A huge thank you to all the staff and parents that helped out on the House Athletics day. The day really cannot run without the support of Volunteers to help the teachers. We found it a bit light on for helpers this year but thank you to the same parents that have helped year after year, you are amazing. Both parent’s helpers and teachers worked hard all day with little break so thank you for your efforts.
The students did an amazing effort on the day of trying their personal best in the events. The results will be looked at and the District team will be announced by the end of term. If you have any feedback on the day or any questions please see Mr Davis.
The overall results for each house on the day were:
To maximise social, emotional and wellbeing outcomes for students, School Council has approved a plan to trial, in Term 3, the reduction of time students are outside during lunchtime recess. The last ten minutes of lunch recess is of concern as our long-term data shows that most accidents and incidents occur during this time. As an example, incidents (disagreements, social issues and general niggles) occur at a rate of 4:1 in comparison to the 40 minutes before. In the Sick Bay recently, we had very few accidents for 40 minutes; but then 24 students with varying degrees of injury presented in the last ten minutes of lunchtime. It is normal that children have some small accidents and/or disagreements; but they proliferate in those last ten minutes – thus the need for a trial to see if it has positive effects. As another possible positive, the shorter times mean that during very cold and very hot weather our children are exposed less to the elements.
First Session: 9.00am - 11.00am (120 minutes)
Morning Recess: 11.00am - 11.30am (30 minutes)
Second Session: 11.30am - 1.30am (120 minutes)
Inside Supervised Eating time: 1.30pm - 1.40pm (10 minutes)
Afternoon Recess: 1.40pm - 2.20pm (40 minutes)
Third Session: 2.20pm - 3.20pm (60 minutes)

If you are looking for some netball action during the upcoming Term 2 school holidays then please view http:netfitnetball.com.au

We have been contacted by a local resident who informed us that our school children are not being careful enough when on scooters and bikes whilst travelling along Melissa and Richard Drive. They are meandering all over the road and the resident is concerned that there will be an accident, particularly in the area of Melissa and Richard Drive intersection. Students must be aware of traffic at all times.
Remember, as soon as you stop to let your children in or out of the car, you are deemed to be parked. You do not have to leave your car or turn the engine off to be fined so please ensure you are parked in a legal parking area.
At children’s crossings, you must remain stationary at the stop line while any person (including an adult or the supervisor) is on the crossing or the stop sign is displayed. Do not let your child alight at this time, ensure that they wait until you are safely and legally parked.
If you breach a parking regulation the Parking Information Officer assigned to monitor the crossing will usually record your registration number and details, and the Penalty Infringement Notice will be posted to you within the next three days.
Parking is difficult at peak times around a school i.e. 9.00am and 3.25pm however it is only difficult for approx. 10 minutes.
Some ideas to ease your difficulty are:-
To run a session we require a minimum of 10 children.
The cost per child is $50 (if you are entitled to CCB/CCR this will be a reduced rate) for the day and the session runs from 7.30am-600pm.
