Term Two Planning
Communication for this term will consist of posting Term Overviews on Seesaw and a formal mid-year report, in Week 10 of this term.
Please make sure you have made note of the dates and events occurring this term. There is a public holiday on Monday 5th June (Week 7). We conclude Term 2 on Friday 30th June 2023.
This a gentle reminder to please keep your child home if they are unwell. This in turn has an impact on the other students as well as the staff. While it can be hard to know whether to keep your child at home when they are not feeling well, there are some signs to look out for. Keep your child home if they have:
- fever (a temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius)
- nausea with vomiting
- sore eyes with pus or mucus
- sore throat
- bad cough
- rash or skin sores, especially on the face, hands and feet
If your child is feeling generally unwell and has a runny nose, low energy levels or little appetite, you may want to keep a closer watch. Assess their health for a few hours before deciding whether they should stay home for the day. It is very important to keep children home when they are sick to minimise the risk of spreading illnesses to other children, staff members and their families. In particular, viruses spread quickly when there is close contact and cause many of the diseases that are common among young children, especially when a child is coughing, sneezing or has a runny nose. Your consideration of this matter is greatly appreciated.
Sacrament of Confirmation
We wish our Year 6 students who are making their Sacrament of Confirmation next weekend, all the very best. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, as you embark on a new part of your sacramental journey. We thank Miss Kezic, for all her support and guidance with the Year 6 students.
This a reminder that school photos will take place on Monday 22 May 2023 (Pre-Kindy students on Friday 26 May 2023). ALL envelopes must be returned to school ASAP even if you have ordered online, or not ordered at all. Each child needs an envelope to hand to the photographers on Monday. Envelopes were sent home with your child on Monday. Students need to wear their full winter uniform.
Student safety in their transition to and from school is of utmost importance. To ensure safe and efficient traffic flow surrounding our school, please ensure that you are following the before and after school procedures. To reduce traffic congestion, we need your support to ensure our school is a safe and efficient place for student drop-off and collection. We ask for your cooperation to help alleviate traffic congestion by being mindful of others and ensuring that our children are safe at all times.
Only parents and families who have a child in Pre-Kindy, Kindy and or Pre-Primary can park and use the ECE Car Park. This is NOT a drive through so please make sure you respect this space as child safety is a priority for all concerned. All other families who have a child in Years 1-6 will need to use the Loop Car Park for drop off and pick up.
Students in Pre-Primary – Year 6 are dismissed from class at 3:00 pm. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will be dismissed from class at 2.45 pm. Please be prompt and ensure you clearly communicate with your child how they will be getting home each day and from where they will be collected.
