 College Newsletter

The Newsletter is a weekly source of information about the College accessible on Compass on Tuesdays. Spare hard copies of the Newsletter can be picked up from the General Office. 

 Parent Information Evenings

Parents of Junior School students can expect to be invited to an information evening in the first few weeks of Term 1 where parents and teachers can discuss general aspects of the Junior School curriculum.

 College Council

College Council is responsible for determining the general educational policy of the College within guidelines issued by the Department of Education (DET).  Our Council includes parents, students, staff and co-opted members who have a special interest in the education program of the College.  Council meets monthly.  It has a number of committees that focus on Finance, Policy and Curriculum, Buildings and Grounds, School and Community and Mirimbah Country Centre.  These meetings are open to the College community and dates are noted in the Newsletter.

 Reports on Student Progress

Parents are provided two written reports during the year which are accessible via Compass.  If needed, a hard copy can be provided.  Parents are also invited to two Parent-Teacher interview sessions.  Reports are published via Compass:
