Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you to everyone in the community for looking out for each other by keeping COVID restrictions in place. It appears that most students have been managing the remote learning and getting connected online without too many problems. If you have been experiencing issues with technology, there is a phone number on the Catholic Education Website. You could also send an email to your child’s classroom teacher, give the Front Office a ring or check out some of the help guides on our school website. Please be in touch when you need to during this time. .
Keep up to date with the ACT Health website to keep up with the latest news and advice. We will keep you posted as we hear any updates from Catholic Education in regard to COVID and Catholic schools.
COMPASS PARENT PORTAL IS COMING:
As you know the school began using Compass for attendance records at the beginning of Term 2. SHPS is now ready to implement another feature of Compass – the parent portal. We will send out information regarding the portal by Tuesday next week. The Compass Parent Portal is an online portal that lets you access information about your child’s school and their progress. The portal will be accessible via the web and the Compass School Manager App (via the App store on your device).
