At Applecross Senior High School we believe that parents are a crucial component of the three-way partnership that maximises student learning and enhances the school experience. Parents should be comfortable contacting all staff members and should feel that they are being listened to and that their concerns are being addressed in a timely and professional manner. We encourage all teachers to make email (or Connect) contact with parents, but also encourage parents to contact teachers via email or phone. The following information is offered as a guide to contacting staff members.
At Applecross Senior High School we use various forms of electronic communications to parents. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the forms of communication and their uses.
Email is our most commonly used form of communication to parents. Please ensure the school is kept up to date with your email contact details.
Connect is an integrated online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools.
On Connect you can view:
Upon enrolment you will be sent log in details from Connect to enable access.
News, events, student achievements and workshop information etc are broadcast daily via the Applecross Senior High School Facebook page, which is used to post news stories as they occur, in place of producing a bulletin/newsletter.

Text messages are sent each morning to inform parents if a student is absent without parental notification. Messages of an urgent nature may also be sent via a text message.
Student Absentee Notifications
If your child is going to be absent from school please send a SMS by 10.00am to 0416 906 282 stating the student’s name, year, Care Group, date and reason for an absence. If a student needs to leave school during the day for an appointment, or leave school early, please send an SMS as soon as possible to the number above advising the reason for leaving early or provide a parent/guardian note explaining the reason.
How do parents find out what is happening in the school?
How do I find out who key teachers and other staff members are and make contact?
Guidelines for contact if you have concerns that a staff member has not responded to, or handled an issue appropriately.
We will do our best to ensure that your child’s educational needs are being met, and that we create a supportive, motivating and safe learning environment. However, if you feel that a concern regarding your child’s progress or learning environment has not been resolved to your satisfaction, we’d like the opportunity to investigate further to ensure that we are meeting and supporting your child’s learning needs and goals.
Who should I contact if I have a problem or concern?
Please see this Flow Chart for further information of How to Communicate with Your Child’s Teachers.
