents with additional opportunities to meet to discuss their child’s progress throughout the year. Further information about parent reporting is available from the school office.
