Xuno Communication App

XUNO (pronounced ‘zoo-no’) is a portal which enables parents to log in and have immediate access to student information. Information available to you will include your child’s timetable and attendance in classes, student reports and unexplained absences.

New features of the system will include direct communication with your child’s teachers, up to date news items and information, greater breakdown of attendance and access to your child’s achievements. XUNO is also used to make bookings for interviews before key reporting periods and before parent/teacher interviews.

XUNO is also used to showcase news items and calendar events to assist parents with planning and keeping up to date with what is happening at the School.

Xuno Family App


Seesaw is an amazing app used to keep families in touch with what is happening in their child’s classroom. It is a great way for students to share what they are learning at school with their families.  Seesaw is a safe and creative way for your child to document their learning while practising a range of digital literacy skills in a moderated environment. Each child has their own journal in which they load photos, videos, drawings, and notes to showcase their learning in authentic ways. Seesaw opens communication with not only you but the student as well.

Seesaw is used at Mulgrave Primary School for several different tasks throughout the year. These include reading journals, homework, portfolios and ongoing assessments

Music Lessons

Mulgrave Primary School has a company that comes to us to teach your children musical instruments or vocal lessons.

Wonnies would like to welcome all families to a new year of music lessons. We are looking forward to working with new and current families again in 2024


Music lessons that are taught at school are to provide children an opportunity to learn in an environment that they are familiar with. Our primary objective with teaching at schools is to build the best music program (with the support of the music co-ordinator), for the school and to encourage as many children to learn one of the many instruments that we offer.
Parents no longer have to drive their children to lessons after school and with our program, there are plenty of opportunities to perform and to join our school bands. We work together with the school to ensure that children are not taken from their ‘specialist’ or ‘core learning’ subjects to attend lessons.

Individual or Group Lessons are available at all schools.
Children are collected from their class during school hours, at recess or lunch. Our teachers make sure their students are not missing the same class each week.
