The College collects personal information, including sensitive information about students and parents/guardians before and during the student’s enrolment at the College. The primary purpose of collecting this information is to enable the College to provide education for your child.
Some of the information we collect is to satisfy the College’s legal obligations.
Certain laws governing or relating to the operation of the College require that certain information be collected.
Health information about students is sensitive information within the terms of the Privacy Act 1998. We ask you to provide medical reports about students from time to time.
From time to time the College may disclose personal and sensitive information to others such as other schools, government departments, medical practitioners, and people providing services to the College, for administrative and educational purposes.
If we do not obtain your personal information we may not be able to enrol or continue the enrolment of your child.
Personal information collected from students is regularly disclosed to their parents/guardians. On occasions information such as academic and sporting achievements, student activities and other news and photos are published in College newsletters, magazines, yearbooks, website, advertising and other promotional materials. If you do not agree with this you must advise us in writing immediately.
Parents may seek access to personal information collected about them and their child by writing to the Principal. Students may seek access to their own personal information. There will be occasions access is denied, such as where access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others or result in a breach of the College’s duty of care to the student or where students have provided information in confidence.
The College engages in fundraising activities from time to time. Information received from you may be used to make an appeal to you or disclosed to organisations that assist the College’s fundraising, solely for that purpose. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes, without your consent.
We may include your contact details in a class list or College directory. If you do not agree with this you must advise us in writing immediately.
If you provide the College with the personal information of others, we encourage you to inform them that you are disclosing that information to the College and that they can access that information if they wish and that the College does not usually disclose that information to third parties.
