Our Kindergarten students are beginning to settle into the new routines of school. It has been lovely to welcome many new families to our school community as well as welcome the familiar faces.
Thank you to those of you who made yourselves available for the Parent Teacher Meet and Greet interviews last week. This was a forum for you to share information about your child which in turn assists our teachers in providing learning experiences to cater for individual’s needs.

This year has seen the Diocese introduce a new form of attendance roll marking to comply with requirements under the Education Act. Under new requirements a roll call will take place three times during the day. If your child is late to school they will initially be marked absent and are required to come via the office to be signed in with a parent or guardian. If your child is dropped off and not signed in by a parent/guardian this will automatically be late arrival and unjustified on the roll. This data will then be entered into their attendance record. Please note, we have taken into consideration those students who arrive on late buses and this does not apply to them. If during the day you are picking up your child for any reason, we ask that you come to the Office and sign them out and likewise, this information will be entered into their attendance record. On this topic of attendance we have noticed that there are a large number of students who are regularly arriving well after the 8.50am bell (we are not referring to the bus travellers). Please be reminded that it is an expectation that students are at school by 8.50am. Before school is also a great opportunity for students to socialise with their peers, run off energy and successfully transition into a new school day.
We would also like to remind Parents and Guardians that the Staff Car Park is Out of Bounds at Drop Off & Pick Up times. It is for staff only and access to the school is via Kiewa Street during these times. There is a Free Multi-storey car park across the road from the school that has access via traffic lights at both intersections. The Kiss & Drop Zone is also an area that needs to keep flowing during this time so please be mindful of others and stay in your car. There is a teacher on duty at the pick up gate until 3.25pm.
