The College’s primary means of communication is via the College’s intranet, which is known as Manresa
. It is essential students and parents familiarise themselves with Manresa
; and access it regularly as it stores so much relevant material for both curricula and co-curricular activities and events.
The College will provide all parents with unique login details prior to the commencement of Term I, 2020.
The Gonzagan – Weekly Newsletter
Each week the College publishes a newsletter detailing what has happened at the College that week and advising of dates for special events that will be occurring such as Family Masses, Book Week etc. The newsletter is emailed to all parents on a Friday. Copies of the newsletter are also available through Manresa.
Each student will receive a College diary on the first day of Term I. All major dates are in the diary as well as general information. The diary is designed to help students organise their homework and study time. In it they must keep the details of all homework.
The College diary is the prime means of contact within the College between teachers, it is also the primary contact between teacher and parents and records all absences, late arrivals etc. Parents are requested to review their son’s diary and sign it each week.
The diary must be with students at all times when in the College and must be produced when it is requested.
Daily Notices - Aloys' Daily
Throughout the Junior School there are display screens which provide daily student news for all year levels. These may also communicate last minute training changes. The digital displays are referred to as Aloy's Daily. It is important that your son checks the bulletin boards on a daily basis so he is aware of what is happening.
Phone Messages for Students
Phone messages for students should be for matters of great importance only. Students are allowed to use the College phone located at reception in case of emergency.
It is a Junior School requirement that personal mobile phones are not to be used during school hours and boys must hand their phones into their Classroom Teacher every morning for safekeeping and collect these at the end of each day. In the event that a student needs to call their parents, there is a telephone located on the front reception desk for student use upon request.
