Dear Parents and Caregivers,
TERM 2 PUPIL FREE DAY MONDAY JUNE 24TH (WEEK 9)
Please contact OSHC if you require care.
Congratulations and thank you to Nick Marks who has won a two part grant totaling $2500 from Marion Council with an environmental focus (recycling/waste), for the school. Nick will be presented with the grant cheque at a special Marion Council meeting on Monday the 24th of June.
Freddies, Olivias, Madonnas, Cindys, ‘80s rock and TV stars were all there for the big event!!! Many parents, family and friends along with 2 teams of staff members and some partners had a fabulous evening of fun and fundraising last Saturday at Quiz Night. Expertly led by Quiz Master Damien Triffitt who wowed us with his very best Tom Cruise “Risky Business” impersonation and ably supported by his Quiz Team extraordinaire – Bec, Jenny and Craig. So well organised was this event that we can’t go past thanking Melissa, the fundraising team and Andrea Hayden for the work they did preparing for the event. Quiz Night raised almost $3000, a fantastic effort. Thank you to everyone involved.
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PLAYGROUNDS USE:
GENERALLY AND DURING INTERVIEWS
This is a reminder to all families that the playgrounds are out of bounds, both before and after school. There are an increasing number of students with or without parents playing in the playgrounds especially after school. This disrupts the After School Care OSHC program and makes it very challenging for OSHC educators to adequately supervise students for whom they are providing care. This is also particularly important during Interviews week. We would ask that all children please stay with parents at interviews at all times. If you need to bring more than one child to interviews, those not involved in the interview are asked to please sit at the classroom door with something quiet to do.
REMINDER ABOUT APPROPRIATE DRIVER BEHAVIOUR AT PICK UP TIME
I have again received reports that cars are blocking the Quailo Ave entrance and also building up a queue on Quailo Ave waiting to enter the carpark. On Quailo Ave itself this has often meant cars driving past have had to go out onto the wrong side of the road to get past. This is very dangerous. I would ask you please to find another place to park instead of doing this.
I would also ask you to please ensure your children wait for you where the teacher is on duty in the drop zone rather than come and get in the car if you are stopped in the queue. It is a very dangerous practice to pick children up at the entrance as it is very busy, drivers cannot always see children and it is away from the duty teacher’s line of sight.
Thank you to all families who use our drop zone and carpark entrances respectfully and appropriately. We appreciate your positive role modelling for our students.
PARENT, TEACHER, STUDENT INTERVIEWS – WEEK 9
Next week we commence Parent, Teacher, Student Interviews. If you have not booked in with your child’s teacher, please do so as soon as possible. Your child’s Semester 1 written report will be tabled at the interview.
