We are a sun smart school! Term one and four are hat terms. The school hat is compulsory for students to wear every day when outside at school. This includes break times and outdoor learning. Please make sure your child has the school hat to wear, ensure it is named!
What is governance and management?
The board’s role is to ensure that things are done legally, ethically, and in the best interests of our students. We need to thoughtfully set the strategic direction and policies for the school and have many legislative requirements and a wide range of stakeholders to consider.
|Governance (Board)||Management (Principal and school leadership)|
|The What: Designing the future
The Ends: Outcomes to be achieved
Policies: Clarity on what is expected
|The How: Designing how to get there
The Means: Tactics to achieve the end goals
Procedures: Steps to meet the expectations

Calling back Year 4s Dogs
Please can those wonderful Dogs (Pets as I know there were some cats in there too), come back and take part in our Book Week Book Fair. If your child is happy to loan Mrs Apperley their creation, they will be on display amongst books for our ‘Paws To Read’ book Fair. Please can they come back to school and come to the Learning Hub over the next few weeks. It would be great if it could have your child’s name on it somewhere – perhaps on it’s paw or maybe you can create a collar for it. They will be returned to your child Friday 2nd December. Thank you in advance for your support.
This year we are joining the ‘Gumboot Army’ to raise awareness and support this wonderful organisation. We will be wearing our gumboots to school on Friday 4 November for a gold coin donation. From their website, Gumboot Friday is helping with the following: “Government agencies are doing their best, but some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they urgently need. We connect kids with mental health counsellors and practitioners in their region or online, so they can get timely support, without the added stress of how to pay the bill.”
If you missed the close off date we have opened the order for a LAST CHANCE opportunity that will close on the 31st October.
These make unique Christmas gifts for family and friends and are perfect for posting overseas.
