Once your family joins the Kristin community, you can expect to receive communications and interact with the school in several ways.
Kristin Community Portal
Kristin’s internal information hub where students, parents/caregivers and staff log-in to access more detailed information about everyday life at Kristin. For example, this is where students will register for sports and other co-curricular opportunities, where a parent with a Junior School child can access relevant resources, where all parents can notify the school of their children’s absences, check on their child’s academic progress or order school lunches etc. This portal also allows for the communication of notices/information to relevant groups via forums and notifications.
A Kristin family can expect to receive emails from their child’s teachers, Dean, Principal and other relevant staff from time to time regarding curriculum expectations, school trips/events, fundraising campaigns etc. Our very active Kristin Family & Friends (KFF) team also send an update email each term about up and coming KFF events and activities.
A digital newsletter providing a regular summary update on things that have taken place or are coming up around school is emailed to all current families fortnightly on a Friday during term time.
Kristin produces our school magazine ‘Kaleidoscope’ mid-year for distribution to current families. The content in this magazine covers our most significant successes and stories from January–June. This is followed up by a Yearbook focused on showcasing the milestones, student achievements and activities etc for the whole school year and is generally distributed the following January.
We highly recommend following our school’s social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to keep abreast of exciting news and event information, and potentially engage with other community members. We also have a Vimeo page showcasing an array of school videos that have been created over the last few years, and a LinkedIn page to enable appropriate networking. Other dedicated social media pages also exist for Alumni and KFF (our parent group).
