Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday!
I would like to express my appreciation to the school executive, all school staff and parents for striving to offer our deserving students the very best education beyond the core curriculum. Our dedicated staff without reservation provides many areas of support and co-curricula opportunities. The P&C continues to offer this school many quality services other schools are unable to fulfil.
May everyone have a safe and happy Christmas season with a quote from Dr Seuss, "Maybe Christmas", the Grinch thought, "doesn't come from a store". Experience a wonderful start to a successful New Year. To all, enjoy the time with your family and friends.  - Mr Greg McLaren, Principal,  JP  B.Ed, M. Ed, M.A.C.E.

IMPORTANT ROAD SAFETY REMINDER
FOR PARENTS AND CARERS THESE HOLIDAYS

 As the school holidays approach, it is important to remember when walking near roads, on footpaths, near driveways and in car parks always:
  •  hold your child's hand. Until they are at least 8 years old children need to hold an adult's hand. Until they at least 10, children should be closely supervised by an adult and hold hands when crossing the road.
  •  talk to your child about road safety. Talk about how to be safe when near roads. Be a good role model.
  • point out road safety dangers and differences in new environments. This is especially  important when on holidays in different surroundings. Roads, footpaths and pedestrian may look different in holiday areas. 

The best way to keep your child safe on or near the road is to hold their hand.

Talk with your child daily about road safety.

Remind other adults and carers about this too.

You can find out more at Transport for NSW.

Have a safe holiday break!

 
Summer Holiday Fun

Pleasures Of Free Play

Book your children into one of our fun-filled camp next school holidays. Your children will be kept busy and active while learning new skills and making new friends. You'll have peace of mind knowing your children are safe and well looked after.
For details, visit Sport and Recreation website:

Allowing free time for children to play on their own, making up games and activities, can help kids to be comfortable in their own company, teach them how to cope with boredom and, importantly, foster their imagination.
