Next term we will receive a report and this will be published online.
Millen Primary School’s Business Plan 2021 – 2024
Our new business plan was endorsed by the School Board this term. You will receive a copy via Connect with this edition of the Katijiny. It will also be uploaded to the Millen website.
Congratulations to the senior students who attended the carnival last week. This year the T-ball team and the Newcombe ball team achieved first place! The full results will be shared at the next senior assembly.
Easter Hat Parade
Parents and caregivers are invited to attend our annual Easter Hat Parade this Thursday, 1 April at 8.45am on the quadrangle.
You may have noticed a pedestrian access way has been created between the new and the old administration building. This access way continues across the driveway and connects to the steps on Playfield Street. A bollard has been placed on this driveway to prevent cars driving between the two buildings. This week the bollard was knocked over (during school hours) by a car reversing.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents to park on the streets surrounding the school and not in the staff carpark. There are children walking across this pedestrian walkway during school hours and their safety is our priority. Thank you.
