Staff

We are privileged to be engaged in partnership with you as parents for the goal of successful education of your children. The Staff at Parklands do their best to cater for the needs of each of our students, informing you along the way of progress and challenges.

As a part of this partnership, we encourage you to stay in regular contact with your child’s teachers via email, and take the time to discuss elements of schooling with both them and your child.

All staff can be contacted via email by using their first initial and last name. For example: ateacher@parklands.qld.edu.au. In all cases, the Heads of School are available to field any questions or issues you may have.
