How We Communicate

At Southland Girls’ High School, we value open and clear communication between home and school.

SGHS Website

Our website contains any information you may be looking for in regards to SGHS: bus routes, stationery lists, term dates, curriculum information and sports news are just some of the information that can be accessed here.


EDGE App/Parent Portal

The Edge App or Parent Portal is available for legal guardians of students.

As parents/caregivers, you can access the information about your child’s learning at SGHS, including their school reports when published.

Parents/caregivers can view the balance of your child’s school account in the Edge App/portal.

We also use the Edge App/Portal for school-wide announcements and for posting the daily Student Notices

Social Media

Instagram is used as a focus on student life at SGHS. Updated each day we take you inside the red doors and show you what student life really looks like. Click HERE to access our Instagram page.

Friday Flyer

The Friday Flyer is sent every two weeks and provides a snapshot of upcoming events, key dates and reminders are also included. It is available to view via the Edge App, and SGHS website and is emailed out each fortnight to parents/caregivers. Click HERE to view our Friday Flyers.

Direct Email

We will email various notices and updates via the school email system. Email addresses need to be kept up to date at all times by contacting Student Services. Please check your emails regularly.

Text Messaging

When required the school will text the legal guardians of our students for any important or urgent school-wide announcements.

We recommend you keep Student Services up to date with your most recent mobile phone number if it has changed recently.

I understand that playing sport is an opportunity for me to learn, practice skills, and gain attitudes and values in an environment outside of the school.  I realise that this requires me to take on genuine responsibility for my own enjoyment and safety and that of others.

I agree to do the following to make this happen:

  • Show courtesy and consideration to others.
  • Follow the rules and instructions of staff and other supervisors at the events.
  • Look after myself and my personal belongings.
  • Declare medical conditions that could affect participation in the events.
  • Accept the rules set by the school for the events.

I understand that my parents / caregivers will be contacted and I may be sent home at their expense if:

  • My actions are considered unacceptable by staff / supervisors of these events.
  • I breach the behaviour / discipline standards of the school.
  • My actions put me or others in any danger.
