Parents and the school work in partnership to ensure that girls gain the maximum benefit from their years of secondary schooling.
Mitcham Girls High School offers many avenues for involvement and participation. We welcome and value parental involvement in their daughter's education and in the life of the school.
Enquiries are welcome at any time, as are requests to discuss your daughter's progress or concerns regarding her education.
Our newsletter is published twice a term to keep the school community informed of school activities, community events and relevant educational issues.
Communication regarding student progress takes place in an ongoing fashion through phone calls, diary notes, emails, letters and parent/teacher conferences.
Information pertaining to student progress, achievement, homework, classwork and deadlines is also communicated via Daymap. Parents can communicate with their daughter's teachers via Daymap messaging.
The Daymap Parent Portal provides up-to-date information about student progress, with reference to achievement, homework, classwork and deadlines. Read more
