Current Families

We're so glad you're part of the Regent Family!

We acknowledge that it can be difficult to navigate the different communication platforms, particularly given the administrative overload of modern life. Our main parent interface for administrative matters is Parent Lounge. We also use SeeSaw and are commencing Microsoft Teams to support face to face learning for students. Newsletters are sent to your email and can be accessed via Parent Lounge. Class Parent Reps use Signal Messenger for sharing of class specific information and supports. Currently, our food orders are completed through the Lunchbox School Portal

Acknowledge

On Parent Lounge, Families are able to acknowledge excursion and incursions.

Although parents provide annual consent for their child to attend excursions at the start of the year, the College still requires permission for the majority of excursions/events that go off-site and any incursions that have an elevated-risk element.  This ensures that parents are aware of the event, and provides the opportunity to verify their child’s medical details before the event date. 

Public Calendar

Log into Parent Lounge for the full school calendar.

Allied Health Providers

At Regent College we partner with the following providers to support students. Please note that the Speech Pathologist and Occupational Therapist are private clinicians and not directly employed by the College. Regent College does receive any monetary benefit/commission from the provision of these services.

Speech Pathology

Students have access to a speech pathologist who holds clinics on the school grounds. The speech pathologist conducts initial screening assessments which are included in school fees. Further  assessments, reports and/or therapy carried out incur private fees. The speech pathologist’s contact details are forwarded to families at the start of each year. 

Refer to Speech Pathology Australia for further information about the role of a speech pathologist.

School Nurse

The school nurse performs routine vision and hearing checks for children aged 4-6 years in Kindergarten and Pre-primary. Parents will be notified when this will occur. Throughout the year, teachers or parents may request a review of vision and hearing from the school nurse if there is a concern. It is expected that vaccinations are up to date prior to the commencement of Kindergarten.

 

Occupational Therapy (OT)

Students have access to an occupational therapist who holds clinics on the school grounds. Initial screening tests are included in school fees however further assessments, reports and/or therapy incur private costs. The occupational therapist’s contact details are forwarded to families at the start of each school year. 

Refer to Occupational Therapy Australia for further information about the role of an Occupational Therapy.

Canteen

Due to the Regent College Building Project, our canteen is currently unavailable.

We look forward to opening the canteen by mid-2022.

Currently, the College will be offering food delivery services each Tuesday and Friday during term except for the last Friday of Term 4.
Food delivery will not be available on Friday 10th December 2021.

Food will be provided by Lunch Box and can be ordered in advance online via the platform “School Portal”.

Parent Involvement

At Regent College we encourage parents and families to be involved as much as possible, and endeavour to provide opportunities after hours for those parents who work during the day.

Parents and families can be involved in many ways, including:

All parents and families will be asked to read and complete a Volunteer Declaration prior to serving.

Parental Visits During School Hours

Parents may be visiting during school hours to assist in their child’s classroom, attend an excursion, or to collect their child for an appointment. For all these scenarios, we ask that Parents please first visit the College Administration and sign in using the visitor management system tablet.

Parents are not required to sign in when:

  • Attending assembly
  • Picking their child up the end of the school day
  • Attending a promoted event (eg Graduation Ceremony)
  • Attending an outside school hours event (College Concert at Riverview Church)

Transport and Parking

Arriving at Regent College safely

Kiss and Drive
The most efficient way of dropping your child to school and collecting after school. More information below.

Parking
There is street parking available in the streets surrounding the college (mostly time limited). 

Public Transport
Transperth Bus Routes 72 and 75 stop on Geddes St after Horden St (Stop No: 11741). Click here for bus routes.

Walking & Cycling
If you can, get to school early, park without stress and walk to school with your child while feeling virtuous.

Car-Pooling
Is a terrific way to reduce parking and traffic stress; also, a great way to develop school community relationships.

Kiss and Drive

School drop off and pick up

Morning – Drop Off:
All students: 8:05am – 8:30am

Afternoon – Pick Up
Kindergarten & Pre-Primary: 2:50pm – 3:00pm
Pre-Primary – Year 6: 3:00pm – 3:25pm
Delaying pick up (Years 1-6) until between 3:15pm – 3:25pm helps with traffic flow. 

Kiss and Drive runs along Hordern Street.
There is clear marking on the road to help navigate.

Cars should NOT queue for Kiss and Drive along Hordern Street SOUTH of Geddes St to avoid intersection congestion.

  • No parking in the designated Kiss and Drive zone before school (between 7:30-9:00am) and after school (between 2:30-4:00pm). If a car is left attended during these times, you are likely to receive a parking infringement from the Ton of Victoria Park.

     

  • Pull vehicle right up to the front of the Kiss and Drive queue before unbuckling children from seats. Do not permit students to enter or exit the vehicle from the back of the queue; it slows down the process and can be unsafe.

     

  • Parents must not get out of their vehicles for any reason. If support is required, remain in the car queue and wind down your passenger window when you approach the front. A staff member will provide support.

     

  • Kindergarten/Pre-primary students will be assisted by staff members, and older students should be fully independent (but will be supervised).

     

  • Students must exit and enter the vehicle from the school side of the vehicle – never independently on the traffic side. This may require booster seats to be shifted to the left side of the vehicle.

     

  • Parents must not park their car on the opposite side of the road to Kiss and Drive and then walk students across the road; to drop-off, or collect.

     

  • Use of the student/family name dashboard signs (will be provided to new families early Term 1) to help staff to prepare for pick up.  It really does help.

     

  • Do not send friends or relatives unannounced to collect students from Kiss and Drive. The College must be informed in advance concerning any new ‘collectors’ with details, including ID provided.

     

  • Please do not use mobile phones while driving or queuing in Kiss and Drive – as is the Law. 

Children under the age of 7 years old are not legally permitted to occupy the front passenger seat of a vehicle (unless all rear seats are occupied by younger children). Kidsafe recommends however that children should not sit in the front seat until 12 years old (particularly when the vehicle is fitted with an airbag). 

Correctly fitted child car restraints are required for children under 7 years old who have not outgrown the height marker on the car restraint. Over 7 years old, children are recommended to remain in the booster until they physically outgrow it. Refer to Kidsafe (Western Australia) website for more information.

Uniform

Wearing the College uniform correctly is a condition of enrolment and fosters a sense of belonging for students

Parents are requested to check that their child is dressed correctly in the College uniform each day, ensuring that all components are neat and in good order.

If a student digresses from the College uniform, the student will receive a verbal reminder and a Uniform Infringement notification will be sent home by the classroom teacher. Please treat this as a gentle reminder but it is a genuine request that any incorrect components are to be addressed.

Wearing the College uniform is a condition of enrolment.

Opening Hours

The College Uniform Shop opening hours during the school term are:
Wednesday morning – 8:3am to 10:30am
Wednesday afternoon – 2:00pm to 3:00pm
