Intranet and eLearning Resources Acceptable Use Agreement For Students

However, before being granted access to JPC’s Intranet and eLearning Resources, all students must have the permission of their parent/caregiver. Both they and you must sign below as evidence of your approval and their acceptance of the rules of access. Please read the requirements and discuss them with your child, then complete the permission section.

Generic Health & Permission Form

During the year it is necessary for teachers to take students out of the school for a curriculum or co-curriculum trip e.g. visit to the public library, waterpolo game, etc. Each teacher who is taking a trip will inform the parent of the trip by letter. It will be the student’s responsibility to forward that letter to parents. Click here for the form giving parental consent for these ‘day only’ trips. The form also contains a Health Profile which we ask you to complete. The information will be kept on file in the office for staff use only.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in enrolling your child at John Paul College, please attend our Open Night on Thursday 22nd June (4.30pm to 7pm), commencing at 4.30pm with tours of the school.
