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 Our school song which the students sing at assembly each week incorporates our key values: We are the kids from Melton South. We are the best without a doubt. We love to learn, run and play, School is great in a special way. There’s tolerance, care and honesty, Fairness, respect and responsibility. Co-operation and when the day is done Fulfilment through learning is really fun. SCHOOL COUNCIL ELECTIONS: School Council elections are now open. Nomination forms are available at the office. The completed form must be returned to the office before the end of the school day on Monday 18th February. There are 4 parent vacancies, if the number of nominations exceed the number of vacancies we will have an election. I would like to thank the members of the 2018 School Council for their ongoing commitment to MSPS. ALPHA SHOW: On Monday the 29th of April students will have the opportunity to attend a production of the SNOW QUEEN at school. The cost of this incursion was not part of the 2019 subject contributions. Notes will be sent home later this term and the cost will be $10.00 per student. The show includes full lighting, props and costumes. The company has performed a number of shows at our school and students and staff are always engaged and enthralled with the performance. SCHOOL HATS: It is compulsory for all students to wear a school hat in term 1. 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 CROSSINGS: Students and parents are reminded to always use the school crossings around our school. Please do not cross at the speed humps and only use the designated supervised crossings. 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. SMOKING BANNED ON SCHOOL GROUNDS AND AT SCHOOL ENTRANCES: Just a reminder that smoking is banned on school grounds and within 4 metres of any school entrance. We seek your co-operation in this matter. EARLY ARRIVALS: I have noticed that many students arrive at school before 8am. There is no supervision for the children at this time. Supervision in the yard begins at 8:35am. Even though many teachers are at school before 8am they are in the classroom preparing for the day. Many of our students attend the before and after school program at St. Anthony’s across the road. The students are collected at school after school and in the morning bought to the office to be signed in by our office staff. Mrs Marilyn Costigan, Principal
