|Student Drop Off

staff are coming and going – we can’t see children behind our cars and are
not expecting you to walk or drive through.
Don't stop in the Bus/handicap zone in front of
school – we know you are in a hurry but please don't block access for our
special needs students.
Choose safety over convenience! Please read our Parking notice.
|Start Smart Stay Safe
We have taken up the Start Smart Stay Safe (S4) Citizenship program. It has
four cornerstones: Significance, Self-awareness, Success and Service.
As part of our Virtue and
S 4 program, we have been assigned Constable Scott! He comes into our school
whenever a teacher asks for his assistance with an S 4 virtue lesson. He is a preferred
guest at our assemblies and he shows
up whenever he is driving by and has time to say hello. He is here to help our children
learn strong resiliency skills - skills they will need to learn so that they stay out of trouble
and to encourage them to be positive citizens in both our school and our community.
