“Children’s Crossings are Cool”

  1. A children’s crossing is a legal crossing when two flags are in place.
  2. Children and adults who are crossing at a children’s crossing must comply with the supervisor’s directions.
  3. You must always stand behind the yellow line.
  4. Never follow the children’s crossing supervisor out onto the crossing – WAIT! THEY MUST GO OUT FIRST, WHEN THEY HAVE BLOWN THEIR WHISTLE (2 SHORT BLASTS) IT IS SAFE TO CROSS.
  5. DO NOT ride bikes across the crossing, bounce a ball, fight, muck around or run – WALK QUICKLY AND SAFELY.
  6. ALWAYS stay within the lines of crossing and walk in front of the supervisor (never behind them).
  7. The children’s crossing supervisor will always wait until it is safe before they walk out and blow their whistle.
  8. Cars are NOT allowed to park on the crossing. If the area is not clear you must pull up behind the white line and wait till you have clearance before proceeding.
  9. Always be alert and listen to what your children’s crossing supervisor says.
  10.  It is ILLEGAL to double-park outside a school – you will be caught.
  11. REMEMBER ALWAYS CROSS AT THE CHILDREN’S CROSSING WHEN IT IS IN OPERATION. 

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.

Early Dismissal – Friday 27th March 2020 (Final day of Term 1)

The students will be dismissed at 2.30 pm on Friday 27th March 2020

House Cross Country – Friday 27th March 2020 (Final day of Term 1)

The House Cross Country will occur during periods 3 and 4 on the final day of Term 1. All students are to wear their full sport uniform as we expect all students to participate. If there are students, who for particular reasons, cannot participate, we ask that parents write a note explaining their child’s situation and inability to participate. These students will assist with the organisation of the event.

Parking and Speed Limits

We would like to remind parents that the speed limits during designated times around schools is 40 km/h. We would also like to encourage parents to follow the parking regulations stipulated around the school, in particular the area near the Dandenong Valley SDS and the staff car park. The area around the school is very busy, both before and after school, and the ongoing support of all parents is greatly appreciated.
