Supporting your child's education

At Wagaman we welcome parents to support their child’s education in a variety of ways. There are many opportunities to participate and volunteer to help out in both classrooms and whole school projects like the Mayuma Garden. 

School Council

School Council meets monthly and becoming a member of it is a great opportunity for parents to have input into the governance of the school. The AGM is held in Feb/March each year so please keep an eye on the newsletter for the specific date. At this meeting school council is formed and executive officers are elected.

For more information regarding school council please refer to the fact sheet

Communication

We encourage open communication between parents and teachers. Our teachers are always happy to talk with parents about their child. We do ask parents to be mindful however that during lesson time teachers are focused on students and it is difficult for them to engage in conversation. Parents are always welcome to make an appointment to meet with teachers at a mutually convenient time. We utilise a number of methods to communicate with our parents:

Skoolbag

Skoolbag is a great way to receive newsletters and alerts about what is happening at school. The Wagaman Skoolbag App can be downloaded from the Apple App store or the Android Play store

Further information about downloading Skoolbag.

Newsletters

School newsletters are sent out every second week through Skoolbag and emailed to parents. 

Class newsletters are sent out from class teachers in the first two weeks of each term.

Seesaw

Classes use seesaw to show case their learning and share it with parents in real time. Teachers also use it to communicate with parents. You can download the app for both IOS and Android. Teachers will send out a code for you to connect to your child’s seesaw.
