New Student Collection Information

Dear Parents / Guardians,

Thank you all for your commitment and patience when picking up your children each afternoon. The organisation behind this was challenging, and we thank those parents who took the time to give us constructive feedback.

Starting from next Tuesday (9th June) parents will be able to wait outside classrooms again. We will not be permitting entry to classrooms just yet (hopefully next term!) and therefore all classroom teachers will walk their entire class out to the designated meeting point by 2:55pm. At these points we will be insisting on physical distancing, particularly in the courtyard. If parents have multiple children, students will wait with their teachers until collected. Could all parents please wait in the following spaces:

  • Kinder: Outside the kinder gate on the oval.
  • Prep White: Outside the Henley Street side door
  • Prep/Blue: In the courtyard, outside the canteen
  • Prep/1: Outside, in front of the library
  • 1 Blue: Outside in between the GP hall and the office block
  • 1 White: On GP hall side of the courtyard space
  • 1 Blue: In middle of courtyard space
  • 2 White: On bottom side of canteen/courtyard steps
  • 2 Blue: In front of the skip bins
  • Grade 3 White: Directly outside the classroom in between the grade3 and grade 5/6 building
  • Grade 3 Blue: Outside the classroom door facing Henley Street oval
  • Grade 5/6 Blue: Outside the door facing the netball courts
  • Grade 5/6 Navy: Outside the door facing the swings
  • Grade 4 White: Outside the door at the bottom of the stairs
  • Grade 4 Blue: Outside the classroom door closest to the swing side In between the Music and Classroom space
  • Grade 5/6 Blue: Outside the classroom

After School Care, bus students and those walking home or meeting parents offsite will be dismissed from here at 2:55pm. The morning drop off procedures will remain the same for the rest of this term.

Again, thank you for your support around these organisational challenges. We will continue to do the best we can to keep you and your children safe and connected during these uncertain times.

Kind regards,

Kel Innis

Thank you, from our Principal

Dear parents,

Thank you so much for your patience and support around the new routines for pick up and drop off. This morning went exceptionally well and all students began the day happy and engaged. This afternoon the overwhelming feedback was that students knew where to be and parents were able to find their children quickly and safely.

A couple points to remember for the rest of the week:

  • Students can enter through either of the gates in the morning but Kinders must enter through Henley unless an older sibling is taking them to class.
  • If students walk home from school, catch a bus or meet their parents offsite they will be dismissed at 2:55pm from the oval.
  • If students attend afterschool care they will be dismissed from the oval at 2:55pm to walk to the GP hall. This excludes Kinder students who will be picked up from their class lines by the OSHC educators.
  • Could all parents who are waiting to collect their children please stand in front of the class line on the oval to ensure that the class teachers can see you clearly and leave school grounds immediately.
  • If you need to pick up your children early or drop them to school late please sign them in/out through the front office.

This is a huge learning curve for all of us, however, I was extremely proud of our school community today for embracing these changes. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Kind regards,

Kel Innis
Principal
