School trips and activities are included in the school fees. A range
of activities and trips are organised during the year to support and
enhance the delivery of our classroom programmes.
Parents give permission for students to attend trips outside the
school by signing the "Permission for Excursions” on the Student Data
Form each year. Where students travel away from the school, parents will
be notified through the school newsletter or a separate letter; when
the trip is occurring, the time children will leave and return to school
and the mode of transport. Should a parent not wish their child to
attend a particular trip they must contact the child’s teacher.
All children are expected to participate in class swimming
lessons as part of the Health and Physical Education Curriculum. Water
confidence and water safety skills are the main emphasis of the school
All students are required to wear bathing caps. A note is required if
students cannot swim for health reasons. It is vital that students do
not swim for two weeks following a bout of diarrhoea.
Keys to the swimming pool are available for the school community
during the summer months. A notice will appear in the school newsletter
in November or December advertising the availability of keys.
For health reasons all children are asked to bring a t-shirt and shorts
to change into for physical education and sport. It is compulsory for
Years 4, 5 & 6 students to wear the school sports uniform. This can
be purchased from the school uniform shop.
Parents of children taking piano lessons from Mrs Roke during school
hours must provide a letter to the Principal stating the day and time of
the lessons. Mrs Roke may be contacted on ph: 620 4530.
