Parent teacher communication


Open communication

Our teachers are dedicated professionals who endeavour to do their very best for your child. ​Please meet your child's teacher and inform him/her of any considerations for your child. Take an interest in your child's work and discuss it with the class teacher. Please make an appointment if you need to speak to the class teacher as this ensures the most effective use is made of the available time.

The department of education values members of our community communicating collaboratively and positively to ensure we come together under the motto of Your child, our student. One team. Link to Parent and Community Code of Conduct

Parent​ information night

In the first few weeks of the school year, parents/caregivers are invited to meet the teachers of their child and learn about classroom procedures, the curriculum for the year and general year level information.

This evening is not an opportunity to have a one-on-one discussion with the class teacher.


Term 1 and Term 3 - Parent interviews - oral

Parent Interviews will be scheduled at the end the Term.  Parent interviews are an integral part of building the home-school partnership to support your child's learning.  Bookings for interviews are made online via SOBS. Information will be sent out when the booking round is open. Please click here to find out how to use SOBS.

Term 2 and Term 4 - School reports - written

In accordance with departmental guidelines written reports are issued at the end of each semester. Written reports will be emailed to parents.


All classes at Algester State School, use Seesaw for students to upload work and send announcements to students and families. At the start of every year, teachers will send out an invitation for you to join Seesaw Family to view your child/ren's work. Families are encouraged to engage Seesaw Family by:

  • liking / commenting on your child/ren's work
  • talking with your child/ren about the work that they uploaded
  • extend their learning at home from what they uploaded
  • message teachers

​​Classroo​m notes

Class and information notes are written on specific topics and will go home at different times through the year. Please ensure your child understands the importance of passing these notes to you.


Parents are provided with their child's teacher's email address. The policy for use of email is that teachers will respond to the email within two working days. Any urgent communication should be forwarded through the school office. Any email enquiries can be directed to:​

Sharing inf​ormation​

Events in family life such as a major illness, visits of significant relatives, accidents, and the death of close relatives, friends or pets can cause major concern or change in the behaviour of your child. Please share this information with your child’s teacher so that they may best support your child if needed.
