Parental & Community Communication

Being the end to another Term, it is timely to remind our school community that parental and community feedback is important for Moggill State School. If you have a compliment, complaint or enquiry about an issue at MSS, the best approach is to speak directly to the school about the matter, rather than discussing it in a public forum. We encourage you to talk to your child's class teacher or a member of the Administration Team. 

While many schools use social media to update parents of school notices, MSS prefers that parents contact the school directly with a compliment, complaint or enquiry due to privacy considerations. Imagine if your doctor, accountant or banking institution tried to contact you to discuss important matters via Facebook.

A few key and important points to consider when using social media in relation to communicating school matters:

  • Before you post something online, ask yourself if the community or individual really need to know. Is it relevant, positive and helpful?
  • Remember that what you post online is a direct reflection of who you are.  People will potentially form lasting opinions of you based on what you post online.
  • Be a good role model.  If things get heated online consider logging out and taking a few moments to relax and think.  Hasty, emotive responses could inflame situations unnecessarily.

A serious instance of inappropriate online behaviour may constitute a criminal offence and become a police matter.  For example, online content may substantiate the offence of 'using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence' (Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth) s. 474.17).

Your consideration, support and understanding of the above information is greatly appreciated. Moggill State School has a strong culture of high expectations, and achieve this through the strong partnership that exists between parents, staff and students.
