Our Parents Community
At Birralee, our Parents' Community is an integrated part of who we are and there is a strong sense of community between our parents. Our Parents Committee organise many activities to make new parents feel welcome.

Who are our Parents?
All our parents value education and are engaged in their child's schooling.
Our parents work in a variety of fields and organisations across the city. Many of our parents are connected to the research community in Trondheim.
Cooperating with Parents
We believe that the relationship between home and school is critical in building a successful partnership. We have several tools in place to communicate with parents regularly:
Weekly Class Plan: Your primary source of information which includes up-to-date information on school activities, events, practical issues and more.
Parents’ Newsletters: Monthly newsletters from the Principal
School Reports: Academic Reports and Assessments are shared regularly by your child's teachers
Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences: You will meet with your child's teachers twice per year to discuss your child's academic and social progress.
Digital Platforms: Birralee uses Seesaw, a private, personal student-driven digital portfolio that allows parents to see their child’s work and celebrate their progress.
Entry and Exit Points: visit the classroom and join us in celebrating your child's progress during your child's Entry and Exit Points.
Through our social media channels, we endeavour to make the most of every opportunity to celebrate your child’s learning.
Our parents organise many activities to make new parents feel welcome.
There is a strong sense of community among our parents.
