Parents

XUNO at Mackellar Primary School

Mackellar Primary School is very excited to launch the new parent portal – XUNO (pronounced ‘zoo-no’). This initiative will enable parents to log in and have immediate access to student information. Information available to you will include your student’s timetable and attendance in classes, student reports and unexplained absences.

New features of the system will include direct communication with your student’s teachers, up to date news items and information, greater breakdown of attendance and access to your student’s achievements and behavioural incidents. 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 College.

We look forward to connecting parents, students and teachers through XUNO and believe it will enhance the communication and connectedness of families with Mackellar Primary School.

How to access:

To log on families must have a current email address that has been registered with the school. Please contact our administration office if you need to update or register your email address.

The address to XUNO is https://mackellarps.xuno.com.au

Your username will be your Family Code or Email Address. New families to Mackellar Primary School will be emailed account details once the child has commenced schooling. If you do not receive or have lost this email, please contact the office for assistance.

Once you have your username and password, simply type this into the login page and click“Sign In”:
