As indicated in this week's newsletter, the Darlington Primary School Council is conducting a survey to gauge parents' opinions of the school, its operations and the service that it provides for the students. The survey is of the National School Opinion Surveys that schools are required to administer at least every two years and follows the mandated format.
Feedback from the survey will be used to inform the School Council's decision-making and planning for the 2018 school year.
All parents are urged to respond to the survey, which may be accessed anonymously via this link https://www.schoolsurvey.edu.au/s/YcMmpnJc
The survey will be open until 26th January 2018.

“ Skoolbag” - School to Parent Communication
At Darlington, we are always looking to improve our communication with parents and the wider community.
Skoolbag is something we have been using at school for a couple of years to send out correspondence to our families. This app has been very popular with our parents. If you are new to the school or have not yet used this app, it is worth checking out.
This is a Mobile App that communicates directly with iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows Phones devices, that provides schools with an easy way to tell parents/carers everything they need to know.
After installation, parents can view the school’s newsletters and other documents, as well as receive ‘push notifications’. Alternatively, Skoolbag has a ‘communication centre’ on the Darlington Primary Website Homepage. Everything that is shown on the app, can be found within the communication centre.
The school is located on a beautiful three-hectare site in the heart of the Darlington village, in the hills east of Perth. In 2012, the school celebrated its Centenary and maintains a long and strong tradition of providing quality education for children from the local area. It is not uncommon for current students to have followed their parents and grandparents in attending the school.
