Wednesday 5th December is the last day of school banking. Banking will commence on the first Wednesday of the new year.
There has been a delay with some of the rewards from earlier in the term. These will be delivered when school resumes in 2019.
Banking P&F Fundraising
The P&F receives bonuses from the bank based on 1) the number of deposits made and 2) the number of students participating. This means a deposit of 50c a week will help raise money for the school.
It would be great to have more children participating in banking in 2019. If you would like to join or have any questions about school banking please contact our Banking Coordinator, Renee Barker, at email@example.com.
Absence Calls / Notes / Emails
Please note, teachers do not get to sit down and check their emails first thing in the morning, so if you have emailed the teacher regarding your child’s absence, they may not receive the information until later in the day. Therefore, please do not be upset if you receive an SMS or phone call from the Office to clarify the absence.
For this reason, a phone call to the ABSENTEE LINE is a more efficient way of communicating an absence than an email. Please note also, a SIGNED NOTE also needs to be provided to the teacher on your child’s return to school. The Department of Education Services has confirmed that whilst an SMS or phone message is NOT a substitute for a signed note when reporting absences, an email meeting the following criteria can be accepted:
- the full name of the student
- the class / roll group of the student
- the reason for the absence
- the full name of the parent/guardian at the end of the message (the ‘from’ email address is not sufficient).
