Parent Info

Compass

Compass is a school management platform which we commenced implementing at Yarra Road in 2018. Compass offers many features and is a great communication tool used across many schools.

 

Logging into Compass

Compass is a web-based system that is accessible from any modern web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari) or by using the Compass iOS app or Android app which we highly encourage our families to download.

Each family receives a separate login to Compass which will be provided to you upon commencement at Yarra Road Primary School. By regularly logging in to Compass you will be kept well informed about what is happening at Yarra Road including information specific to your child.

Compass Parent Portal will enable you to:

  • Access your child’s Student Progress and Semester Reports
  • Book your Parent/Student/Teacher conferences
  • View up-to-date class and school attendance information
  • Approve or enter upcoming or past absences for your child
  • Download, print and consent upcoming excursions
  • Pay school charges and contributions
  • Update your registered email and mobile number (used for SMS alerts)
  • Access information regarding upcoming events and news

For Compass Support please email the school at yarra.road.ps@education.vic.gov.au

After School Basketball

Yarra Road Primary plays a major role in the After School Basketball Competition run by the Kilsyth Basketball Association. Our program begins in Year 1 and runs all the way through to Year 6; most years we have around 20 boys and girls teams in total. All games are played at Lilydale or Kilsyth Stadium on weeknights between 4:30pm and 6:30pm.

Playing for the Yarra Road Basketball Club is a great way for students to learn how to play basketball and develop their skills, fitness and coordination in a fun and safe environment with their friends. It is a great lead in to other sporting opportunities and teaches the players good sportsmanship, respect and resilience.

The Roy Beale Medallion is awarded to students who play continuously from Year 1 through to Year 6 and is a highly sought after award.

To view the After School Basketball fixture please head over to the Kilsyth Basketball Stadium website, we have left the link below for your convenience.
