Communication to Parents

Communication: School to home

We have a range of communication platforms to ensure that our families are as up to date as possible with the all the news and events from our very busy school!

Facebook is the way Tambrey Primary School communicates all of our good news stories! Keeping you up to date with events and exciting news as it happens. Follow our page to keep up to date.

Seesaw is information directly from your child’s classroom. News, events, learning, information, reminders and photos. For families with multiple children at the school, this is a central location for all their journals and an easy way to communicate important directly with their classroom teachers. Watch the video below for details on how to download the Seesaw app, connect with your child’s classroom and add more than one child to your existing account.

School Star is an application (app) that can be used by parents to receive messages and news from the school, reply to messages the school has sent and send messages to the school. We will use this to send information to targeted groups of people to limit the amount of messages sent to all families ie Camp information or Interschool Carnival information.

Communication: Home to school

Tambrey Primary School staff are always willing to discuss any aspect of your child’s education. At Tambrey Primary School we have implemented an easy process to best address the needs of parents and their children. 


All communication should follow the stages of having contact in the following order: 

1. Classroom Teacher 
2. If not resolved, contact the office to arrange a meeting with a Deputy Principal 
3. If still not resolved contact the office to arrange a meeting with the Principal 

Please ensure that you speak with the teacher either before or after school as they have classes during school hours. A meeting time can be arranged with the class teacher and must be arranged if communication reaches discussions with either the Deputy or Principal. 

Telephone: (08) 9186 7400 


Absence from school

SMS: 0409 290 652 (this number does not receive calls, only text messages) 

To report an absence please send a message through school star, sms or call the front office. If your child is absent without notification you will receive a message requesting the reason for absence. 

If your child arrives at school after 8:20am they must come to the office for a late note otherwise they will be marked absent for the day.
