It’s not buildings that make a school, it’s the community. Wesley parents and guardians are vital to the Wesley community and are diverse, welcoming and supportive.
There are many programs, events and groups that connect and support parents and guardians starting from a student’s orientation through to graduation.
New families are welcomed to the community before the first day of school. Parents, guardians and students are engaged in an extensive transition program to learn about school life, how to make the most of their time at Wesley and to meet key staff such as the Head of Campus, Head of School, pastoral care leaders and teachers.
Support and engagement
Parents and guardians access sophisticated applications and resources to connect to their child’s education experience at Wesley and to navigate the challenges and opportunities that arise through a child’s growth and development.
Wesley’s Learning Management System, WiSE, facilitates open and effective communication between students, teachers and parents. This interactive tool allows parents to track their child’s learning and progress, with live access to their child’s timetable, calendar, homework, assessments, grades and reports.
The platform and app feature a news feed that allows teachers to send targeted notices directly to your phone, keeping you up to date with what’s happening on campus.
Monday Series workshops
The Monday Series forum takes place each term. Parents, teachers and expert speakers come together to explore issues and challenges facing students. Topical subjects range from developing healthy social media habits to strategies for coping with stress.
The School TV digital wellbeing platform provides parents with advice for raising safe, happy and resilient young people. School TV includes videos from leading experts, fact sheets, recommended books, apps and websites, and other helpful resources.
Each class at Wesley has a parent or guardian class representative, who helps facilitate communication with teachers and key staff members to engage, inform and support fellow parents and guardians.
Parents associations support many events organised throughout the year as well as a wide range of social activities. These include Mother’s and Father’s Day breakfasts, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, concerts, sports days, breakfasts and coffee mornings, lunches, fundraisers, social interest groups and workshops.
