Helpful Information for Parents

Edumate Parent Portal

The portal has a range of useful information for parents regarding the progress, behaviour and attendance of their child at school. Edumate is also where all important medical and carer information is stored. 

All parents are provided with login details for Edumate and it is essential that every parent logs in to the portal to ensure all contact and emergency information about your child is accurate and up-to-date.

Absences

1. If your child is absent* please call the School Office on 8459 4200. On return to school complete a signed Absence Note and drop it off at Student Reception

Or

2. Email here with student name, class and reason for absence.

*The Education Act 1990 requires you to ensure your child attends school each day that instruction is provided unless they are prevented from doing so by sickness or other acceptable reason, and for you to provide an explanation for any absence. The Act requires you to explain your child’s absences within seven days of the occurrence. Failure to do so will result in an unjustified absence being recorded. Please provide an explanation by email or using the appropriate form and return to the School Office as soon as possible. If you have any concerns that our records are incorrect, please contact the school immediately. 

Please see our Student Attendance Policy for more details.

Extended leave

If you are planning to take more than 5 days for a family holiday then an Application for Extended Leave - Travel Form needs to be completed. 

Lateness

Junior School - students go straight to their class when they arrive.

Secondary School - students go to Student Reception to sign in with a Late Note or a parent. They will be given a printout to take to their teacher. 

Leaving Early

Junior School - please advise Class Teacher.

Secondary School - Students must sign out at Student Reception and have a signed note or parent present. Alternatively, a parent can email admin@covenant.nsw.edu.au with student name, year and reason for leaving early.

Messages to Students

Call the School Office on 8459 4200. Let the Office staff know:

  • Name of child 
  • Year Group or Class 
  • Your message 

The Office team will endeavour to pass on the message to your child. Naturally this depends on sport, excursions and changes to location of classes. Messages should be received by 2.30pm Monday to Thursday and by 1.45pm on Friday.

Sick Bay

Students must seek permission from a teacher to present to Sick Bay. If the Nurse decides the student needs to go home parents will be contacted by the school. The student will need to be signed out of school by the Nurse. Students should not SMS or call parents directly to pick them up.

Student illness

The school asks parents not to send their child to school when they are infectious. In particular, NSW Health guidelines are that children be kept home until 48 hours after their last symptoms of gastroenteritis. This greatly helps us to stop the spread of infection and protect other students and staff. 

Where to Park

Parents can park in Dell St, Waldon Rd or Bundaleer St. 

Senior students can park in Waldon Road. 

Visitors can use the four dedicated Visitor parking spots in the top car park (at the end of Dell St). 

Visitors coming onto the school grounds, including parents helping at school (e.g. canteen, Cafe Covie, class reading groups), must sign-in at the School Office and wear the printout ID label.

Incorrect Uniforms

Junior School - students should give a note from a parent to their Teacher.

Secondary School - students should visit the Deputy Principal Pastoral Care before school, ideally with a note from a parent, to be given a one-day uniform pass.
