Communication

Communication between the school and home plays an important role in the ongoing education of our students. We encourage our parents and teachers to keep in contact regularly to ensure your child’s progress is monitored and that essential support is provided.

Successful delivery of information relies on up-to-date email and telephone details. Please inform the school if your contact details need updating:. Email balga.shs@education.wa.edu.au or complete the Update Information online form.

Balga Senior High School uses a variety of methods to communicate important information to both parent and students:

  • Facebook
    ‘Like Us’ on Facebook to keep updated with important information, latest events and our students and staff achievements.
  • SMS
    SMS messages are utilised to advise parents of unexplained Late and Absences from school. At times we may also message parents to convey vital information or reminders.
  • Connect
    The Department of Education system ‘Connect’ is a web and app-based portal which is a great way for students and parents/guardians to access school reports, course information, homework links, valuable curriculum resources and important notices from teachers. All parents and guardians are rolled into Connect and receive an automatic registration email containing login details when they enrol at the school. If you do not have your login details for Connect please make contact with the school office staff.
  • Newsletter
    Balgazette newsletter is issued by email once per term and is also available on the website. The newsleter contains information about educational activities and events, student and staff achievements, excursions, visitors to the school, P&C updates and other relevant school information. At the end of the year, we highlight our best moments, from across the year, in an electronic (pdf) magazine. Hard copies of the Balgazette will be available at the Administration Office for anyone who would like a printed version.
  • Parent Information Evenings
    At various times throughout the year, Balga Senior High School conducts Parent Information Evenings. These sessions are used to convey important information which may be relating to Course Selections, Specialist Programs and Senior School.
  • Formal Report
    At the end of each semester, the school will issue a formal report for all students meeting the standards required outlined in the School Curriculum and Standards Authority’s  Teaching Assessment and Reporting Policy. Students will also be issued with an interim report in Term 1 prior to the Parent Interview evening.
