Communications Survey

Technology has changed the way our Campuses share and connect with our community. As communications tools continually evolve, so do the communication preferences of our families.

Our Campus Parent Portals, College Website, Facebook, Campus Newsletter and SMS are now available for immediate communication to parents. To ensure we continue to meet the needs of our community, we invite you to participate in a communications survey. 

This online survey is designed to assess current forms of communication and evaluate areas for improvement.

Your input is essential and will be used to improve College and Campus efforts in strengthening the partnership with parents/carers. The survey is in electronic form. Paper copies can be supplied by request at your Campus front office. 

Thank you for providing this valuable feedback to assist us in shaping future parent communications.
