MSA Manual

Getting prepared for the first day of school can be overwhelming… 

We’ve put together a checklist of everything you need to prepare yourself and your student for a successful first day with MSA. Please continue reading below for further details.

1. Uniforms

New uniform items can be purchased during our Uniform Days on Jan 18-19 (Gold Coast) + Jan 18-20 (Springfield). These are also available daily at reception during our school operating hours. 

Second hand-uniforms can be bought/sold via our Second-Hand Uniform page on Facebook via https://www.facebook.com/groups/772335267443910 

2. Supplies – MSA provides it all

Included in our term levy fees is the cost of supplies for your student. Which means MSA is able to provide all stationary items for your student so you don’t have to! We supply any resources required throughout the curriculum too, including excursions. 

All your student will need to bring on their first day is a backpack packed with:

  • snacks for morning tea
  • a yummy and nutritious lunch
  • water bottle and a hat

Each of these items should have your students their name securely labeled on them so that they can be easily identified if lost.

As always, no hat, no play!

3. Check all recent emails from MSA

There was a recent email sent out to all MSA parents regarding information about your campus’ address, contacts, parking, drop-off + pick-up instructions, bus routes, rec club, term levy’s, student medication (if applicable) and more. Please check your inbox for this email. If you haven’t received this email, please let your relevant campus’ administration team know:

Coolangatta: coolangatta@msa.qld.edu.au 

Southport: southport@msa.qld.edu.au

Springfield: springfield@msa.qld.edu.au 

Alternatively, these documents will be shared on the private parents Facebook page. If you are not a member of this yet, you can request to join via the following links:

4. Academic Calendar

We highly recommend that you review and download the relevant 2023 Academic Calendar. This will show you term dates, public holidays and even class times. It is definitely a handy tool to keep with you or even on your fridge!

5. Review updates School policies and procedures

We also encourage that each parent read and review our schools policies and procedures. These can be found on our website via https://msa.qld.edu.au/policies-and-procedures/ 

That should be all you need for a guaranteed successful first day of school! We are so excited to commence the 2023 school year with you all and even more so to see what fantastic things it has to offer. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your campus’ administration team…

Let the countdown begin!
