Annual Parent Opinion Survey 2019

Truganina College is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training (DET) that is conducted amongst a sample of the school community.

Families are randomly selected and invited to participate in this survey. Results will be used to inform and direct our future school planning and improvement. All responses to the survey are anonymous.

Families that have been selected have been emailed a link to access the survey. I ask you to please take the time to complete the survey as your opinions are important to us and will contribute to the future management and organisation of our school.

It is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of parents’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour and student engagement. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

This year the Parent Opinion Survey will be conducted from Monday 22nd July to Sunday 11th August.

The survey will be conducted  online, only takes 10-15 minutes to complete.

The online survey will be available in a range of languages other than English including: Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Chin (hakha), Hindi, Japanese, Somali, Turkish, Punjabi and Greek.

clk2sell App

clk2sell app is a fast way for parents to buy and sell second hand uniforms.

In 2014, State Schools’ Relief launched clk2sell – a smartphone solution to buy and sell second-hand school uniforms. With the new term and season change, it’s a great time to upload and sell those unwanted uniform items.

Close to 100 schools are now using the app – saving time and money. State Schools’ Relief is encouraging more schools and parents to get on board to reap the benefits. “Parents have saved 50-70 per cent”, said State Schools’ Relief CEO, Stephen Isles.

By being able to purchase uniforms at a reduced price children can wear the appropriate uniform and in turn gain the confidence to attend school without feeling embarrassed.

Hear about how the clk2sell app works and the benefits experienced by parents and schools already using the app. Watch the clk2sell video.

Outside School Hours Care

We are proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our outside of school hours care program. 

To help families prepare for the new school year, bookings for Outside School Hours Care are now open for 2019.

So that Camp Australia can care for all students, they do recommend that families register an account with them and always book in advance. 

Why register? To attend the care of Camp Australia, parents/guardians must register their child by completing an online enrolment form via the parent portal. It’s very important that parents/guardians fill out all compulsory enrolment documentation for their child and notify Camp Australia of any medical conditions, illnesses and other, to ensure the health and safety of all children in their care.

To find out more about the program at our school, including hours of operation, fees and how to register, please click the link below.

Statement on Insurance at School

The Department of Education and Training (DET) does not provide personal accident insurance for students. Parents/guardians of students who do not have student accident insurance are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs. Parents/guardians can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers. Personal property is sometimes brought to school by students, staff and visitors. This can include, but is not limited to mobile phones, electronic games, calculators, toys, musical instruments, sporting equipment, and cars parked on school premises. The Department of Education and Training does not hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property. It is probably wise for valuable items to be left at home. For further information, please contact DET Central Staff member: Jane Wilhelm at wilhelm.jane.j@edumail.vic.gov.au or phone 9637 2509.
