As Term 4 is coming to an end, and in order to assist the College maintain accurate student attendance records, parents/caregivers are requested to log into Compass regularly and attend to the following matters:

  • Check for any unexplained absences for your daughter/s.
  • If necessary, add an Attendance note for each absence.
  • Should your daughter be late to school due to attending an appointment, parents/caregivers are requested to add an Attendance Note.
  • If your daughter is absent for the whole day, an Attendance Note – stating the reason, needs to be entered by a parent/caregiver. If this is done at the beginning of the school day parents/caregivers will not receive an SMS.

Internet Safe Education- Brett Lee 

 

 Brett Lee presented to our Year 10 students on Thursday 1 December on the importance of internet safe education. Brett also presented to parents and carers from both Bethany College and Kogarah Marist College in the evening. His message was to show parents that it is not about devices or programs, it is about applying their physical world mindsets and skills to their children’s online world. The  parents and carers were given strategies to help take control of technology, set rules and boundaries in their home and work hand in hand with teachers and educators.

I thank the parents and carers who were able to attend the  presentation and hope that it was a worthwhile and valuable presentation.

The 5 key messages and actions for technology that Brett recommends are as follows:

  1. Communicate with your kids
  2. Set clear rules and boundaries
  3. Stay up to date with apps and programs
  4. Consider and use parental controls
  5. Be the one who makes the final decisions
