School photographs are scheduled to be taken by advancedlife. As a school all ordering will need to be completed online to reduce administration and potential security issues related to the return of cash and envelopes on photo day.

Orders for packages and sibling photographs can be placed securely online at www.advancedlife.com.au using our school’s unique 9 digit advancedorder code. Portrait and group package orders are due by photography day.

Should you wish to purchase a sibling photograph online, the order must be placed no later than the day before photography day. Sibling photographs will only be taken if an order has been placed.

Should you have any queries concerning school photographs or online ordering, please contact us at www.advancedlife.com.au/contact

School Directory deadline is Friday!

Just a quick reminder to provide your details for the School Directory if you would like your family to be included (participation is voluntary but encouraged). All fields are optional, you can choose how much information you wish to share.

I have one of the longest surnames at the school and I managed to touch-type my answers on a mobile phone in less than two minutes. Don’t put it off – do it right now!

The School Directory has no relationship to the green forms that were recently sent home – that information is collected for official school purposes, whereas this information is volunteered by families for social purposes.

Deadline for submissions is this Friday 19th February.

Please make your submission by clicking here.

In case you missed the previous summary in the newsletter, Holy Trinity P&F manages the online School Directory through the app "Directory Spot".

For those new to our community, the School Directory contains class lists and family contact information that can be used for organising playdates, birthday parties, sport, or social activities for the children of our community. Only parents/guardians from Holy Trinity are given log-in access to view the School Directory information - it is not in the public domain.

No details in this directory are to be used for any unsolicited purposes and unauthorised use, including for commercial purposes, is strictly prohibited and will result in user access being revoked.

As with every year it is up to each individual family if they chose to be in the directory.

If you have any questions, please email htpsschooldirectory@gmail.com
