Many thanks to those who have paid their voluntary contribution fees.
Last year parents contributed $4287 and this year we have already collected $8580. The increase appears to be due to two main factors - we have had a larger number of parents pay than last year and also a number have elected to contribute a higher amount for the technology component.
A number of parents have also commented how much easier it is to make payments through the direct deposit facility that we now have available.
We greatly appreciate this parental support. The money helps us to purchase additional art supplies, stationery and specific technology resources.
Parents can still make a payment if they have not yet done so, either by direct deposit or through the front office.
Before and After School Parking
Could I please remind parents that the staff car park is not to be used for dropping off and picking up children before and after school. This area is extremely busy as we have trucks dropping off canteen and school supplies as well as staff cars entering and exiting the area. It is an out of bounds area for children and should not be used to pick up or drop off children. I realise that parking is sometimes difficult, especially in wet weather, but I would ask you to please not park in this area as it does create safety issues for everyone.
