The College collects personal information, including sensitive information, about students and parents before and during the course of a student’s enrolment at the College. The primary purpose of collecting this information is to enable the College to provide schooling for your son/daughter.
Some of the information we collect is to satisfy the College’s legal obligations, particularly to enable the College to discharge its duty of care.
Certain laws governing or relating to the operation of schools require that certain information is collected. These include Public Health and Child Protection Laws.
Health information about students is sensitive information within the terms of the National Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act. We ask you to provide medical reports about students from time to time.
The College from time to time discloses personal and sensitive information to others for administrative and educational purposes. This includes to other schools, government departments, Lutheran Education Queensland, Lutheran Education Australia, Lutheran Church of Australia Queensland District, medical practitioners, and people providing services to the College, including specialist visiting teachers, sports coaches and volunteers.
If we do not obtain the information referred to above we may not be able to enrol or continue the enrolment of your child.
Personal information collected from students is regularly disclosed to parents. On occasions, information such as academic and sporting achievements, student activities and other news is published in the College newsletter, magazine, or official College publications such as brochures, prospectus, local press and the web-site. This may include photographs.
Parents may seek access to personal information collected about them and their son/daughter by contacting the College. Students may also seek access to personal information about themselves. However, there will be occasions when access is denied. Such occasions would include where access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others, where access may result in a breach of the College’s duty of care to the student, or where a student has provided information in confidence.
As you may know, the College from time to time engages in fundraising activities. Information received from you may be used to make an appeal to you, however your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your express consent.
If you supply the College with the personal information of others, such as doctors or emergency contacts, we encourage you to inform them that you are disclosing the information to the College and why.
