School Traffic

As you will be aware, there are ongoing concerns for the safety of all, as children are dropped off and picked up by their parents in cars, near the school gates on Jeffery Street, Highcliff Road and the Memorial Gates by the ‘Teachers Only’ parking area.  Of particular concern are those who park on yellow lines and endanger themselves and others. Number plates will be relayed to the DCC traffic department and illegal parkers can expect communication from them. The safety of all children is paramount.

Animal Care Group



 The ‘Animal Care’ Discovery Friday group had a very informative session with Phoebe and Neevis on the 17th of August.  They enjoyed learning how a Veterinary Nurse examines the pets that are brought in to the clinic and especially working through the process themselves.

The PTA have an important role in the function and resourcing of the school. They have worked tirelessly to support many initiatives within the school, such as the environmental garden, playscape development, Discovery Friday, games in classrooms, technology purchases and the School Fair - among others.

They would like to extend an invitation to all parents to join their meetings and the organisation. They assure all prospective members not to be put off by the thought of highly demanding tasks: parents contribute only as their time and means permit and new parents are supported by current PTA members to help with events.
