Forming a Partnership
At Wodonga Primary, we encourage our families to work in partnership with the school. When school and home work together, students develop a more positive attitude towards learning and are motivated, energetic learners. We have an ‘open door policy’ which means that you are welcome to pop into the classroom and support the program that is happening.
In the best practice for Child Safety, it is imperative that all volunteers/visitors at the school, sign-in at the office prior to attending the classroom or activity. You must present a current Working With Children's card and sign our Code of Conduct before any voluntary work can commence.
Our school uses the Compass School Manager to keep parents informed and up-to-date with school activities and information.
This program also provides opportunities to communicate school events, absences and student progress/reports.
You can access the program via a FREE Download from your App Store by searching for Compass School Manager
The App supports our endeavours to digitalise information to parents and aligns with reducing the impact on the environment.
School reports are only provided on the App.
An e-Newsletter is sent out each Monday via Compass and is also loaded on our Website's News page. The newsletter is an effective way of communicating between the school and parents, informing the school community of any activities and important dates to note. The e-Newsletter is supplemented by information provided on Compass, the Website & Facebook pages.
Our school Facebook Page is an instant contact for parents. It is updated regularly with reminders and photos of school activities.

Wodonga Primary believes student saving is a great way to promote awareness of budgets and expenditure for students of any age.

Familarisation meetings are held in the first weeks of school to establish a link between teacher and home. It’s an opportunity to briefly share information about your child with their new classroom teacher.
It’s also an ideal time to update any medical / contact details with the office team as we head into a new school year. Wodonga PS will send home specific information around the familarisation meetings.
