STAFF, STUDENTS, PARENTS AND CARERS ALL HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AT MELTON SOUTH PRIMARY SCHOOL. EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE RESPECTED EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO LEARN Parents/carers are reminded that our school values include students, staff and members of the community. Staff members are more than happy to discuss any concerns you may have but you are reminded to do so in a respectful and courteous manner. Unacceptable behaviour or abuse will not be tolerated. BREAKFAST CLUB: Breakfast club operates Tuesday and Thursday between 8:15am and 8:45am, some students are arriving as early as 7:45am. The volunteers are busy preparing breakfast for over 100 students so do not have the time to supervise children at that time. EXTREME WEATHER DAYS: If it is extremely hot we keep the students inside at recess and lunchtime under supervision of staff. All rooms are air conditioned. We encourage all students to bring a bottle of water which they are able to keep on their table. SCHOOL COUNCIL ELECTIONS: We still have 2 parent vacancies on School Council. If you want to know more about the role of School Council please come to the office and collect an information sheet. PARENT CONCERNS: If you have any concerns regarding your child, please make an appointment with your child’s teacher, or at the office if you want to discuss the matter with a member of the Principal team. END Of THE DAY: At the end of the school day teachers are walking students outside to meet their parents/ carers. This is to minimise congestion in the corridors. For example in the grade 1 corridor we have 5 grades with approximately 100 students. They need to be able to access the locker area to their bags. We thank you for your understanding. SCHOOL HATS: It is compulsory for all students to wear a school hat until the end of April. We are an accredited Sun Smart school so if students are not wearing a hat they need to stay in undercover areas during recess and lunchtime. SCHOOL GROUNDS AFTER HOURS: Melton South Primary School grounds are not to be accessed out of school hours without permission. PERSONAL PROPERTY: Personal property is often bought to school by staff, students and visitors. This may include mobile phones, Ipads, bicycles, scooters, electronic games, toys, sporting games, equipment and musical instruments. The Department does not hold insurance for personal property bought to school and it has no capacity to pay for the loss or damage. The bike shed is locked during the day and opened at the end of the day. We would advise children who ride bikes or scooters to school to use a chain and lock for added security. SCHOOL WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR: We are currently in our third year of being part of the School Wide Positive Behaviour training. All classrooms have a learning matrix in their room outlining expected behaviours in learning time, the yard, canteen and toilets. Students receive tokens acknowledging these expected behaviours both in the classroom and in the yard, which they trade in for a prize after reaching a designated number. EVACUATION DRILLS: We have regular fire drills, both internal and external, so in the case of an emergency students are prepared and follow the procedures. Reviews are held after each drill by members of the Occupational Health and Safety team to discuss any issues such as what went well and what may need improvement. Mrs Marilyn Costigan, Principal

SILLY HAT PARADE: To celebrate the end of term 1, we will be holding a Silly Hat Parade at 9.15am on Friday 5th April in the Gym. Students are encouraged to make a hat at home and bring it to school on the day. Hats can reflect an Easter theme or it could be just a ‘Crazy/Silly Hat’ - use your imagination! Parents are welcome to attend this parade. Grade 5 MIND & BODY INCURSION A reminder that $11 payment for this grade 5 incursion is due by next Friday, 8th March.

CSEF CSEF (Camp, Sport, Excursion Fund) is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.
