If you wish to meet with the teacher or communicate information, you can send an email directly to the classroom email. To send an email use the person’s first name or the class name plus “………@pi.wa.edu.au” (as an example firstname.lastname@example.org).
The communication book outside the classroom is for messages about changes in the pickup or drop off routine only. You will also receive fortnightly updates from your child’s Director.
The College communicates primarily via email, so please ensure you have set your email system to accept communications from the College so that they do not end up in your junk or spam folder.
