Leadership: This week I would like to introduce our 2017 School Leaders. Our Captains were elected last year by the staff and student body from Year 2 upwards. Congratulations to Daniel Wallace, Will Stone, Jayda Sullivan and Hayley Chown. I look forward to working with you as our school leaders and am confident that you will do a wonderful job.
Safety: I know that the car parking space is very limited around our school and that dropping your children off is at times challenging and difficult. Please take care however to follow all road rules as there will be an increased presence from both the local police as well as the transport personnel from the council. I'm aware that a few parents have already been advised that they will be adding to the government coffers.
Buses: Most children now have their new bus passes and are confidently catching the bus to and from school. Could all parents please remind their children about bus safety and waiting patiently at the bus stop. A reminder also for parents that unless requested please don't offer children a lift home. While kindly meant this has the potential to cause much confusion and concern.
Appointments: Its wonderful that we have such a supportive caring parent group who want to work with our teachers and pass on information. Please remember however that if you would like to talk to a teacher you will need to make an appointment as staff are busy with their classes and meetings in the morning. You are always welcome to come to the front office, phone or email via the class blog to make suitable times or advise staff of changes in child's life.
