Just a reminder that if you are volunteering in the Prep Unit and/or joining us on excursions then a working with children check is required. If and when you have one can you please let us know and take the WWCC into the school office for our office ladies to take a photocopy of. It is a legal requirement that everyone has one before working with children in our school.  The following is the link for steps to require one. https://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au
Thank you for understanding.

Fruit Time: The Children are to bring either fresh fruit or vegetables
NOT dried sultanas, jelly, fruit juice etc. Smaller apples are better for the Preps and cutting it up helps too. Other suggestions - Cut up carrot, celery, capsicum......   

Lunch and snacks: The Children eat half of their main lunch before recess and the other half at lunchtime. Any other food needs to be healthy snacks and food that sustains them throughout the day. Sweet snacks, fruit juices, flavoured milks etc are not encouraged. We are helping the children to work out what healthy foods are and why we eat them.

Preps wear Sports uniform each MONDAY and FRIDAY.

SPECIALIST SUBJECTS - Preps have ART and MUSIC on  WEDNESDAY morning. Your child needs to have a well fitting art smock for Art; please make sure it is CLEARLY NAMED.

THURSDAY is Returning Library book Day ready to borrow each FRIDAY.


FRIDAY is lunch order day. If you choose to have an order for your child, orders must be placed in the tub on a THURSDAY morning only or as an online order by Thursday 8:30am. Please be mindful about the amount ordered (not too much). Already we have had Children unable to eat their lunch order and our policy is that if they are unable to eat it all, they don't buy anything with their tuck shop money!

If you choose for your child to have spending money please put money in a named purse/ envelope /snap lock bag in the front of their Reader Cover. Remind them they are not to touch this money until they are taken as a group to the Tuck Shop. Preps purchase from the Tuck Shop before the rest of the school. 

Suggestion: having a lunch order OR spending money is usually enough - not both (sometimes children want to leave their lunch to go to Tuck Shop). Not all children have tuck shop.

ASC -Remember to place your child's name on laminated sheet in classrooms for After School Care (ASC) and keep it updated. Thanks
