COMMUNICATING WITH NIHS
At Norwood International High School we value our partnerships with families and recognise that these positive connections support students to flourish in their learning. Research clearly demonstrates that when schools and families work collaboratively to support young people, their level of success is enhanced as is their well-being.
We maintain that effective communication and sharing of information is essential for successful partnerships and have a number of ways to facilitate this process.
Parents are encouraged to contact teachers, Learning Community Leaders (LCL), Learning Area Leaders or Support Services over any issues of concern. If staff are unavailable at the time, they will return calls as soon as convenient.
The school number is 8364 2299.
As staff often need to contact parents by phone, up-to-date contact details are essential. Please email Student Services if any contact details change firstname.lastname@example.org

If a student is going to be absent or late please send an SMS to 0429 608 617 with the student’s name, year level and reason for absence.
