TOMORROW Friday 21st March 2014

In the final week of term one we will be operating on a modified timetable as part of planning week. Instead of students participating in their specialist programs throughout the course of the week, these classes will be timetabled to occur on one day, thereby allowing all of the teachers at each level to be released. When teachers are released for the day during planning week, they will spend the entire day working collaboratively to plan an overview of the curriculum program for next term. This approach to our term by term curriculum planning, helps to ensure a heightened degree of consistency in our program delivery across all levels of the school.

Please do not hesitate to make contact with the school if you have any concerns about your childs wellbeing at school. Whilst our school context is an overwhelming positive one, we do have minor infractions & tensions that occur from time to time with students. In most instances, these matters are quickly resolved at school and where necessary the school will make contact with parents to communicate ongoing issues or matters of more serious concern. When matters arise between students, we strongly advise parents not to approach parents about these concerns. When this occurs, we find that the situation becomes more intense and interactions between parents can become quite fractured. We implore parents to not phone, email, text or confront other parents in the playground about behavioural matters at school. We are privileged to be part of a wonderful community school at Tootgarook Primary School and we will continue to work hard to ensure that school is a positive experience for all members of our school community. Thank you in anticipation of your support on this important matter.

Bikes & Scooters

Many children ride bikes, skateboards and scooters to school each day. All bikes and scooters must be stored in the designated areas. Please ensure your child has a chain and a lock. All children who ride a bike or scooter must wear a helmet which is a requirement by the Government . The school regularly reminds all children about wearing helmets for their safety. All bikes, scooters, skateboards, rip sticks and helmets must be labelled, with your childs name and class. Children are reminded they must walk their bike, scooter, skateboard or rip stick to and from the school gates. No bikes are to be brought through the school buildings and we request, where possible, that Scooters are also not walked through the building.
