Parents

Being an Auburn High School parent

Triangle_edited-1Parents are an essential part of the Auburn High School community—and a vital part of the triangle of learning (students–school–home).

There are lots of exciting and interesting ways you can get involved to support your child/children and the school.

We encourage parents, guardians and caregivers to see us as genuinely approachable and responsive and we value your interaction with us at Auburn High School.

Please contact your child’s teachers or his/her Year Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.

This section provides information on how you can get involved with the school and useful information for parents.

Getting involved

There are many ways that you can get involved such as:

  • Joining the School Council
  • Joining the Parents Association
  • Volunteering some time to help with an activity, a sports activity or at the uniform shop — even if you can only help every now and then, from home or after hours
  • Attending, supporting and enjoying the activities and events organised by the Association

You can join the school council and play a role in the governance of the school and/or join the newly formed
Parents Association. Both are great ways to meet other parents, students and staff whilst also helping to make the school a better place for everyone.

Useful information for parents

Keep in touch

Parents/Guardians are an essential part of the student-school-home triangle for successful learning.

We aim to keep parents and guardians up to date with what is happening at the school in various ways:

Concerned?

Parents/guardians are welcome to contact the relevant classroom teacher with any concerns about class work, homework or how your child is progressing in a particular subject. Parents are encouraged to email their child’s tutor group teacher through Compass with any queries.

The Year Coordinators and Assistant Coordinators can be contacted to discuss other concerns.

Parent–teacher interviews and reports:

Student reports are published on Parent Portal. Interim Reports are available near the end of Term 1 and Term 3. Detailed subject/semester reports are available at the end of Term 2 and Term 4.

Formal parent–teacher interviews will take place following the distribution of Interim Reports in March and September.
