Parent to School Communication

Most parent’s questions are easily and completely addressed by communicating directly with the educational professional most closely involved. To resolve any issue or concern, please first attempt to communicate with the staff member most closely related to the situation. This individual is most closely involved and will be best suited to first address your issue and will ensure the most timely resolution to a situation. Contact details are available on our school website.

Our school expects staff to respond to emails within 72 hours, however, all staff will try to respond within 24 hours. Most staff have a teaching load and are not always available. If email is not appropriate or the matter is a safety concern or risk, please call the school to make an appointment. It is not appropriate to communicate via Facebook.

If, after corresponding with the appropriate staff member you require further assistance, please contact the appropriate office (Head of Learning Area, Lower School Years 7 – 9 or Senior School Years 10 – 12) to make an appointment to discuss your issue or concern. Constructive communication is always the key to solving any problem.

When contacting Lesmurdie Senior High School please note the school is divided into two sub schools; Lower School – Years 7-9 and Senior School – Years 10-12. The Coordinator, Manager and Deputy Principal you contact depends on your child’s year group.
