Sentral Parent Portal
Mid 2017 we launched at new Parent Portal via the Sentral platform. Each family has a log in to access information about their child/ren. The portal allows families easy access to academic reports, opportunity to communicate with their child/ren's teachers and the ability to notify the school of absences. As we move forward all newsletters, reminders and notices will be sent out via the Portal electronically.
Parents are encouraged to stay up to date with school events by signing up for the free app, Flexibuzz. This app works across all platforms with all operating systems. Please download it to your device and search for Footscray North Primary School. Then just select a group that reflects your child's grade level. Many reminders will be sent out this way.
Our Facebook page is another great way to stay up to date with what is going on around the school. If you are a Facebook user, please like our page to receive our posts.
Mailing (email) list
Families are encouraged to sign up to our mailing list on the home page of this website. This way you will receive updates when the website content has been updated, and our regular newsletter can be sent this way.

Our school community is a fantastic one. There are many ways family members can become involved in school life. We have regular events throughout the year that have an educational focus such as 'Meet the Teacher', Parent/Teacher Interviews, School Concert and our Art Show (to name a few).
Some parents choose to volunteer their time to assist as a classroom helper and become involved in supporting events run by the fundraising team. We also have more formal parental involvement through our School Council, where parents are elected for a term of two years, also serving on one of the Sub-Committees (Education or Buildings and Grounds). We have an active Fundraising team, who coordinate a calendar of events throughout the year. Currently the money that is being raised will be put towards the upgrade of the canteen area. The KidsMatter Action Team, also forms another core group parents can join to support the school in the work delivered through our Kids Matters Framework. The contributions of parents and family members to all these programs are integral to the success of our school.
