Parent Handbook

Additional Information

Money

Children must not leave money in bags, desks, drawers or pigeonholes.  If a child is too young to carry money safely on his/her person they should hand it to their class teacher for safekeeping.

Valuable rings, watches and other such expensive items should NOT be brought to school. Staff cannot guarantee their safety.

Excursions

Strict new guidelines for excursions, in particular water based excursions, are now in place.  Money for excursions/incursions is to be paid to the class teacher at the start of the day – not to the school office.

Parent Involvment

Parents are welcomed into our school to assist teachers in a voluntary capacity. However, all parents and visitors to the school are required by Education Department regulations to sign a “Confidential Declaration” form. They then, of course, work under the direction of the classroom teachers involved.

Under the Education Department’s Duty of Care Policy, parents and/or children are not to be in rooms without a teacher or teacher assistant present, unless in a voluntary working capacity.
