Dear Parents and Caregivers,
All students who represented our school at the district swimming carnival last week and those who were selected to compete in this Friday’s zone carnival. Banora Point Primary School were the overall winners of the carnival and applaud the students for their outstanding behaviour and their achievements. Congratulations also to Mrs Gill who was the convener of the district carnival.
KINDER LITERACY AND NUMERACY SESSION
Kindergarten parents are invited to a Literacy and Numeracy Session on Tuesday 7 March at 8:45 - 9:15am. This session is designed to support parents in their children’s learning and strengthen the link between home and school.
CHANGES TO DROP OFF
Due to ongoing maintenance of our Drop Off Zone, for the remainder of this week, students will assemble on the oval near the double gate to be collected for Drop Off procedures of an afternoon. There will be no change to the operation of Drop Off for parents. A reminder to be mindful and courteous of our neighbours when using our Drop Off . Please abide by the road rules and please do not park across driveways as this can be disruptive for people living near our school.
Scripture for our students commenced on Tuesday 21st February. At Banora Point Primary School the approved Special Religious Education programs provided are Catholic, Combined and non - scripture. Students will continue in the same arrangement each year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing. A note to the principal will affect this change.
