Children should be made aware of road hazards, elementary safety rules. Your concern should ensure that your child does not loiter on the way home, visit friends without your knowledge, or talk to strangers.  Young children should be accompanied to school by an adult until you are sure they can be completely safe on their own.

School sports houses

Children are allocated to one of four sport houses.

These are:

  • Emu - blue
  • Kangaroo - red
  • Koala - green
  • Platypus - yellow.

Allocations are based on enrolment numbers and year of birth however children from the same family are allocated to the same house.

Parade

The whole school parade is held fortnightly on Friday mornings at 8.50 a.m. 

P to 2 parade is held on the alternate weeks.

Parents are invited and encouraged to attend, as parade provides the students with an opportunity to share achievements and develop pride in their school.  Parade is held in the Multi-Purpose Hall.

Illness and accidents

Parents of children who become distressed through illness at school will be notified and asked to take the child home. 

Please ensure the school has up-to-date information regarding emergency contacts so that an adult can be reached if illness or an accident should occur.

In case of an accident in the school grounds, first aid will be administered. Where possible, the parents or emergency contacts will be notified by phone and their instructions followed. 

However, some situations will require the immediate action of the Principal, and the Principal will take whatever action is required to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your child. If an ambulance is required, it will be called.
