Parent Resources

Listed below is information that will help you with various aspects of life at Christway College. 

Useful Information

All learning resources such as books, stationery, incursions and excursions are covered by the Resource Levy paid each year. The College provides all primary students with access to an electronic device which is for use at school only.

Secondary students are required to purchase a specified device from the College.

Additional expenses not included within the resources levy include the Grade 3-6 camps, all Secondary camps, and training costs for our sports development programs.

Kingston Campus offers a Canteen which operates on Thursdays.

Orders may be placed using the QKR app by Wednesday mornings (9.00am) and collected from the Salt Cafe on Thursday.

COMPASS is our online school information system and acts as the primary means of communication between the College and home.

Once a child commences at Christway College, parents will be able to log into the Parent Portal on COMPASS This will allow access to information such as:

  • Student attendance
  • Work tasks and results
  • Current College news and events
  • The College calendar and bookings for parent/teacher interviews

The Parent Portal is also the primary means by which the College office sends emails home to parents. COMPASS can be accessed on smartphones or tablets via the COMPASS School Manager App which can be downloaded from the App Store / Google Play Store once the Parent Portal is established.

The College encourages Parent-Teacher communication. Families are asked to maintain a positive and open relationship with the College ensuring interactions with staff are appropriate.

Communication can occur via the following ways:

  • By Email: Please go to Compass for the class teachers email address.
  • By Telephone: This can be difficult as teaching staff are not readily accessible as they are teaching. In most cases, the office staff will take a message and the teacher will return your call.
  • By SeeSaw: Parents can contact teachers directly via the SeeSaw app.

Students are to bring to school each day:

  • a drink bottle with water
  •  a piece of fruit or vegetable for ‘fruit break’
  • food for recess (light snack for first break)
  • lunch in a named lunch box to be kept in their school bags.


Please note that Lunch and a fruit for a fruit break will be eaten inside. As part of our commitment to sustainability and conservation, we are a ‘nude food’ school. This means we strongly encourage the use of lunch boxes and the avoidance of disposable packaging wherever possible.

The College has strict guidelines for the management of mobile phone usage by students. Mobile phones are not necessary during the school hours and will be confiscated for a period of time if a student is found in possession of a phone. Phones must be dropped off at the College reception upon arrival to school and can be collected at the end of the day. Electronic devices and mobile phones are not permitted on excursions or camps.

The newsletter is sent to all families each fortnight via Compass. The newsletter includes a greeting from a College leader, important dates and upcoming events and showcases student work.

Operoo is our electronic Student Health Management system. Operoo offers an electronic version of the paper-based forms that are required for school excursions, camps and enrolments. It provides parents with the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately while providing the College with instant access to emergency information. Such information might include emergency contacts, medical checklists for asthma and allergies, and insurance details.

Parents may choose to download the Operoo app to promptly update details and reduce the burden of having to fill out the same information on multiple forms throughout the year.

The information is for college use only and will be accessible by the relevant staff to provide necessary medical care in the event a child becomes ill or injured while under the care of the school.

The College has a Parents and Friends Association in which we encourage and welcome all parents to be involved. The PFA assists the College in the following ways:

  • Mothers/ Father’s day stalls
  • Harmony Day/VIP Day
  • Morning Teas
  • Fundraising
  • Election Day BBQ
  • Prayer morning
  • New family welcome morning teas
  • School Disco, and many more activities.


Please contact the College reception if you would like to be involved. A Working With Children check is required to be part of the PFA.

Students are welcome to ride their bicycles to school but must use the approved routes when on the College grounds. Students may only push their bikes when inside the school grounds. During the day, bicycles must be kept in the bicycle bay and will remain there until home time. Bicycles should be secured with a bicycle lock. Government approved helmets must be worn whilst riding any form of wheeled transport to and from the College.

The College timetable will vary depending on the class that a student belongs to. Class teachers will release the class timetable at the start of each semester. Students will be required to wear the formal College uniform or the Sports uniform on specified days.

Prep students commence their day at 8:45am and conclude at 3.15pm.

Year 1 & 2 conclude at 3:15pm.

Year 3-6 students finish at 3:25pm.

Parents/guardians who bring their child/ren to school and/or collect them by car are requested to pay particular attention to our car park rules including speed signs and directional signs.

Parents/guardians are advised to ensure that all students are supervised when walking through the car park to ensure the children are always safe.

Cars are to be parked in the parking bays only. The College car park has a number of parallel bays for quick ‘drop off and pick up’. Parents must stay in their vehicles if using these bays. Cars should not occupy this car space for more than 3 mins.

The uniform promotes pride in the college and an increase in student self-esteem as well as a sense of belonging. The uniform is attractive, long-wearing, and eliminates competitiveness in dress. The wearing of the uniform at Christway College is compulsory.

Parents/guardians of Primary students are asked to ensure that the uniform is worn correctly. Secondary students must take responsibility for this for themselves. If a student is in breach of the uniform requirements they may be excluded from attendance at College events or from participating in excursions. Wearing the correct uniform while on excursions is a matter of safety as it makes students easy to identify while in public.

Terms 1 and 4 are the official Summer uniform terms, and Terms 2 and 3 are the official Winter uniform terms. There is a two week cross-over at the beginning of Term 2 and 4, where students may wear winter or summer uniforms.

All students must wear the official sports uniform as specified when participating in PE/Sports classes and sporting events. When a student is representing the College in an external sporting event, students will be supplied with a competition uniform specified by the College i.e. cricket whites, basketball or netball uniform etc.

The College navy waterproof jacket is the only approved jacket to be worn in the colder weather. This can be worn all year round.

The official College school bag is a uniform requirement and students must have this bag. No other school/sports bags are permitted.

Swimwear must be a one-piece, modest cut of any colour for girls. Boys can wear speedo style or board shorts of any colour. Rash vests can be worn if desired.

Uniforms must be purchased from the approved supplier. Purchasing from an alternative supplier is not recommended as items are not the same colour or design and detract from our uniform as they stand out at school, on excursions and during school photos.

For Christway College Kingston:

Uniforms must be purchased from Belgravia Apparel.

For Christway College Wyndham:

Uniforms must be purchased from Rushfords Schoolwear.
