HATS PLEASE – Let’s be Sun smart!

HATS PLEASE – Let’s be Sun smart!
All students must wear a hat in term 4.
The hat needs to be part of our school uniform, navy and preferably have a broad rim.
This is in line with our School Sun Smart Policy.
Please ensure your child’s hat is clearly named.
If children do not wear a hat then they must go under the shade area.


Back of school.
Parking at Pick up time- 3:15pm – Back of the School.
As you are aware there are some major building works happening in the middle of the school, we can’t wait to see our new landscaped area. Consequently traffic flow of pedestrian children out of school and cars is now more congested.
To help keep the back exit of the school safe, please:
 Obey traffic parking restrictions in Cypress Ave (There is a No Standing zone 3-4pm) Council have patrolled and fined people in the past.
 Park in the Car Park and wait along Cypress Ave for your child.
 Park in 10th Street and collect your child from Cypress Ave. (A patrolled children’s crossing is available on 10th St)
 Park on Ontario Ave and organise for your child to exit from the Oval gate on Ontario Ave.
As a part of our Healthy Schools initiative, we are also planning to have a Drop and Stride zone at Mansell Reserve (This has been delayed due to COVID). We encourage families to think of this as a great alternative to get some exercise and transport safely to school.
Front of school
Please ensure you park in the designated parks. DO NOT park in the school driveway.
Please respect other drivers and be very, very careful of our children.

Recently, we have been using a Scrunchable Plastics tub at lunch and recess! It’s looking very full. Students can put scrunchable plastics (plastic packaging that crinkles up) inside the tub instead of the bin to be recycled. Each week, the tub is emptied into the Recycle bins at Woolworths and/or Coles.

Friendship Zone /RREP

Welcome back Westies, we hope you had an amazing break! We have been looking forward to seeing our Prep, Ones and Twos in the friendship zone. Our friendship zone is all about making friends and having fun at lunch time, we love it! We have noticed a lot of acts of kindness this week and it has been super to see. We have been thinking hard for new ideas and activities that we can do and have finally been able to start using them this term! We have activities such as skipping, chalk drawing, puppets, mindfulness colouring, dress ups and more. It has been great to see everyone’s happy faces back at school. By Viktorya & Brooke
