Planning for 2020
Oh my gosh it IS that time of year again!! Our transition program for 2020 Foundation students had a big ‘kick start” with Over the Rainbow Day last week. It is always beneficial to receive enrolments early because this enables forward planning to take place. If parents know of any children who will be attending our school for the first time in 2020 please encourage them to enrol as soon as possible. I am more than happy to conduct individual school tours as they provide us with the opportunity to show case the outstanding work done by our dedicated teaching team and marvellous students.
Our reputation, both within and outside our community is very strong. We have been inundated with school tours and, this term, have enrolled eight students in grades across the school.
Safe Driving Practices
To my horror, from my office window last Friday I watched not one, but TWO cars reversing from the top car park on to the Belgrave-Gembrook Road. I could not get over what a dangerous practice this was!
This morning the bus driver could not access the top car park to have our students alight safely because of the number of cars who are beginning to use the car park area as their personal drop off zone. The top car park is not to be used as a drop off area and I respectfully ask that parents abide by this request. If parents continue to ignore the requests for safe, considerate driving around the school it will only be a matter of time before a serious accident occurs.
Please help keep our students safe and all pull together.
EDEC Lightning Premiership
We wish our senior students the very best as they compete against students from other EDEC schools at Worrell Reserve on Monday 17th May 2019. Due to the inclement weather forecast last Wednesday this competition was postponed.
Students will be able to rest and relax next Wednesday, as this is a School Council approved pupil free day.
