Communication @ St Joachim's

At St Joachim’s we believe in the importance of communication between home and school and we have a number of platforms that we use. 

Administration of Medication at School

Occasionally students will be required to take medication while at school. All medications are administered in our first aid room (with the exception of asthma medication which is kept with the student). 

Parents must fill in the Medical Authority Form  form and bring it to the school office with the medication clearly named / labeled by the pharmicist.  Medication cannot be brought to school by a child with the exception of asthma medication.

Please refer to the Medical Management Policy St Joachim's.

School Attendance Guidelines

From the end of Term 2 2018, all Victorian government schools must contact parents/carers as soon as practicable on the same-day of an unexplained student absence. 

The same-day notification requirement supports the safety and wellbeing of all students. Schools need to know when and why a child is absent and parents/carers need to know if their child is not at school. Absence Notifications.

Same-Day Notification of Unexplained Student Absences - Audiri App

Parents and carers have an obligation to notify the school of their child’s absence as soon as possible on the day of absence using the school’s communication  app - Audiri which is downloadable from the Apps stores for both iPhone and Android phones.

Audiri App

Our school uses the Audiri App to help us communicate more effectively with our Parent community. This type of notification does not usually require a response from parents (as Operoo does).

We ask parents to install our Audiri School App which is easily obtainable from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Once installed, just search for our school name “St Joachim's Primary School”. 

Absence Notifications on Audiri App

Absence notifications are sent to the school via the Audiri App. These notifications are seen by the classroom teacher, and the office staff who manage the daily roll. 

Parents and carers have an obligation to notify the school of their child’s absence as soon as possible on the day of absence - preferably before 8:30am.

Other messages such as early pick up, can also be sent using the Absence notifications form of the Audiri App.

Here’s a video on how to send absence notifications.

If you're having trouble with your Audiri App on your phone, it may need to be deleted and the latest version installed. Families and staff are telling us that this has fixed any Audiri issues that they have been having.


A uniform dress code reinforces in students a pride in their own appearance, instils recognition of themselves as an integral part of the school community, and assists in developing pride in representing their school.  Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Dress Code.
