Our community

Kuraby Special School values our parents as true partners in their child’s education. Communication with parents is seen as vital to the success of each student’s program.

Close communication is maintained between staff and parents and carers through:

  • Communication books…a message book that travels between home and school each day
  • Telephones…every classroom has a telephone, however unless it is an emergency, we request parents only ring before or after school to minimise class disruptions. Messages will be taken by the school office and teachers will return phone calls during their breaks. Techers will endeavour to communicate with parents either via phone or by personal meeting at least once per term to review student educational progress.
  • Emails...parents can contact the school by email at admin@kurabyspecs.eq.edu.au . Personal emails will be forwarded through to your child’s class teacher. Explanation for student absence may also be passed on to staff via email.
  • Meetings... are held with the teacher and /or therapists to discuss individual student’s programs and progress and to set programming goals through the ICP. Parents are encouraged to visit the school to participate in school assemblies, parent meeting and parent education sessions. Please make a suitable time to meet with your child’s classroom teacher. Skilled interpreters can be booked to assist parents who do not speak English as their first language.

  • School newsletters…a newsletter is sent home every Monday fortnight to keep parents informed of activities and other news of importance to the whole school. A date claimer is available on this newsletter. Other information which may be of interest to parents is published using our school Face Book site.
