Ways we communicate

At Matangi School, we continue to refine our forms of communication. If you need to get a message to your child’s teacher, we ask that you contact the teacher/s of your children via email.

EMAIL – If we receive an email from a parent, we will often respond to this either by replying to it via email or by calling the parent or caregiver as soon as we can. We prefer to follow up on emails with a phone call; this is often the most efficient and relatable way to resolve any issues or concerns.

FACEBOOK – Our school community often celebrates special moments that occur in our school via this platform. During Lockdown, we use this way of communicating or sending important announcements, as many of our families regularly use this application.

HERO – Hero will be used to share your child’s learning. Via this Application, you will be able to let us know if your child is going to be absent from school, keep updated on notices that are being delivered in the school, link to our school website and school calendar, and have links to your school financial accounts, for stationary and fees.
