Communication @ Hambledon

Our school has a wide variety of mechanisms to communicate with our parents and community.

This flyer is an attempt to try and ensure you are aware of the many ways in which you can access information.

Urgent Matters: Please contact us via the phone 9837 3200 for matters which are urgent not via email or our Facebook. Our email and Facebook accounts are not checked consistently throughout the day.

Class Teachers: Your child's class teacher is always willing to make an appointment and discuss your child's needs throughout the year. They are the first point of contact if you need to resolve an issue regarding your child's learning, social issues, welfare or any other concerns. If you are unable to make an appointment time in person, please contact our office or send an email to hambledon-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au

Team Leaders: Our executive team are available to support you if you feel you require further support beyond the classroom teacher. The team leaders for each of our grades are:

  • Kindergarten: Mrs McNaught
  • Year 1 : Mrs Vavdinos
  • Year 2: Mr Nigl
  • Years 3&4: Mr Shaw            
  • Yaers 5&6: Miss Porter

Mrs Hosking and Mrs McEwen:

There are times you feel the need to talk to someone urgently about a welfare, learning or other important matters regarding your child. We are available to talk to you and will try to then support you in finding a solution to your concern.
