CANTEEN

Our school canteen provides fresh and nutritious snacks and lunches at affordable prices. Orders can be placed using the convenient online ordering system. Log onto www.flexischools.com.au by 9.15am and follow the prompts. Each student needs to have their own order. The orders are then made up by our canteen supervisor and/or volunteer assistants. You are most welcome to help out in the canteen, even if it's just for a couple of hours. This is a great way of meeting other parents and helping the school. Please check the weekly newsletter for information about the canteen.

Completed lunch orders are sent back to your child's class before lunch.

Snacks (which can not be ordered using Flexischools) can be purchased by students at recess and lunch time. Follow this link to view the Snack Price List (pdf 73 KB). Please note that this Price List is subject to change and should only be used  as a guide. 

 

CARNIVALS

A number of sports carnivals are held throughout the year. These include swimming, athletics and cross country. The 3 - 6 carnivals are designed to select children who will go on to compete at zone level. Students in Year 2 that turn 8 in the year of the carnival may also compete at these carnivals.

Successful competitors at the zone level may qualify for participation in region, state and then national levels.

The school also holds a K - 2 Sports Carnival on our school oval. It is a wonderful event that allows for all students to actively participate in a range of running races and sporting activities. Parents also have their chance to relive their youth in our parent races. 

 

CHOIR

If your child loves to sing and learn new songs they may be able to join one of our choirs. The students in the choirs attend practice sessions, perform at school functions throughout the year and may also be involved in singing outside of the school. For example, our choir students have performed at the Sydney Opera House and in the School Spectacular.

 

COMPETITIONS

Our school offers students the opportunities to participate in external competitions which may be free or at a cost to families. Some competitions we have been involved in are the Maths Olympiad, Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition, debating, Premiers Reading Challenge and the Spelling Bee. Parents are notified of available upcoming competitions by teachers or via the school newsletter/School Enews.

 

CONTACTING THE SCHOOL

General enquiries should be made at the school office, which is located at the front of the administration building. The contact number for the school is 02 9481 8575.

Specific enquiries about your child's progress or social interactions should be made to the class teacher. We ask parents to make an appointment to meet with the teacher at a mutually convenient time and to understand that teachers cannot meet while they are teaching or supervising children. Appointments can be made via a note or in person at the office.

 

CONTACT INFORMATION

Each student has contact information provided by parents stored in the office that are essential to your child's welfare in an emergency. Please notify the school of change of address, telephone number, health requirements and emergency contact details as soon as they occur. It is vital that these details are kept up to date so that we can contact parents promptly in the event of injury or illness to a child. Parents are also asked to supply an email address to allow for email communication of updates and other information.

 

COUNSELLOR

Our school counsellor works three days a week at our school. The counsellor works closely with the learning and support team. The school counsellor's work involves: counselling students, assisting parents, assessing students, helping to identify and plan for students with special needs and liaising with other agencies. If you would like to make an appointment to see the school counsellor, please contact the front office.
