If you require more information on this phone Claire 021 244 5415.

PARKING
We have asked several times for parents NOT to park across gateways to pick up and drop off children, both before and after school as well as lunchtime. We have the safety of the children to consider and were disappointed at the number of people who park vehicles in inappropriate places. In future we will be recording vehicle registration numbers and reporting them to the police. The safety of children is paramount.

DPS NETBALL
CO-ORDINATOR
We are looking for some one to take charge of the DPS netball teams. It involves sorting of teams and handing out the uniforms etc. Please phone the office if you are interested.

ROAD PATROL CROSSINGS
These crossings are there for the safety of the children so please encourage the children to use them. Also no parking is allowed on the yellow lines near the crossings as this impairs the vision for the children doing the road patrol and looking out for oncoming vehicles.
