Senior and Middle syndicate Multi Culture Group will be performing at
The Warehouse at 1.30pm, Thursday 3rd June (tomorrow). All children to
have their black shorts please. If girls can have their hair already put
up it will save me heaps of time. Please make sure your child’s
permission form is signed and returned for them to leave the school. No
permission slip signed by parent and returned means no going to the performance.
PLEASE NOTE: The dates for the Talent Quest auditions have been changed
due to other commitments on these dates. Revised dates are, Junior Syndicate—10th
Middle Syndicate—17th June
Senior Syndicate—24th June
There have been a number of children left to play on the school playground
unsupervised in recent weeks. We would like to remind parents that all
children should leave the school immediately after school closes and that
the school does not provide after school care and children should not
be left alone in the school grounds.
The bus service only provides for children that regularly travel on the
bus, any extra children (friends) cannot travel on the bus and you will
have to make arrangements to transport them yourselves.
Also a reminder to parents that if your child is not traveling on the
bus to phone the school or send a note to your child’s teacher.
Often we get conflicting stories from children who say they should/not
be going on the bus, because they have overheard a conversation at home
which has not been finalised. This puts us in an awkward position of whether
or not to send them on the bus. As you can appreciate we don’t want
to send a child home, if no one is there, and we don’t like to hold
a child at school only to find out that they should have been on a bus.
