COMMUNICATION TOOLS

West Lakes Shore School prioritises effective communication between the school and parents by employing various tools to facilitate dialogue. Through platforms including Sentral, EdSmart, SeeSaw, this website and our Facebook social media channel we are working towards providing transparent and accessible methods for parents to stay informed and engage in meaningful conversations about their child's education and wellbeing.

EdSmart

EdSmart is an online tool used to capture parent permissions and responses for a range of student activities, send information to the whole school, like newsletters, and classroom/year level specific information.

It's quick and easy and it means no more crumpled paper at the bottom of your child's school bag.

When we have a consent form for you to complete, in most cases we will send it to you via an EdSmart email.

You simply click the link in the email and complete and sign the form digitally from your phone or computer.

It works for excursions and activities that have a fee too. You can pay via the BPoint link when you complete the form.

Occasionally we may have to send paper forms home when there are multiple consent forms that may need to be completed like Year 6 Aquatics or Swimming Lessons.

  • When you are required to complete an EdSmart form you will receive an email from "West Lakes Shore School - forms@edsmart.com.au" (please check your junk/spam folder if you don't see any in your inbox in the next few days).
  • There is a link within the email that provides access to the form.
  • You are not required to login
  • Complete and sign the form digitally through your phone or laptop and click submit.
