Principal’s Post 5 February 2020
Welcome to the very first edition of ‘From The Principal’s Desk’ for 2020
Picnic In The Playground
This Friday afternoon, all classes will open their doors to say welcome to the new school year. Doors will open between 3:30pm and 4:30pm. Your child will be able to show their families their class, the art room, the library … the list goes on. It will be a great way to meet the teachers (including our new teachers) and have an informal chat. From 4:30pm onwards, there will be food trucks, live music and P&C members will be selling Keep Cups and Stubby Holders.
So why not bring down a picnic rug and enjoy the “welcome back to school” with our inaugural Picnic In The Playground … meet the new families, meet the teachers and enjoy the festivities (see the flyer attached).
Last year the School Council reviewed and clarified the Uniform Policy in regard to correct student uniform. The wording of the policy was somewhat clouded by the introduction of the faction polo (opposed to the faction t-shirt). The policy now states all students are to wear the yellow polo (or school dress) every day of the week. The only day students can wear the faction polo is their sports day (Thursday/Friday … to be confirmed by your child’s class teacher) or on sports carnival days. On Monday all students from Year 1 – 6 were advised that it was now expected that they will wear a yellow school polo (or basic yellow polo) or school dress on all days not deemed a sports day. For questions regarding this clarity of the uniform policy, please don’t hesitate to come and see me.
