Managing Information

Keeping a filing system

Many parents find it very worthwhile to keep organised notes and records about their children. It can make it easier to keep everyone informed about what's happening with your child.

It's helpful to come prepared to any meetings regarding your child and some parents like to photocopy relevant documents and give them to their child's new teacher at the start of the school year.

You might find it useful to keep the following records organised and accessible:

General notes about your child

A list of contacts

School records

Medical records

*Queensland Health provides all new Queensland parents iwth a Personal Health Record to record this information. If you need one, contact any hospital maternity ward.
