Dear Parents/Guardians,

On Firday 21st October the school will be holding a Pajama Day for all year levels. Each student will come to school dressed in their PJ’s.

Care Monkey

Last week Steve wrote about Care Monkey and how we are going to begin using it at Moriac Primary School. We will be trialling it during the remainder of the year for different excursions with the aim for full implementation in 2017.

Below is the information that was sent out last week.

CareMonkey automatically keeps medical and emergency details up to date for any organisation with a duty of care. It makes these important details instantly available to teachers (in school or on camps, excursions) in an emergency…so they know who to call, what to do, or what to tell an ambulance paramedic. CareMonkey automates the permission and consent form process too so parents and carers can complete permission forms via their smart phones or on their home computer. It’s used by schools, universities, in sport, in HR, scouts, church and youth groups, the disability sector and camps.

Moriac parents and carers will receive an email invitation to sign up to CareMonkey. You then complete the information about your children and share with the school (as you currently do annually via paper copy). You will be asked to provide up to date medical and emergency contact information on your children. This is secured using the same privacy protocols that the school currently utilises with paper medical documents. At a later time, you may choose to share this information with the football or netball club or scout groups. That’s your decision alone. The school shares with no-one except relevant medical personnel in the event of an injury on excursions or at school, as is the case in all schools.

CareMonkey will also provide parents/carers with the ability to give permission for children to attend excursions etc via their smartphone or computer. You will receive a notification that a permission form is waiting your attention. You can go on to CareMonkey and read the details of the event and give secure permission straight away. It will also send you reminders if you haven’t responded after a few days. This will eliminate the unhappy scenario where students miss excursions due to lack of permission from parents.

I urge you to go to the CareMonkey website http://www.caremonkey.com/and scroll down and watch the short video that explains the program. I also urge you to accept the email invitation. The school believes this updated information sharing process will take the hassle out of communication for school and home and strengthen that partnership.

Please note paper forms will continue to be available on request.
