Welcome to Trafalgar High School

 

From the Principals Desk 

 Volume 15, 22nd May

This week I would like to bring parent/guardians attention to a new app that has been launched this week by the Department of Education and Training. The app “SchoolMate” is freely available as a download. The app aims to support parents in their understanding of the content, knowledge and understanding in regards to their students learning. There is information available from Prep right through to Year 10 and covers 11 of the Key Learning Domains. This is an initiative to allow easier accessibility in regards to information for parents. So please take the time to check this out.

The Compass system that Trafalgar High School has adopted in the last two years is one conduit to assist with improved communication between home and school. We will be continuing to include different functions as time progresses to ensure there is one interface that is commonly used by all those in the Trafalgar High School community. Our next stage in the process will involve the uploading of reports. We are hoping to have this available for the distribution of reports at the end of Term 2.

With last week being National Volunteer Week, we take the opportunity to recognise our volunteers, in addition to the article in this weeks newsletter, I would personally like to thank all those volunteers from Trafalgar High School and the Trafalgar community for all the work they do with our students.
