We would like to welcome the following children to Anderson's Bay School.  It is wonderful to have you joining us.

After School Supervision

As school officially finishes at 3pm we ask that students do not re-enter their classrooms or any other school building after this time.  We would ask that students (not part of the after school care programme) leave the school grounds immediately following the 3pm bell.

Please refrain from riding scooters, bikes or skateboards through the school grounds as this becomes a danger for others around.

Environmental Awareness

Dear Parents

At Andy Bay, we promote environmental awareness with the children as our future global citizens.  With this in mind, from Monday 25th February, we are encouraging all children to take any lunchbox rubbish home, if they do not already do so.  This will have a number of benefits:
  1. You will be able to keep track of what they are/are not eating
  2. They become responsible for their own litter and learn where to recycle it at home
Parents/caregivers may prefer to put yoghurt in a named container with a lid, instead of a yoghurt pottle.  At some schools, a small bag for rubbish is also sometimes included. As a team we will also help the children as they transition, we are aware that positive change takes time!

 Welcome to drum lessons in 2019 with Andrew Harray. I have been playing drums for 16 years, but hitting things since I was two. In that time I have played in various bands, orchestras, and even travelled the country on some tours. I love to pass on my passion and skills to anyone who is eager to learn. Drum lessons happen after school on Tuesdays. Send me an email or give me a ring to find out more.

30 minutes individual lesson: $27

20 minutes for young beginners: $18
