Relationship with the Media

If a principal is contacted by the media they can contact the Department’s Media Unit on (03) 8688 7776. This service is also available after hours.

Parental permission (in writing) must be sought in advance before the principal releases information about a student or agrees to a student being photographed by the media.

Note: Most members of the media are aware that they are not allowed on school grounds without the principal’s consent.
