At Greenhills, we believe that families and the school are education partners. We recognise that the best educational experiences for children will occur when there is open communication, mutual trust and respect between the school and the home. Children whose parents and carers actively participate in the school, or who are involved with their education at home, are more successful at school.
There are many ways to get involved with the school, including helping in the classroom, the canteen or the library, regular working bees, fundraisers such as bake sales, sausage sizzles and the bi-annual school fete, the Parents' Association, the School Council and many more. Keep an eye on the school newsletter and school announcements for all the details.
All school helpers are required to have completed the 2023 OHS Volunteer Induction which includes showing a valid Working with Children Check.
Greenhills uses the Compass parent portal to communicate with families about every aspect of school life, including:
Permissions and payments for school activities
Assessment and homework
School documents & resources
Messages and absence notifications
Parent/Carer Meet the Teacher
To use Compass, you will need to create an account. Contact the school first to request a family access code.
If you already have a Greenhills Compass account, you can log in here.
The Compass portal can also be accessed through a smart phone app.
If you have questions about Compass, please contact the school.
Parents, grandparents and carers are a vital part of the Greenhills Primary School community, providing vital support both inside and outside the classroom.
