School Concert Survey

This year our school concert will be a musical entitled, “Aladdin Trouble”. Last year we held our school concert at St Edward’s College at East Gosford, which allowed our whole school community to come together in one venue with ample room for the children to not only participate on a large stage but also be present in the hall with the whole audience when not on stage. We are mindful, however, that the distance to East Gosford was of concern to some parents. Therefore, we are again giving you the opportunity to vote on your preferred venue for our 2016 school concert.

Please indicate your preferred venue by voting below, with only one vote per family. This survey will close on Tuesday 31st May at 3.00pm      Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7ZBJZ5K

SAFETY ISSUES

Parents, can you please be vigilant about walking safely to and from our school grounds. We need to use the crossings and paths for safe movement to and from school. We have many children at our school and we need to ensure SAFETY at all times. Please model the correct behaviour for our children.

NEW: SCOOTERS AND SKATEBOARDS- are not allowed to be used to and from school. It is a new directive in our Diocese. If your child is riding to school they will also need a permission note.   The bike needs to be road worthy and child MUST wear a protective helmet.

Disable Parking

Please DO NOT park in our designated “Disable Parking Spaces” if you do not have a RTA sticker.
