Interpreter service

Parents and carers who don't speak English well and deaf parents and carers who use sign language can get assistance from the telephone interpreter service. An interpreter can be requested for school matters involving your children such as enrolment, subject choice, educational progress, attendance, welfare or behavior. Interpreters can also be requested for parent-teacher interviews, school meetings, school council meetings, and parents and citizens meetings.

The telephone number to call is 131 450. Ask for an interpreter for the required language and the interpreter will call our school and stay on the line to assist you with your conversation. You will not be charged for this service. Parents and carers who need an interpreter to attend a school meeting should let us know.
