At Queenscliff Primary School we value open communication between our school, parents and the wider community to foster positive and supportive relationships. We aim to provide our families with ongoing communication about curriculum programs, events and excursions/incursions so that the relationship between home and school is seamless and we can work together to nurture and support your child to thrive.


Compass is our primary method of communication with families. Important notices, updates, newsletters, permission forms and payments are made through the Compass App. All families are required to have the Compass App to ensure they receive ongoing and active communication from our school.
