The Term One reports can now been seen on the school’s new parent portal, the online website that allows parents access to the school’s database. There you will be able to see the contact details we hold for your family; your son or daughter’s timetable; an attendance record of the year to date; an NCEA summary if he or she is a senior student; a full account record of fees charged and paid; as well as all reports issued from the end of last year onwards.
We have decided to try the electronic reporting mainly for two reasons. The first is an attempt to make the school more sustainable, a long term goal that is going to become more important over time. The second is to save money, there is no extra cost to use the portal, and it is costly for paper, printing and postage. Any money saved can be redirected into classrooms at a time when budgets are being stretched.
Parents and students both have access through the same login but have different passwords so that students do not have access to all the information. If we already have your email address, you should have been emailed your username and both parent and student passwords.
To access the Parent Portal, go to this address: http://kamar.ths.school.nz
We advise that you copy (ctrl c) and past (ctrl v) your passwords into the respective boxes to avoid typing errors.
Your feedback on the site is appreciated so I encourage you to email me with your thoughts. Also if you have difficulty in accessing the portal please contact me using this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
