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.
Cheers

AFTER SCHOOL
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.

BUS TRAVEL
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.
