SJV are continually working hard to successfully communicate with our school community.  Below are ways that we currently communicate.


The SJV Website is where information is shared for SJV famililies and the community. It is an upto date useful communication tool to see what events are occuring, understand the curriculum, find newsletters and much more.


We have had a fantastic response to our Facebook page with over 500 followers. Facebook is a means for the school to showcase the wonderful events and activities taking place within the school and the community. Facebook is also being used to send helpful reminders to families and send messages.

Schoolzine App

The school will use the Schoolzine app (SZapp) to easily communicate between the school and families.  The app has links to relevant parent information found on our webpage, including the newsletter and has access to forms to communicate back to the school.  The Schoolzine App is also used to send alerts to parents/carers when quick or short information needs to be sent.  Ensure you select the correct notifications, including your childs class when registering on SZapp. 


Emails to parents are often the main source of overall communication, from both the front office and the classroom teachers.  Please ensure that the front office is aware of any change in email address.

A digital portfolio for a parent or carer to see what your child is learning at school.  If you do not have access to your childs portfolio please contact their teacher.
