Absence Notification

Parents must advise the schools of all student absences via the Student Absence form. You can also scan the QR code to access the form. For detailed information regarding the School’s Absence guidelines and expectations, please refer to the Parent Information Booklet below.

Lunch Orders

Lunches are provided by an outside supplier, KingWill Catering who are based at Sacred Heart Primary School, Newport.  A variety of tasty, healthy and homemade options are available. In 2023 the lunches will be offered on a Wednesday only, commencing Feb 8.  You must order by 8am on the day (but preferably on Tuesday) using the Qkr! App.  Any queries, please contact Jo or Nicole via email or 0402 781 496.  In the interests of promoting environmentally-sustainable practices, students must bring their own cutlery from home.  Disposable cutlery is not supplied by the caterer or the school.

Medication

It is preferred that parents administer medication to their children before or after school. However, when children occasionally require medication to be administered whilst at school, we are required to comply with Medication Policy Procedures.  A Medication Authority Form must be completed and signed by the parent prior to any medication being administered. All medication sent to school must be labelled, in its original packaging and brought directly to the office – refer to detailed instructions on the form. All students requiring medication will be supervised by office staff or First Aid Officer. Staff cannot administer any medication to children without written permission. Please print out and complete the TWO page form at right:

Parent Information Booklet

Parents & Friends

The Parents and Friends Association (P&F) provides a network for parents to participate in activities and decision making processes at Queen of Peace Parish Primary School. It works to benefit our children, the school and our community by

  • supporting the school with social activities to help build community spirit
  • helping the school financially by raising funds for specific/general purposes
  • members helping to organise the school maintenance
  • other roles and duties as the needs arise

Meetings are held once a term, on a Monday evening at 7pm. Dates are advertised in the school newsletter and the school’s google Community Calendar. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend the hybrid meetings (you can attend on site or online via googlemeet).

If you are interested to find out more about the QoP P&F, you can download and read the Guidelines.

If you would like to contact the P&F Executive Committee, please send an email to: pandf@qopaltonameadows.catholic.edu.au

General Meetings

The P&F holds General Meetings, chaired by the President or Vice-President, who are supported by a Secretary, Treasurer, Fundraising Coordinator, Social & Pastoral Coordinator and Gardens & Maintenance Coordinator. Each of these Executive Committee Members, and all Ordinary Members, have the opportunity to attend the meetings and report on and/or discuss any pertinent issues.

Please note that all parents and carers at QoP are automatically Ordinary Members of the P&F and your ideas, thoughts and opinions are valued. P&F meetings are a great forum to have an open, honest and considerate discussion between parents, carers and the leadership of the School.

Come along and meet some friends you haven’t met yet!  You will also get the chance to have a chat to the Principal and the Executive Committee.

School Interviews

schoolinterviews.com.au is a simple, convenient and secure system for booking appointments for events such 3-Way Conversations or Literacy testing at the start of the school year.  This replaces Parent Teacher Online (PTO), previously used by the school.

Student School Reports

School Reports are issued twice a year (at the end of semester 1 and 2).  They are available for parents to view and download via the nForma portal.  The school will notify parents when they are ready to view.

Families who are new to the school will receive an email from nForma with instructions on how to create an account, when their child’s first school report is available. It is an automated email containing login details and instructions and will come from no-reply@nforma.com.au, not the school. Please ensure that you check your junk/spam folder for an email from that address. You MUST use a computer or laptop to access your child’s reports for the first time. Subsequent logins can be made on a mobile device e.g. phone or iPad.  If you forget your login, please search your emails using keyword: nForma.  If you forget your password you can click ‘Forgotten Password?’ to create a new one.

Uniform

All children who attend Queen of Peace are required to wear the approved school uniform appropriately. This includes on the way to and from school. The uniform should be worn neatly as it is an indication of pride in the school. Please refer to the School Uniform Policy.

Orders for Queen of Peace Uniform may be placed online via QuickCliq, or click on ‘Order Online’ button.  Enquiries should be directed to uniform@qopaltonameadows.catholic.edu.au   For returns or exchanges (within three months) items must be unworn and tag still attached. Copy of receipt also required.  Please leave items with school office.

Queen of Peace is a SunSmart school and all children are required to wear school hats (sunglasses are now optional) in term one and four.
