New uniform items available from Monday 4 December

Exciting news! We have been working with PSW to update and improve our uniform. The sports polo has been given a fresh new design and the school hat is now purple and created in a lighter, more breathable fabric. A special sports top in a fabulous sublimated design has been introduced for our Year Six children and a black beanie with embroidered logo will be introduced in time for the winter months.

This new items will be phased in throughout 2018, so there is no urgency for families to rush out and make these purchases immediately. 

 

CHANGES TO PARKING ON SILKY OAK DRIVE

City of Casey has changed the ‘no parking’ zone at the front of the school on SIlky Oak Drive. This zone now extends along the fenceline, from the end of the school path to the intersection at Robusta Avenue.

This means that between 8.00am and 9.00am, and between 3.00pm and 4.00pm, you can only stop for 2 minutes in that area if you are picking up or dropping off children. You musut stay within 3 metres of your vehicle.

If you stop in, or partly in, an area showing a no parking sign and you are not picking up or dropping off passengers or goods, you are considered to be parked and can be fined. This is the case even if you stay with your vehicle.

City of Casey will have parking officers around our school, mornings and afternoons, for the next few weeks to help people understand what they can and can’t do when driving, parking and picking up or dropping off children. They are working very closely with the school to help us improve safety for children on the roads.
