FREE Talking Drugs information session

Parents, teachers and school staff have a crucial role to play in the prevention of young people’s risk of harm from alcohol and other drugs.

SDERA are hosting a FREE Talking Drugs information session to help parents understand the role they play in school drug education. Parents will expand their knowledge of drugs including methamphetamine, and explore ways to speak with their children about alcohol and other drugs.

Parents will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel which will include the Principal and representatives from local agencies such as North Metro Community Alcohol and Drug Service (CADS) and Youth Futures.

Date: Tuesday 10 October

Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm

Connect Application – Streamlining Parent Communications

STREAMLINING PARENT COMMUNICATIONS THROUGH CONNECT

Connect is an easy, secure way to communicate electronically with teachers. Teachers at Governor Stirling Senior High School are using Connect to update parents on classroom activities including photos and learning resources as well as provide a personal view of your child/ren work, assessments, feedback and attendance.

Our school leaders and teachers are using Connect to streamline whole-school communications to parents including:

  • class calendars
  • week by week attendance information
  • assessment outlines, information drawn from reporting to parents; and
  • sending out reminders and alerts.

How to access Connect?

Parents will be given their own secure login to Connect through the school upon submission of registration. This will be a P-number as a user name and a starting password that you can change.

To register for a Connect login, you can down load a registration form: Connect-Application-Form.pdf or collect one through our front office administration. All forms must be completed and returned to the school in person or by scanned and emailing to: GovernorStirling.shs@education.wa.edu.au.

We hope that you enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way to stay in touch with your child’s school journey at Governor Stirling Senior High School.

Proposed School Fence

I am pleased to announce Governor Stirling Senior High School has gained limited funding for the installation of a security fence around the perimeter of the school buildings.

This fence will improve staff and student safety. It will also discourage the antisocial behaviour that has resulted in high levels of vandalism.

A visual representation of the fence style is displayed in the image below along with the attached proposed fence line map for commenting.

Comments need to be in writing to the school Principal including your contact details to allow for follow up. Comments can be returned in person via the main entrance letter box or alternatively you can email your response to the school at: GovernorStirling.SHS@education.wa.edu.au
