Reminder – Next week is walking to school week

Fri May 10 03:50pm

Walking to School 2 Week Pizza Challenge

Walking to School 2 Week Pizza Challenge will take place in Week 3 and Week 4. The class that has the most walkers over the two weeks will win $100 worth of pizza for lunch.

Students can earn points by walking all the way or part of the way to school. The simplest way is to walk all the way to school.

However, if they need to come some of the way by car, then there are two drop-off points.
1 – On the corner of Hugh Green Drive and Bundoran Way, from where they walk up Hugh Green Drive and in the front gates.
2 – On the corner of Spencer Road and Maidstone Place, from where they walk along Spencer Road and in the top gate at the drop-off zone.

Students who are dropped off at the drop-off zone, or in front of school will not earn house points.

They will be met close to the gates by House Leaders who will give them stickers to add to their class chart.

Walking to school is a great way for students to get fit, and talk with their friends. It will also free up the streets around the school by taking some cars off the road which will improve the environment for all of our regular walkers. 


本学期步行上学周将持续两周 – 第3周和第4周。在这两周内步行上学人数最多的班级将赢得价值$100的比萨午餐!


1 – 位于Hugh Green Drive和Bundoran Way的拐角处,从那里步行至Hugh Green Drive并通过学校正门进入学校。

2 – 位于Spencer Road和Maidstone Place的拐角处,从那里沿着Spencer Road步行,并通过上下车区域(drop off point) 的侧门进入学校。


House Leaders会在每个门口迎接学生,并派发贴纸以添加到他们班级的积分表上。

ROAD PATROL HELPERS REQUIRED – Monday Afternoon and Wednesday Morning Parent Help Required.

Tue Apr 30 04:56pm

We are currently looking for adults who would like to help once a week supervise our school patrol – either on a Wednesday morning from 8:25 – 8:50 am or a Monday afternoon from 2:45 – 3:10pm. You don’t need to have a child doing road patrol or even in Year 6, just a willingness to help.
Each duty patrol is typically made up of two students (with one designated the leader) and a supervising adult.
We couldn’t do this job without you!
If you would like to help please email

Thank you!!
