Exemption reminder

A reminder that if your child is going to be absent for 2 days or more for a family holiday then you will need to complete an exemption form prior to the absence. Please contact Di to arrange a form.


Hello all – our vacation care program is live! See link below. Please note the Tuesday excursion is extremely limited, so first in, best dressed! It is also crucial that if you are coming that day, that you arrive before 8:30, so that we can catch public transport. Please also discuss with your children beforehand the importance of public bus safety – and look out for a permission slip closer to the date once you have booked in! 

We are so excited for another richly fun, exciting and educational vacation care! Please remember to pack lunch for your child(ren) each day, and come with sunscreen already applied! 

See you all soon. 


A Message from Emily

Lately, I have been reflecting on what it means to be grateful. More specifically, being grateful for the little things in my day-to-day life.  I want to encourage you all with a short and sweet message this week. To find 5 things to be grateful for at the end of your day. It is so easy to get to the end of the day, sigh, and think of all the things that went wrong, or that we wished we would have done or that we regretted doing. Mental health specialists have proven that the more we practise the discipline of gratitude, the more we naturally do it. I encourage you to try doing this at the end of each day, finding 5 things to be grateful for. Maybe after a week you could increase it up to 10. 

Take care, 

Emily Morgan, Pastoral Care Worker

CHECK: Covid measures still in place

As you are no doubt aware, there have been an increase of community cases of Covid. Though it is not mandatory, it is recommended that all students in years 3 to 6 continue to wear face masks when indoors to help reduce the spread of the virus.  We have a number of staff with vulnerable family members and we would like to ask families to please continue to wear masks in the buildings.  Thank you for your assistance in keeping everyone safe! 


Here are the current recommendations from the Department for Education:  

COVID safe measures

  • All students and staff must stay home if unwell, even mildly. If students become unwell at school, we are unable to care for them here and we will be contacting you to collect them asap. Please have a plan in place for someone who can collect your child within a half hour. 
  • We will be maximising ventilation by leaving doors/windows open, using air conditioning and fans, and keeping doors and windows open. Please make sure your kids have a jumper - it might be cold in classrooms with the additional ventilation. We have had a number of students complaining about the cold, without a jumper in their bags. 
  • Adults will practise physical distancing where possible. 
  • We will continue to practise and promote hand and respiratory hygiene. Hand sanitiser will be provided for regular use, and disposable masks.
  • Students are being asked to fill up their drink bottles from taps in preference to drinking directly from the taps, so please make sure they have a labelled bottle every day. 

Face masks

  • We are still asking everyone to wear masks inside, to minimise the risk of infection. 
  • Face masks are strongly recommended for students in years 3 to 6. We will be expecting all students in the Year 3-6 classes to be wearing a mask. 
  • We have received a supply of smaller masks, and we encourage our younger students to wear masks. Children can bring their own masks from home as well. 
  • Teachers will be wearing masks, except when it impedes the ability to teach. 

Can parents and carers come into the buildings? 

  • We have been asked to minimise the number of adults who come onto our site for the time being.  Please send notes back to school with children rather than dropping them off yourselves, and contact us by phone or SeeSaw in preference to meeting in person.
  • However, if you need to see us, yes you are welcome! You just need to ensure you wear a mask and practise physical distancing from other adults.

Pick up and drop off

  • In the morning please continue to drop children off at one of the entrances to the school grounds, and allow them to make their own way to their classrooms. If you need to speak to your child’s teacher, please make contact through the SeeSaw app. 
  • We are now welcoming families to come into the yard at the end of the day. Note masks are no longer required when outdoors. 


  • Assemblies are now allowed to be held in person once again with COVID safe measures in place, once a fortnight on the Friday of every odd week at 2:30 unless informed otherwise.
