SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

 15th  January 2015

 From the Principal’s desk:

 Extra curricular activities have now started and most classes are full. Any enquiries to the office. Any outstanding monies should be paid directly to the extra curricular teacher.


Thank you for ensuring that dogs are kept outside the yellow zigzag lines at the back gate.

 Be on time

We have improved this week…but we still have lots of families who are not in school early enough. Please keep up the efforts to get here on time. The gate is open a few minutes before 8.30am to allow everyone to get to the classrooms for 8.30am, the formal start of school. I expect that everyone should be in the classroom and well ready for the start of formal lessons at 8.50am. Class teachers will remind parents of children who need to be in earlier over the next week or two.


All absences from school must be accounted for. Please ring the school or email the office ( on the first morning of absence.  For absences longer than one day, please send a note or an email, so that we have a written record.  There are blank notes in the homework journal that can also be used for this purpose.

 The Green Schools committee is back in action – watch this space for news of our latest competition ….
