Government funded bus services are available from most outlying areas to our school. A town bus service also operates, but a pre-paid ticket is needed for each trip. The bus service is operated by Wells Waggons who can be contacted on 6452 2900.
The newsletter is sent home each fortnight via the School Star communication App. This App is for news items & also if a message needs to be sent home. If the App is not read within in a certain time frame, the message is then sent as a text. School Star is only available to parents of the school via their stated mobile number.
The breakfast program operates every morning until the school bell at 8:40am. This program is operated by volunteers. Toast, weetbix & fruit are offered every day. There are a couple of mornings where special items are offered, eg Milo Monday, Cheesy Tuesday at certain times of the year.
Assemblies happen at the beginning and end of each term and are always advertised in the school newsletter. They begin at 1.10pm on a Friday afternoon. Every class is involved in organising assembly throughout the year. Assemblies provide an opportunity to recognise achievement and develop a sense of belonging to the whole school.
Upon detection of head lice your child will need to be treated, removing all eggs, before they can return to the school classroom. It is advised that they should be treated again 3 days later, in case lice were missed in the first treatment.
When treatment has been applied, please inform the office so that this issue can be dealt with in the most appropriate way for both parents & students. An information sheet is also available with detailed treatment guidelines to help deal with this issue and minimise the impact on your family. Early treatment can prevent the spread to further close contacts.
We would encourage all parents to discuss any issues that you have with the teacher involved so that a solution that is agreeable to both can be worked through. If you think this is inadequate, the parent should then talk with the specific Head of School about the issue.
Parents are asked to use social media wisely and to speak positively about the school. If there is an issue, please discuss this first with the appropriate school person. If using photos of school life on social media, please use discretion, being considerate of people’s feelings & privacy.
