Parent Partnership

Parent Partnership is a core pillar at our school. Kids do better at school when parents and teachers work together so that each child is individually known. At OCS, Parent Partnerships form the essential foundation children need to get the most out of their education Orange Christian School.

Collaborative relationships between home & school

Parents play a crucial role in their child’s learning. We believe parents know their children deeply, and that parental insight and input is vital for a well-rounded education.  

At OCS, we recognise that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. We actively establish Parent Partnerships based on mutual collaboration and two-way communication to create a harmonious, consistent learning environment where your child can flourish. Parents can support the school through voluntary participation in excursions and educational assistance, or joining the governing OCS Association.

No-one knows a child like their parents

We know that when selecting a school for their child, parents need to feel confident in that partnership. We intentionally create partnerships with parents from your child’s earliest days in Prep. Clear, open communication between home and school means we can care for your child in the best possible way. Your child’s teachers will chat with you at drop-off and pick-up, and you’ll get notes and communication through the Schoolstream app. Each child will receive a Portfolio at the end of the year, and parents can see their child’s work at any stage to keep track of their progress.

Clear, two-way communication

We have regular, open communication with Junior School parents so we can work together effectively to help you raise your child. Clear communication between home and school enables us to care for your child in the best possible way. Parent involvement in children’s learning increases a child’s sense of belonging, and improves learning outcomes. At OCS we have many opportunities for parents to be involved.

Communication to care for your child

Kids flourish when there’s a positive working relationship between home and school. Your child’s welfare is important, and clear communication between home and school enables us to care for your child in the best possible way.

Staying connected through the teen years

Clear communication between home and school is vital for anyone raising teenagers. We let parents know what’s happening through Parent Information Nights, Parent Teacher Interviews, written reports each semester and Schoolstream app. Good communication is always two-way. We value parent feedback and parent involvement in supporting students, particularly in their senior years.
