If you are running late on an assembly day, and your child’s class has already left for the assembly, please ensure you instruct your child to go directly to the front office. Jean, our crossing guard, is at the crosswalk until about 9.15am and will ensure children are safely taken across the road after the siren has sounded.
Smart Watches at School
Students are not required to have a phone or smartwatch in school. If a parents needs to contact his/her child during the school day, this contact will be made through the front office.
Students who choose to bring their phones into school and/or wear a smartwatch must acknowledge that the school will accept no responsibility for loss/theft or damage to the phone/smartwatch. Smartwatches worn to school must be turned off.
Supervision of Students on School Grounds After Hours
We strongly remind parents that students should not be on the school grounds out of school hours, unless accompanied by an adult. School staff cannot be held responsible for the safety of the students outside school hours.
In line with WA Government advice that Students and staff who are unwell should stay at home, we are asking all parents to keep their children at home if they show signs of cold or flu-like symptoms. If students become unwell during the school day we will contact parents to collect their child. Students and staff should not return to school until they are completely well or have clearance from a medical practitioner.
Health Conditions & Allergies
It is the parent’s responsibility to periodically check medications at school (eg. Epipens, Ventolin inhalers etc) to ensure they are within their use by date.
Upon enrolment, if a child has a health condition or allergy (eg. diabetes, seizures, asthma, anaphylaxis etc) parents fill out a Student Health Care Summary form and an action plan is written. At the start of each year, the action plan is updated. Please contact the front office if you are unsure whether your child has a current action plan in place and if they require one.
For the safety of all children please do not pull into the school driveway and reverse out. There could be children walking behind your car. During school hours the car park is not a drop off or pick up area.
Updating School Records
If your address, telephone number or email address has changed, please contact the school office.
Upon enrolment, parents decide whether to give consent for their child’s name, photo or work to be published in school newsletters, school related activities, promotional material for the Department of Education and articles for the West Australian and community newspapers. This consent continues for your child while enrolled at our school. If at any stage you want to change the permission status then you will need to notify the office in writing of this request.
