Hero is our school's Student Management System and it allows us to create a secure online environment that enables teachers, students, and families to communicate, stay informed and view and share content. Hero allows you to read and comment on posts relating to your child, view information on your child’s progress and goals, read and respond to school notices, view term dates and the school calendar, notify the school if your child is absent or late. Details on how to register for the App can be found below:
