Sharing of Birthday cakes

Dear Families,

There has been some confusion around students sharing birthday cakes and cupcakes at school.

The current Department of Education guidelines state:

 ‘Current health advice limits the sharing of food from student to student. Food may only be brought to school for special events such as birthdays, if it’s wrapped in individual wrapping – for example, if a student brings in a bag of individually wrapped chocolate or snacks (ie, freddo frogs or small lolly bags). Birthday cakes and food sharing will not be allowed. Schools and CFC’s are able to continue to share food prepared on-site subject to adhering to the strict hygiene requirements in place.’  (publicdocumentcentre.education.tas.gov.au)

We thank you for your understanding.

Student Bus Fare Increase - January 2022

State Growth have advised that from 1 January 2022, the student bus fare will be $1.90 for a single trip. Students who pay the fare using a 10-trip ticket will still be entitled to a 20 per cent discount, bringing the cost of the fare down to $1.52 per trip. The cost of a 10-trip ticket will be $15.20.

Working with Vulnerable People Card

Dear Families,

Current Education Department Policy requires that all volunteers at the school – including in the classroom, on an excursion, in the canteen or at a fundraising event – must hold a Working with Vulnerable People Card (WWVP). If you do not currently have a card and would like to help at the school, we recommend you apply now – the process is easy and costs $19.80 for volunteers for 3 years. Please visit https://bit.ly/2Xs06Im to apply.

The school office needs to keep a copy of all cards, so once you get one, or if you already have a card and haven't supplied a copy to the school office, please can you either email a scan or photograph of the card to : blackmans.bay.primary@education.tas.gov.au or drop into the office and a staff member can take a copy of the card. Remember when your card expires to supply a copy of the renewed card to the school office. 

COVID-19 Check-in App

Dear Families,

Welcome back for Term 3.  Following on from a direction from the Tasmanian Government, we now have some changed arrangements in place for parents and carers when visiting schools.   

You will now need to check in using the Check-in TAS app when entering school buildings; this includes classrooms, the office or the canteen. However you don’t need to check-in when dropping off and picking up. If you are not entering the school building.

Students are also NOT required to check-in, these arrangements only apply to adults.

We have posters displayed in and around the school site with the QR code to use for checking in. 

For those who do not have a smart phone and need to manually check-in, please come to the school office for assistance. 

We appreciate your support in ensuring we are doing the right thing.  Let’s continue to do all we can to keep our schools safe.

Della Wells
