Enrolment Information

Operoo- College Parent Portal

Operoo (formerly known as CareMonkey) is an innovative parent-controlled electronic medical form for schools with a duty of care. It’s an electronic version of the paper-based forms you would normally complete for excursions, camps etc. Operoo is the College’s main form of communication for key events relating to your child. It provides parent’s the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately while providing the school with instant access to the emergency information provided by you.

To find out more about Operoo, click here.

Operoo offers the school and families the following:

The data can only be viewed via an authorised staff member with their login and password making data more secure than paper forms.
The data in Operoo will never be shared with any other person or group without your consent. Parents control the data that is available and can remove access at any time.
 

You have the ability to update the data at any time and ensure your child’s details are correct. This should be done whenever there is a change in information (such as a new emergency contact number or new medical condition). It is important to ensure these details are up to date before a camp or excursion to ensure staff are well prepared to care for your child.

Operoo allows our staff to access your child’s emergency details on mobile devices while they are on excursions and camps. This will save time in emergency situations. Data is more secure than paper forms. If a mobile device with Operoo data is lost or stolen the data cannot be viewed as it is in encrypted (scrambled) format.

Parents will receive electronic permission forms for excursions and camps and can reply instantly without filling in a single form.
