College Communication

​​​​​​​​​​​Parents and community members play a crucial role in their children's education and a strong partnership between parents and schools enriches the learning experience.

At St. Francis College, we keep parents and caregivers informed through various ways:

  • St. Francis College Newsletter: This newsletter is sent out every two weeks through SWAY. You'll receive an email on Fridays with a link to read it and stay ​updated on what's happening at the College.

  • BCE Parent Portal: You'll get access to the BCE Parent Portal when you enrol with us, and we provide Parent Portal Guidelines to help you use it.

  • BCE Connect Mobile App: This app is a convenient way to access school and student information securely. It helps you stay engaged and informed about our school. It integrates with our website, Parent Portal, social media, and Google Maps.

  • SMS Messages: We send SMS messages when your child is absent or late to school, and you haven't notified us. This helps ensure all students are accounted for daily. Messages are sent to the main contact parent, but we can send them to both if needed.

  • St Francis College Facebook Page: We share the amazing things happening at our school on our Facebook page. We also have different groups associated with our page that you can join, Friends of St FrancisSFC Career PathwaysSFC Uniform Buy/Swap/SellSt Francis Community Hub and SFC Alumni.

Media Consent

When we use students' images on our website and social media, we check their Media Consent status which you provide upon enrolment. There are three types of consent you can choose from when enrolling your child:

  • Your School Community (Limited Consent)
  • Public (Broad Consent)
  • None (No Consent)

We encourage parents/legal guardians to complete the Media Consent Form during enrolment by selecting one of these options.
