Forms of Communication

As one of the largest schools in Australia, it is important to ensure we have effective methods of communicating with our parents and families.

We do this through multiple platforms to ensure that everyone in the community has the ability to stay up to date with what is happening at our wonderful college.

Email

Email is the most frequently used communication tool within Varsity College and allows the college to provide parents with a variety of information, in detail if needed.

Specifically for our classroom teachers, email is used to enhance the wellbeing and learning opportunities of each and every student and ensure parents are aware of what is happening in class.

The College also emails home important information such as parent-teacher interview details, report cards and event invitations for Awards Evenings and other time-critical college information.
​​
In 2020, Varsity College launched our own interactive digital news platform, Varsity Life. The launch of Varsity Life enables us to celebrate the wonderful work of our teachers and students, as we share their successes with readers in real-time, in a way that promotes community interaction, collaboration, and pride.

Text Message

The College engages the use of text message or SMS for two main purposes. The first is to manage absenteeism with parents/carers receiving a text message if their child is absent for the roll mark class. Please note, this only occurs if it is an unexplained absence; parents/carers who have followed the absentee process shouldn't receive an SMS.

The second reason the college may send out an SMS is in the case of a hazardous situation (fire, threat, flooding, etc) or something specific to the school (renovations) to ensure all parents are aware of what is happening.

Please note that during an evacuation the college staff will use the Varsity College app to communicate with parents: this is the only communication platform staff can remotely access.
