communications with current families
Scots All Saints College values two-way, interactive communications with parents and our college community which is enhance through online tools as well as face to face forums. Assemblies, teacher-parent interaction, parent involvement in the classroom e.g. Reading groups for Junior students will be part of daily school life.
Other ways the College engages with the community includes:
eNewsletters – The College community can expect to receive weekly eNewsletters, titled ‘The Roar’ on a Thursday with a focus on what’s coming up for the week ahead. While student achievements will be highlighted, other channels will be used to support these messages. Key information will include a Headmaster’s report, regular reports from the School Directors, upcoming events and news items from students and the Parents and Friends association.
Year book – a new annual publication will be produced to celebrate the highlights and achievements throughout the College year.
