Alinjarra Primary School uses an SMS Communication Service to communicate unexplained absences to parent/guardians’ mobile phones. It is a legal requirement that parents contact the school regarding any student absences or reasons for lateness. This can be done via a phone call, in writing, or by sending a SMS to 0409 682921 with child’s name/reason/date. Unexplained absences are followed up.
The P & C Association works with the school staff to provide improved resources for the children. In past years they have raised money to air-cool all of the classrooms in the school and to assist in the provision of shade cover for playground equipment. To assist with other commitments, the P & C members have decided to ask for a contribution from all families as follows:
1 child $15.00 per year 2 or more children $30.00 per year
This money goes towards library books and other specific needs identified within the school each year.
The school operates a Direct Deposit Payment Option. Details are: Commonwealth Bank BSB – 066167 ACCOUNT – 10430385 Please put your child’s name as a reference. Credit Card and EFTPOS facilities are also available at the front office.
The P&C meet in the school Staff Room on a Tuesday evening during Week 2 and Week 8 of each school term. The meetings commence at 7.00 p.m. and usually last approximately one hour.
It is important that we have as many parents as possible attending meetings so that your opinion on various matters can be heard and discussed.
