Over the last few editions of the newsletter, I have been asking families to give suggestions and ideas to improve the way we share school information and news with families. I also took it to the P&C meeting, to gather ideas from parents. Thank you to all parents and community members for your feedback. Listening to the feedback and trying to ensure clear communication pathways at the school, we have decided that we will be going digital with our communication.
As I have indicated previously, we have invested a large amount of time in ensuring our Website is up to date with the latest school information. This includes our Facebook feed and news posts (reminders) from the school. It also has links to important documents for parents to peruse. The QSchools APP is linked to our school’s website. This is a free QLD government APP where you link your school to access the school website. You will receive notifications on the APP when new information is added to the website. We will be using this to share school information from now on. We will put news posts up, event details, and newsletter articles to keep families informed. If there is urgent information to share, we will send a notification that will alert you on the APP. Each month, we will create a short printed newsletter that will go home to each family as well as be loaded onto the website.
Find out more about QSchools and download the app today. As our communication will be through the website, I would encourage all families to download the app. Also, save the website as a favourite to your browser www.aramacss.eq.edu.au. Our monthly snapshot will be sent out in Week 8 but information and school happenings will be shared to the website weekly and you will see a notification on the APP.
Please come and see us at the office, if you need help downloading the APP or would like further information. I am looking forward to improving the way we share information!
Yours in education,
