St Paul’s College welcomes opportunities to work with parents in educating their child. The partnership between parents and the College is crucial to ensuring that each student has the best opportunity to enjoy our College experience and to learn effectively. This Parent section of our website contains a wealth of information to assist you as you interact with the College. Please see our dropdown menu item for details about the Uniform, Canteen, Technology requirements and policies.
Parents have various communication avenues when the need arises to contact the College:
The College newsletter is emailed fortnightly on Fridays and is also available through the school website. The newsletter is also available via the Schoolzine app: https://www.schoolzine.com/szapp-installation.
The College newsletter is an important means of communication between the College and home. It contains information from the different faculties and offices in the College, as well as upcoming events, notices and activities in which the students have been involved.
Parent or guardian enquiries about a student’s general progress are best directed to the Pastoral Care (PC) teacher or the appropriate Year/House Coordinator. The Year/House Coordinator is responsible for the academic and pastoral care of all students in a particular year (Years 7 and 12) or House (Years 8-11) group. Enquiries regarding specific subject areas should be directed to the student’s class teacher or the relevant Leader of Learning. The Assistant Principal, Learning & Teaching is also available to discuss a student's academic progress.
Student welfare concerns are best directed to the PC teacher or the appropriate Year/House Coordinator or the Leader of Pastoral Care (Mr Leon Robinson). Areas of concern of a more serious nature may be addressed to the Assistant Principal, Mission & Wellbeing, Mrs Bronwyn Shipton. The Principal is also available to see parents if it is judged that this is more appropriate.
