Hygiene in School

On the Parent Information Night a number of parents approached the school about soap dispensers in the Year 1-6 toilets. We have found that having soap in the toilets can create some dangerous situations for the students, for example when the soap is dropped on the floor etc.

As an alternative to soap, the school is providing bottles of sanitiser to each classroom. Children will be encouraged to wash their hands with water and then use the sanitiser as they re-enter their classroom. This practice will commence on Monday 16 March. In addition, teachers are happy for children to keep wet wipes or their own sanitiser in their tray or school bag for personal use.

We thank you for your support.

Parent Information Night

A parent information night will be held tonight,  Wednesday 18 February 2015 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. There will be a staggered timetable so that parent/carers can attend as many classroom meetings as they would like. Each teacher will give a short presentation and the remainder of the time will provide parents/carers with and opportunity to talk informally with their child’s teacher. This is and information night for the school and teachers to share sheer practices with you, it is not a time for formal interviews between parents and teachers. Please note: Kindergarten teachers are conducting separate meetings with the parents of their students.

Students are expected to arrive on school grounds (unless attending Senior Choir or setting up for Senior Sport on Fridays) after 8:35am. Your support is welcomed.

Parking around the School

Similar to other schools, we have a number of issues in relation to parking, particularly as the end of the day. We have made a number of changes to our parking processes over the past year to assist you, and to keep our children safe. However, there will always be some sort of hold-up wherever you pick up you child. Please support us to keep you children safe by remaining courteous and patient at pick up time. Anything else puts our kids and yourselves as risk of harm or legal proceedings.
