Meredith Primary School uses different methods of communicating with parents about their child’s educational journey.

Assembly

Each Friday at 9.00am the whole school gathers together to celebrate the week.  Individual students are presented with weekly achievement awards and parents and friends are invited to attend and join in the celebrations.

School Newsletter

A school newsletter is published each week and distributed on Fridays.  It is extremely important for parents to read the newsletter as it is our main source of communication between families and the school.  The newsletter is sent home with the youngest student in the family. The newsletter is also available by downloading the Tiqbiz app on your smartphone. If you would prefer your newsletter emailed, please contact Belinda Gear at the office with your current email address.  The newsletter includes a Principal’s report, student achievements and activities, the school calendar as well as some local community news.

Tiqbiz

Meredith Primary School uses an app to send out messages, newsletters and notices.  For details on how to download the Tiqbiz app to your phone, tablet or computer visit the website www.tiqbiz.com.au

Reading Diary

Each child is given a diary at the beginning of the year to record the books they have read. It also serves as a great as a great 2-way communication tool between teacher and parent.

Student Reports and Parent Teacher Interviews

Two written reports are issued to parents during the year, one in June and the other in December.  Formal interviews are conducted in June, however parents are encouraged to organise an appointment with their child’s teacher to discuss their child’s progress at any time during the school year.  If any problem arises, please contact the School immediately to arrange an interview.
