Yummy Apple Stickers
Please continue to collect yummy stickers as any collected now will help next year’s sports gear fundraising. If you need collection sheets please ask at the office.
School Uniform Hats
Unfortunately we have not yet received our school hats so in the interim children can wear any hat. Children without hats will have to play in the shaded areas during playtimes.
We will advise you of the cost and when the hats are expected to arrive as soon as possible. School hats are not a compulsory uniform item but please see below as to what hats are acceptable under our policy.
School Uniform hats will be sand coloured and one size fits all.
Students can wear black sandals rather than black socks and shoes during the summer. A hat is compulsory if your child is in the playground.
Our policy states : “require students to wear hats which protect the face, neck and ears, whenever they are outside and involved in school activities. Students at school without a hat must remain in an allocated shaded area or inside at break times. Hats must be broad-brimmed (min 7.5cm), or legionnaire/bucket hats (min 6cm brim, deep crown). These hats provide significant protection to the eyes”.
Sunhats are expected to be available from the uniform shop from week three of term 4.
Open Days/Try Days
In term four we will have Open Days/Try Days every Tuesday for anybody who would like to see the school in action and prospective students. If you know anybody who is interested in the school please encourage them to come and check us out.
