Via Schoolbox, parents can find all the information you need from our community and to support your child’s learning. This includes news, events, practical information regarding fees, services and parent groups, and year level or class information and updates. It also acts as Lauriston’s learning management system and provides parents with quick access to our continuous online reporting, absence information. 

Parents new to Lauriston will be provided with access to Schoolbox prior to their child commencing at Lauriston. We also encourage parents to download the Lauriston Girls’ School app to access and use critical elements of Schoolbox via your mobile device.
