From the Assistant Principal

We have had a wonderful year at St Thomas and I am sure, like all of us, you are looking forward to spending some precious time with family and friends over the holidays. Thanks to you all for your kind wishes and support throughout the year. I would like to wish you all a joyous and blessed Christmas.

The transition to Compass, although bumpy at times, is nearing completion. Commencing Term 1 2020 we will no longer be using schoolstream. A reminder that Compass is a web-based system that is best accessed on a computer or ipad. If using a phone it is important to keep your app up to date at all times, as we continue to work to resolve issues as they arise. As I have mentioned previously phones particularly androids are still having some formatting issues so where possible if you can check on an alternate device. I am always happy to receive feedback on Compass.

Exploring Compass:-

  • There are a number of key documents and forms that are on Compass under School Documentation.
  • You can also always access the Compass parent handbook under the school favourites.

2020 Year 1 to 6 MAI assessment interview times will be booked through Compass this year. However, these times will not become available until mid to late January. The school has only been provided one day for testing this year (Tuesday 28 January) so times will be limited. If your child misses out on securing a time slot during the testing day they will be assessed by their class teacher during the first couple of days of school (Thursday/Friday 30-31 January).
