 Parent Communication and Reports

Xavier Catholic College is committed to ensuring parents/guardians stay informed and engaged in their child/children’s learning.  A decision was made in 2015 that all academic reports from Semester One, 2016 will be provided to families in an electronic format.

Semester One reports will only be made available via the ‘Academic Reports’ option in the Parent Portal.

Reports will be available in a PDF format and will, for all intents and purposes, reflect the format of previous hard copy reports.  The delivery of the reports electronically will remove the problems associated with hard copies being lost or damaged in the post.  It also means that families will have access to reports at any time they are needed.

Whilst the College understands that exceptional circumstance may necessitate parents/guardians to request a hard copy, in the main, hard copy reports will not be issued. Exceptional circumstances would, for example, be where an original signature on the report is required.  Any requests for hard copy reports should be emailed to with the student’s name and reason for the request.

Whilst receiving reports electronically will be a new process for some families, many should already be familiar with the use of the Parent Portal for other administrative processes, such as booking parent-teacher-student interviews, updating personal details, medical details and reporting student absences.

Xavier Catholic College is one of many schools across Queensland transitioning to electronic forms of communication.  The Parent Portal provides parents/guardians with discrete information about each student’s progress.  Administration staff have been assisting and communicating with parents/guardians from the commencement of this year to ensure accessing the Parent Portal is an easy, streamlined process.

The Parent Portal provides access to college administration and information about your child such as:

•    Student academic reports – access to electronic copies (PDF) of all academic school reports – view, download and save for future.

•    A summary of NAPLAN results.

•    Timetable – view your son/daughter's timetable.

•    Contact us – email any of your son/daughter's teachers.

•    Attendances – see all absence events/notify absences.

•    Booking parent-teacher-student interviews – offered in March and July.

•    View important dates on the college calendar.

•    View weekly newsletters.

•    Update personal information – email, phone number, address.

The Parent Portal will support our partnership with you in the day to day management of the education and development of your son/daughter and will become the primary means of communication between school and home.  We are confident in time all parents/guardians will see the value in having all these aspects of communication incorporated in one ‘easy to use’ application.
