Week beginning Monday, 27th July
Building works commencing
The construction of our new administration building will be taking place over this semester and is due for completion in March 2021. This week the site will be fenced off ready for the works to begin. This will have an impact on parking.
Please note the following:
- There will be no access through the office for students or parents before or after school
- Parents dropping off and collecting children for appointments during the school day will have pedestrain access only to the office via the entry on Playfield Street (strictly no parking on the oval or staff carpark) or via the driveway on Pinedale Street
- The school driveway on Etwell Street will need to be kept clear of vehicles throughout the school day
Please refer to the map below.
School Board parent election
If you have not yet voted for new parent representatives, please do so this week. The survey remains open until Thursday afternoon.
School Board’s Annual General Meeting
This will be held from 3pm to 4.30pm next Thursday, 6 August in the library. All members of our community are invited to attend. There will be a presentation on student leadership by our Year 6 student leaders and on our Play Position Statement by Mrs Noelene Johnston.
This Wednesday we will be holding our first assembly since Term 1. Parents are invited to attend but reminded to please remember to maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres from others wherever possible. We will not be presenting class items for the remainder of the year (as previously explained) but we will be presenting merit certificates. Parents of children receiving these have been notified.
