Bicycle Helmets and Scooters

It is imperative that we have parent support with regard to bicycle helmets. All students who ride a bicycle to school MUST wear a helmet. Parents will be contacted immediately if a student is riding a bicycle without a helmet.

Students riding scooters to school must also bring a padlock so they can be secured safely in the bicycle shed.

Fountain Gate Primary School

We ask for parents to reinforce to their older siblings who attend Fountain Gate SC who collect younger siblings from Fountain Gate PS that they wait for their younger brothers or sisters outside their classroom and not at the front gate.

School Shoes

Traditional lace-up leather, polishable school shoes are required. Black runners are not acceptable. Girls may wear T Bar shoes which have a solid sole and leather uppers, shoes which are flimsy and similar to ballet slippers will not be permitted. Girls are required to have the buckles secured.  If they are broken they must be repaired or replaced. We have a number of areas which require feet to be fully covered e.g. Science labs, Technology, Home Economics for safety reasons. Note: Casual shoes such as Vans which are sold as school shoes do not meet our School Uniform Policy. 

Staff Car Park

We ask for parents support by NOT using the staff car parks to drop off or pick up their children. Please use the parking lanes in Josephine Avenue or Victoria Road.
