Hats

All children are required to wear school bucket hats in the school yard at all times from September 1st through to April 30th. If a student does not have a hat they must sit under the shade outside their class door or sit under the shade sails in the eating area. Our school actively supports Sunsmart policies. School hats are available to purchase at the office.

Lunches

It is important that children have healthy lunches and snacks at school. Water bottles are great to have at their tables to drink. Please don’t freeze drink bottles or put cordial in them. We encourage ‘rubbish free’ lunches to minimise the rubbish in our yard and the waste of resources that are used to wrap food items. by using plastic containers you can help reduce the amount of rubbish brought to school.

Lunch Eating

Lunch is eaten inside between 1:20 and 1:30 pm. If a student has not completed eating their lunch they take their lunch outside and eat in the eating area under the shade sails.

Medication

If your child requires medication whilst they are at school, the medication needs to be taken to the office by the parent or guardian. The school can only administer medication if we receive it from an adult. Dosage and times need to be clearly labelled on the medication. Children should not have medication in their bag.

Medical Action Plan

If your child suffers from asthma, anaphylaxis or allergy, we require an updated action plan that has been filled in and signed by your doctor. These plans need to be updated annually. Please ensure that you supply the school with a current plan.

Newsletter

The newsletter is published weekly and is emailed out each Friday. The newsletter can also be accessed from this website. You can subscribe on this website to receive a copy via email. Just click on the subscribe button on the bottom of the home page and fill in the email address you wish to receive it on.

Calico Bags

Each student will be receiving a calico money bag at the start of the year. We will use the calico bag instead of envelopes and plastic money bags as they are environmentally friendly. Each year the calico bags will be reused.

Assembly

Each Monday and Friday whole school assemblies are held. Each week a different class is responsible for running the assembly. The national anthem is sung on Monday’s assembly. Birthdays are celebrated on both days. Students of the Week are presented with their certificates on Monday morning. Parents are welcome to stay and attend assembly.

Students of the Week

Teachers recognise children who have made a special effort in class during the week by awarding them a ’Student of the Week’ certificate. Each class, specialist teacher and the principal give out an award each week. The students of the week are announced in Friday’s newsletter and awards are given out on Monday’s assembly.

Attendance

Regular school attendance is vital for your child’s progress. All children need to attend school daily. The school teaching program starts promptly at 9:00am, so we suggest that you make sure your child arrives before this time to get themselves organised and have a chat with their friends. School finishes at 3:15pm, with bus travellers getting on their bus at 3:10pm. Please schedule non-essential appointments outside these hours.

Late Arrivals & Early Departures

All parents / guardians must now come via the office if they are dropping their child off after 9am, or if they are picking their child up before 3.15pm. There is a new book to sign students both in and out of school.

Absences

If your child is absent it is a requirement that a parent or guardian informs the school via written note or a phone call. Please send a note to school with your child when your child returns to school or ring the office on 50245345. If your child will be absent for an extended period please inform the class teacher or school before they leave.
