It has been a pleasure to see returning families and meet new Groves community members this past week, as we get to know our 2020 families through our Administration offices. The staff at our Administration front desks on Campus 1 and 2 have enjoyed welcoming students to the new year and we look forward to working with you all throughout 2020.

Two resources that will support families in their communication with our Administration team around day-to-day information from the College are explained below:

1. EduApp: This smartphone App, available on most platforms, provides access to the Parent Portal on Edumate. Edumate is our student management system, which logs events, correspondence and absences for each student. Please watch a video introducing the system below. We encourage families to use the App regularly to check information about their students. If parents have any connection or login issues, please email edumate-support@groves.qld.edu directly.

2. Absence QuickGuide: This document summarises the absence processes for Groves, which are elaborated in the Student Attendance and Absence Policy within the Parent and Student Handbook. Please follow the steps in the flyer if you need to communicate an absence with the College.

For any clarifications or questions about these processes, or any enquiries about the College, please feel free to speak with our friendly Administration team by phone or in person. Our office hours are 8.00am-3.45pm.
