Our school provides supervision from 8.45am to 9.00am in the morning and from 3.20pm to 3.35pm in the afternoons on school days. The school also utilises the services of TheirCare to provide families with additional separately paid childcare.
Unfortunately, we have unsupervised children being dropped off from 8.00am in the mornings by parents. These children are outdoors in some severe weather, are more likely to get into unsupervised, aggressive situations with other students and are at physical risk from accidents and uninvited adults.
Are you comfortable with exposing your children to these risks? We aren’t? If the school forms the belief that children are being put into potentially dangerous situations, the school must make appropriate reports to external agencies.
Please do not drop your children at school before 8.45am unless you are staying with them until that time. Parents have the option of enrolling their children in the out of school hours service (TheirCare). Help us to help your child stay safe.
The school will be holding its third Curriculum Day on Monday 17th September. That is the last Monday of term three. Staff will be sharing and examining specific teaching and learning approaches that have been implemented during this year. Students are not to attend school on that day.
Exciting news! From today (27th June, 2018), and until the end of the month, everyone who purchases an Entertainment Membership through our Online Order Page will receive the choice of FREE Postage.
The Entertainment Book is available as a digital copy via www.entbook.com.au/1131z40 link.
Scholastic Book Fair is coming and we need Parent Helpers.
As you know one of the highlights of Term 3 are the book week festivities which includes the Scholastic Book Fair. The Book Fair commences on Monday 20th August, in the afternoon and runs through to Friday 24th August, 2018 finishing at 9.00am. It will be held in the corridor outside the Art and Science rooms and will be open before school from 8:15am-9.00am and then after school from 3:30pm-4:30pm.
The students will be taken by their teacher as a class group to visit the Scholastic Book Fair at some time during the week. They may come home with a wish list of books and you can choose to purchase those books by sending in an order and the money, or you can come along at the times listed above and visit the Scholastic Book Fair yourself.
In the past the Book Fair has run smoothly with the aid of our fantastic parent helpers. Please contact Mrs Drew in the office if you are available to help out, we need all the help we can get!
