Please park in marked bays only and for the safety of children and pedestrians consider your speed on entry and exit . Please also have consideration for nearby residents and do not obstruct their driveways.

Smoke Free Environment
Our building and grounds are a designated smoke free environment. Smoking is prohibited.
Please note there are no dogs allowed on the site, with the exception of guide dogs.
We teach children what are expected behaviours. Each year, in September when the children move to a new class, the children contribute and discuss the behaviours they want in their classrooms. This agreement is shared with parents.
We work hard to teach children the following values:
- To be kind to each other at all times
- To always be polite to everyone
- To keep our building and grounds tidy and to look after our equipment
- Always walk
- Talk quietly
Children earn stickers for good work and behaviour, certificates and prizes are awarded in assembly for multiples of 10 stickers.
Prescribed medication can be administered by the office staff on request, please call into the office for further details.
Asthma medication is kept in classrooms, this must be clearly marked with your child's name and dosage.
Occasionally we do have outbreaks of headlice, please check your child's hair regularly and inform us if headlice are discovered. If headlice are noticed on a child during school time, parents will be contacted to collect their children to treat their hair straight away. Provided no live lice are remaining children may return to school.
Please ensure all long hair is tied up during school time, bobbles available from the office.
