Parent teacher communication

WebPartZone1_1
PublishingPageContent
Parents and community members play an important role in education and a strong partnership between parents and schools enriches the learning experience for students.
Research shows that children do better in school when parents communicate regularly with teachers and become involved in the education of their children. There are a number of ways that parents can make contact with classroom teachers and be more involved with the school community. 

Direct contact with classroom teachers

Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teachers to discuss any issues and concerns, to check on assessment and progress or to simply make contact. A convenient way to do this is to use this list of teacher email addresses to make direct contact with each teacher.

Parent-teacher nights

Parent-teacher nights are a formal opportunity to meet in person and have a conversation with each of your child's teachers. Interviews are an opportunity to find out about your child’s progress both academically and socially, set future goals, discuss social aspects of school and put plans in place for continued success. Parent involvement in education is a powerful force and interviews are important for ALL children, regardless of their academic, extra-curricular or social achievements. Southport State High School hosts parent-teacher nights mid tern 1 and early term 3. 

Reports on student performance

All schools are required to provide parents with a written report on their child's performance at least twice a year.  At Southport State High School we provide three written report cards for each student and they are produced at the end of term 1, semester 1 and semester 2.

Newsletters

Our newsletter is designed to inform parents, caregivers and the community about school activities, developments and initiatives and it is published at approximately two weekly intervals throughout the year. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, email office@southportshs.eq.edu.au requesting this. You can also view all current and archived newsletters online.

Mobile App

Our new look mobile app is now available for download from both the Apple Store and the Google Play store.

Our School's app gives parents, students and community members access to information and notices, conveniently from their mobile devices.

One of the main features of the Southport State High app is our instant notifications, giving parents and the community a direct link to important updates.

Users can tailor their experience, choosing what notifications they wish to receive. For example, if your child is in Year 7, you can choose to receive only Whole School and Year 7 information on the app.
