Emails are the primary method of communication at BDA. Please ensure it is correct on your enrolment form and checked regularly. (Please make sure the primary guardian's email address is used and not the students)
We also have a Facebook page for BDA parents and students (BDA Mums and Dads), we strongly suggest you become a member of this page as it is also used as a primary source of communication.
