As part of the school’s efforts to effectively communicate with our community we use the Kismet Park Primary School Compass app. Key features of Compass include:
• A prompt and efficient way for you to keep up to date with life at Kismet Park
• Absentee Note - you can enter an absence for your child directly from your device, rather than calling the school
• No more ‘lost’ notes in the bottom of a schoolbag. You will be able to find notes and permission slips on the App.
• You can approve and pay for excursions electronically, creating a digital trail of payment
• Book parent-teacher conferences
• Direct access to the school newsletter
• Electronic copy of your child’s school report
• View of the school calendar
To install this free app, search Compass School Manager in your App Store and Google Play. Compass log in details will be sent home at the beginning of the year.
Seesaw is an invaluable tool that the classroom teachers use at Kismet Park. Seesaw supports communication of student learning between the classroom and home and it gives families an immediate window into their child’s school day and makes communication with teachers seamless. It is a direct communication link from the parents to the teacher, and the teacher to the parents during school hours. It is can be used to share information, work samples, student videos and photos of your child’s learning. We also use this as a digital portfolio of your child’s learning each year.
Seesaw is available for free from the App Store and Google Play. It is private and secure. Student parent participation in Seesaw communication is dependent on permission being given through the signing of the Kismet Park Acceptable User agreement. Parents cannot access Seesaw without a code, which will be provided by the classroom teacher in term 1.
Our iNnewsletter goes out to the community every fortnight. A message will be sent through on Compass with a link to our most recent newsletter edition which provides families with upcoming dates and general information.
Our facebook page is located at www.facebook.com/kismetparkps. We regularly update facebook with school announcements, upcoming events and important date reminders.
