Mobile phone use by students in schools survey

Dear Families,

The Tasmanian Association of State School Organisations (TASSO) regularly provide feedback to the Minister for Education and the Department of Education.

 A current topic generating a lot of interest is the use of mobile phones and other student owned devices in school. We are asking all parents, students, other family members, school staff interested members of the public to complete our survey which can be found on the following link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mobile_devices_in_schools

Our school policy is;

Our students may bring their phones to school as they may need them before and after school but they are to stay in their bags and not to be used during the school day.

Regards,
Della Wells
Principal

Pokemon Cards

Dear Families,

We have noticed in the past few weeks that students have been bringing Pokemon Cards to School. We do not allow trading at school and strongly suggest that all cards stay at home to alleviate any issues. It is very difficult for class teachers to sort out problems regarding ownership of the cards, if they arise. 

Regards,
Della Wells

Communication from Families to their child

In an endeavour to minimise interruptions to our classes, we are introducing a new system of delivering messages to students/classes.

Starting tomorrow Tuesday 24th July, 1st day of term 3, we ask if families need a message to be given to their child, they please contact the school office prior to 2.30pm.

Classes will be picking messages up from the office every day at this time.

If families contact the school after 2.30pm we cannot guarantee being able to deliver the message to your child.

We thank you for your co-operation.

School car parks

Just a friendly reminder to families  re our school car parks.

The car park on Roslyn Avenue is primarily our staff car park between the hours of 8.15am to 3.15pm. This car park is not to be used for before school drop off and after school pick up. There are 3 parks near the school office which can be used  for students late arrivals or early departures and for picking students up who may be unwell or going to an appoinment.

Opal Drive is primarily the car park used for parents picking up and dropping students off before and after school. Please be aware that the drop off zone is for parents to quickly pull in and their child to exit the car but is not to be used for parking and leaving the car unattended.

Thank you for your cooperation.
