New Electronic Gates
The work to install the new electronic carpark gate and the intercom system on the main pedestrian gate on Stanley Street is now complete. This will provide the school with another layer of security and safety. If you need to enter the school premises during school hours, please follow the instructions on the pedestrian gate on Stanley Street. The gates will be open before school and locked at 9am.

Baby Boom at Concord Public School!
It has been an exciting year for many members of our staff, welcoming new bundles of joy to their families and becoming parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, many for the very first time. This week, Mr McGee became a dad for the second time to Ethan Rusty McGee. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs McGee! Mum, baby and dad are all doing very well. We also said farewell to Mrs Kang and Mrs Vermiglio who are both expecting their second child in the coming months. Our well wishes and thoughts are with you both as you welcome your new addition to your family.
Work over the holiday period
Contractors from the Department of Education will be replacing the external awnings and walkway shelters in front of the library, computer lab and Caringa Building. This will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.
As Term 3 comes to a close, I’d like to thank you all for your continued support and understanding as we work through the challenges that we face as a community. I’m incredibly proud of our staff and how they continue to have the students’ learning and wellbeing at the forefront of all that they do on a daily basis. This would not be possible without our parents and carers working in partnership with the educators. And for that, I thank you!
And now, a message to our students – as we launch into our final term of 2020, think of the challenges that you have faced throughout the year and what you have learnt along the way. Now link this challenge into one of your goals for Term 4. I’m sure that when you focus on this new goal, you will work on achieving it. For some, they may achieve it by the end of Term 4. For others it may take a little longer. Good luck and I look forward to hearing all about your new Term 4 goal.
A happy and relaxing holiday period for you all. Enjoy this beautiful spring weather and enjoy the special times with family, friends and loved-ones.
See you in Term 4!
Ms A. Vountoulas
