SUPERVISION AND PARKING
A reminder to parents and carers are NOT to use the Staff Car Park, or the disabled parks, regardless of the time of day. It is NOT to be used as a quick drop off or collection point.
This includes after Choir on a Wednesday
Please make sure you do your civic duty to follow the road laws and rules. This includes parking correctly in the signed areas, and completing 3 point turns in the middle in the intersection!
We also urge parents to please remember to be patient and polite when using the Oval Carpark, and be good role models for all the children witnessing their behaviour. With over 800 families, drop off and collection times will be busy and you will need to plan your time accordingly.

Year 3 Village Requests
Earn house points for your house and help us to be sustainable
We want to REPURPOSE your old newspapers, REUSE your egg cartons and to COLLECT your unwanted seedling pots from Woolies.
We use your old newspapers to line our guinea pig and rabbit cages and to tear up and soak for the worms.
We have thousands of worms in the village – they consume all the village food scraps – but we need newspapers as well.
Woolworths Discovery Garden seedling pots
Thank you to all families sending these in. We are sorting them all into planting times so that they can be used in the village.
Pottery Pots and Planters
We are also happy to accept any unwanted pottery pots or planters.
We have enough plastic ones for the time being.
The Year 3 Village Team
