Car Park Issues

The Police do random checks of all school areas every term. They choose their own timetable and their own issue to pursue. The more people they catch doing the wrong thing the more they come. We repeatedly remind and indeed implore parents to follow the road rules to prevent this. 

Yesterday Coolum Police issued 25 traffic offence notices on their first visit for Term 3. They have informed us they will be back.

The Council recently advised us that 80% of our enrolments live within 1.5km of the school. Imagine if all those children walked or rode to school. 

If you have ideas for fixing the car park please forward them to the Council as the school has no jurisdiction over that area nor is it funded to 'fix' non-government property.


COVID-19

It is imperative that we continue to follow the advice of Queensland Health and the Queensland Government. The latest COVID-19 Operating Guidelines for Queensland State Schools advises us that we must continue to ensure any visitors, including parents, carers, volunteers and visiting specialists comply with government health and safety measures. The most important of these are maintaining physical distancing requirements, good health and hygiene, abiding by regulations regarding hot spots of infection interstate and overseas, and not attending our school if unwell.
For this reason we must continue to ask you drop and go in the mornings and not enter the school gates. If you do need to come into the school to go to the uniform shop, attend a meeting or come at the request of a staff member you must enter through the office and complete the Covid 19 Declaration Form.
In the afternoons we ask you to limit your attendance on site if at all possible. If you must meet your children inside the gates please stay on the path to the Indoor Sports Centre, on the grass outside Prep or on the Covered Central Walkway.
Please stay two big steps away from every other adult at all times
We continue to take advice from Queensland Health in relation to novel coronavirus COVID-19. The latest information is available on the Queensland Health website at www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19.
Please stay well.

Morning Routines:

  • Parents are encouraged to develop a quick 'goodbye' ritual. Rituals are reassuring and can be as simple as a special wave through the window or an air high five (refer to the visual below for some more great ideas). 
  • Remember the golden rule 'Keep things quick and simple!'  You will be comforted to know that a quick and seamless goodbye is always best, and we know it increases the speed in which students settle happily into their class and into learning
  • Foster independence by dropping your child at the gate, in the green zone or somewhere else outside the school and watch them walk into school independently.
  • Time their arrival between 8.15 a.m. and 8.45 a.m. 
  • On arrival students are asked to place their bags on the bag rack and then play with their peers in their play areas. 
  • At bell time students are to go to their own classrooms where their class teacher will be waiting for them ready to engage in learning.  

After School Routines:

Starting Thursday 04 June, we will be relaxing restrictions on parent access to the school grounds in the afternoon only.

If you wish, you may spread out by waiting for your children down the Central Covered Walkway, on the grass outside Prep or on the grassy hill alongside the oval. The gates will be unlocked at 2.55 p.m. enabling you to spread out. If you can avoid this by continuing to meet your children in the car park somewhere, then please do. I do thank all those parents who have arranged meeting spots for their children well away from the school – please continue to do this, if you wish.

The parameters around this relaxation will be

  • continue social distancing – that is stay 1.5m away from other parents,
  • stay out of classrooms and other learning areas and communicate with teachers by email or phone,
  • remain in the Central Covered Walkway and stay off the pathways to classrooms
  • avoid congregating in groups of more than one. Groups of parents will be asked to leave school grounds and continuing their congregating elsewhere
  • leave the school grounds as soon as you can. Please do not hang around to catch up with your friends

Staff members will avoid the Central Covered Walkway, the grass outside Prep and other areas where parents and carers are standing in order to mitigate their own risk of infection. This is a government requirement.

Please note the routines for the morning will remain unchanged and we will not be considering relaxing this for some time.

Other measures to make note of - Please

  • You will be required to complete a COVID-19 safe declaration form prior to attending a required meeting at school on the grounds (such as Unifrom Shop, enrolment meetings, meetings with Leadership staff member etc.)
  • Do not enter the school unless it’s absolutely necessary i.e. to attend the uniform shop
  • Do not congregate with other adults in the school or the car park.
  • Communicate with your child’s teacher by telephone or email as there will be no face to face parent meetings for a while. 
  • Classroom access is restricted to students and staff. There will be no face to face meetings with teachers or other staff
  • Keep your child home if they are sick – even with just a sniffly nose. 

Most importantly, remain positive with your child about being at school and contact either their class teacher or their Lead Administrator should you have any questions or concerns.
