Camp 2019 parent meeting

All parents and caregivers of current year 5 children are invited to the information evening for Camp 2019 at 7pm on Thursday 16th August in the staffroom. This evening will give information about the camp and give parents the opportunity to ask any questions they may have. This meeting forms part of the outdoor education process to enable parents to give informed consent for their child to attend camp. Please note that attending this meeting is a prerequisite if you wish to be considered as a parent helper for camp.

It has come to our attention that for a few families 16th August is not a suitable date and the staff are willing to run an extra meeting on the morning of Thursday 23rd August at 7:45am. This meeting will last approximately half an hour.

Drop off zone in the mornings

Once again we appeal for safe practices when dropping off your children in the mornings and using the drop off zone. Please move down the drop off zone and do not park at the top so cars behind queue down the road when there is enough room to move down. Children can walk the short distance from the drop off to their classroom! It is also dangerous to park on the opposite side on the yellow lines and you do this at your own risk. Drivers must be vigilant when pulling away and we have had someone caught by a car when crossing back over the drop off zone. Maybe consider walk and park options  – we have many streets within 5 minutes walking distance of the school where you could walk your child into school instead.
