The main entrance to the school near the administration building has been installed with an electronic pedestrian and carpark gate. These will be fully operational by Monday Week 8 (27 November). From this date we will introduce new procedures for our school gates. This will include:
- From 8.00 am - 9:30 am each day all gates will be open and students and parents will be able to enter the school as they normally would.
- Gates will be closed between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm each day. If you wish to come into the school during these hours you will need to enter via the pedestrian gate at the front of the school outside the administration building. This gate has an intercom system and staff will open the gate for you.
- From 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm each day all gates will be open and students and parents will be able to enter and exit the school as they normally would.
Over the coming weeks we will be beginning our planning for classes for 2024. The needs of all students are considered when placing students in classes. One aspect of this is friendship groupings. In order to support all students and assist in class planning, students will be asked to write down the names of 5 friends. When teachers are placing students in classes we will ensure that all students have at least one of these friends in a class with them. Students will be told which class they are in on Day 1 Term 1 2024.
Next Tuesday students will participate in a whole school transition activity. This activity will be an opportunity for students to spend some time in the classrooms and main playground areas for their 2024 year group. Students will be shown where they line up in the morning, where their bags will go, where they will eat their lunch as well as the main learning spaces for their year group. Students will not necessarily be in the classroom that they visit during the day the following year. The purpose for the activity is to support students in understanding their new routines for the start of the 2024 school year.
