How we communicate

Weduc app

Throughout each term, the school will use email as its primary method of communication and will email parents about upcoming events, important information etc.

At the beginning of every Term, we will send out a Class Sway (class newsletter) and Key Dates to parents by email.

Parents can message the school, book and pay for clubs and trips, book parents evening appointments and view their child’s reports on the Arbor Parent Portal.

Parents can also visit the useful information page of the school website to view:

  • Weekly Highlights posts
  • All Class Sways
  • Key Dates
  • Gallery
  • Term Dates
  • School Uniform
  • Other useful links/information

Parents can also view a summary of what has been going on at the school on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Parent Intervention (1:1 or Group Sessions) for Child Anxiety or Child Behaviour
