Standard Collection Notice
The College collects personal information, including sensitive information about students and parents or guardians, before and during the course of a student's enrolment at the College. This may be in writing or in the course of conversations. The primary purpose of collecting this information is to enable the College to provide schooling to the student and to enable them to take part in all the activities of the College.
Some of the information we collect is to satisfy the College's legal obligations, particularly to enable
the College to discharge its duty of care.
Laws governing or relating to the operation of a school require certain information to be collected and disclosed. These include relevant Education Acts, and Public Health and Child Protection laws.
Health information about students is sensitive information within the terms of the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act. We may ask you to provide medical reports about students from time to time.
The College from time to time discloses personal and sensitive information to others for administrative and educational purposes, including to facilitate the transfer of a student to another school. This includes to other schools, government departments, medical practitioners, and people providing services to the College, including specialist visiting teachers, coaches, volunteers and counsellors.
Personal information collected from students is regularly disclosed to their parents or guardians.
The College may store personal information in the 'cloud' which may mean that it resides on servers which are situated outside Australia.
The College from time to time engages in fundraising activities. Information received from you may be used to make an appeal to you. It may also be disclosed to organisations that assist in the College's fund raising activities solely for that purpose. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent.
On occasions information such as academic and sporting achievements, student activities and similar news is published in College Newsletters and magazines and on our website. Photographs of student activities such as sporting events, school camps and school excursions may be taken for publication in College Newsletters and magazines and on our website. The College will obtain permission from the student's parent or guardian as part of the enrolment process.
If you provide the College with the personal information of others, such as doctors or emergency contacts, we encourage you to inform them that you are disclosing that information to the College and why, that they can access that information if they wish and that the College does not usually disclose this information to third parties.
