Our school photography supplier is AdvancedLife.
Each year our photographers visit the school, usually in term 1, and take photos of every single student and every single class. They will also take photos of the student leader groups too. The exact date is different each year, please see the Calendar for this year’s date.
All students will have their photo taken regardless of whether their families have ordered prints or not.
We usually attempt to organise a make-up photo day for students who are absent on the photo day, though this is not always possible so is not guaranteed.
The photographers do not automatically take photos of siblings. Sibling photos are only taken if you order them in advance (see below).
If you contact the school we can also organise to have younger siblings at the ELC brought over for sibling photos with their older sibling(s) at the school.
These photos are available for order from the AdvancedLife website. You will need to enter the school’s 9-digit code, which is:
LG3 X97 85R
You will need to place orders for each student, and separately for the sibling photo. You must place the order for the sibling photo at least 24 hours before photo day otherwise the photographer will not take the sibling photo.
You can order a variety of photo options:
- portrait prints of different sizes
- class photo
- hi-res digital downloads of photos
- sticker sets
- iron-on labels
There is a cut-off day for ordering photos to have them delivered to the school for free — this date will be communicated each year on Compass. You can still order photos after this date, but you will incur a late order delivery fee from AdvancedLife (this is not a school charge).
You can also go back and order photos of your children from previous years.
Photos are usually delivered to the school 6-8 weeks after photo day, though this depends upon a number of factors. The school will advise when we know when photos will arrive.
By default, when the photos arrive they will be distributed to teachers, who will then distribute them to students to bring home. Sometimes teacher are busy or absent, so they might come home over a couple of days.
When you place your order you have the option to have the photos held at the office for collection by you (e.g.: if you child lives in two households and you don’t want the photos to go home to the other household). When photos arrive at the school we will notify parents on Compass, and you can come to the office to collect them. If you don’t mark your order as “parent collection” then they will be sent home with students.
