WISDOM UPFRONT

 

“Appreciate what you have, where you are and who you are with in this moment”

 

FAMILY HELPERS

Family helpers are an important part of our school.  As a school, we value the time and support given by family members to assist in a variety of ways.  A meeting was held this week for interested families regarding  expectations and the schools Code of Conduct Policy.  If you were unable to attend and would like to be a parent helper, you asked to complete the Code Of Conduct documentation and make an appointment to meet with me.  This requirement is effective immediately and is essential, as is a Working With Children Check. If you have previously completed documentation, you are not required to do so annually.

 

 

CODE OF CONDUCT

The purpose of Code of Conduct Policy is to establish clear expectations for appropriate behaviour by adults towards children and young people. It aims to protect children and reduce any opportunity of abuse or harm to children. This Code of Conduct also provides anyone engaged by St Peter Chanel Catholic Primary School with guidance on how best to support students and young people and how to avoid or better manage difficult situations.

 

 

UPDATING FAMILY RECORDS – ASTHMA

If your child has Asthma, your child’s Asthma Action Plan must be updated annually.  This can be obtained from your doctor, who must sign the document.  Please ensure your child has their own Asthma puffer/spacer with them at school.  If your child is confident with taking this, it may be kept with them in their classroom.  If not, it can be stored in the First Aid room located in the school administration.

 

 

ANAPHYLAXIS

If your child has Anaphylaxis or Allergies, please ensure that a 2019 Anaphylaxis Action Plan or Allergy Action Plan is provided to the school.  These plans must be updated annually.  This can be obtained from your doctor, who must sign the document.  Please ensure that the school has a current Epi-Pen which will be stored in the First Aid room in the school administration.

Statements have been sent home and all amounts for term one are now due. It would be appreciated if all accounts are paid promptly to ensure that the school can meet its payments. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please make an appointment to see me.

 

Thank you to all parents who have finalised their fee and levy payment for 2019.  Your support with this matter is appreciated.
