School Concert

It’s that time of year again, with students currently rehearsing for our annual School Concert. This year the concert is being held on Tuesday, 29th of November and will once again be held at The Geelong Arena. This is a whole school event, with all students working hard to create a selection of different songs and dances for our entire community to enjoy. Please be aware of the following dates and times;

WHEN – Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

  •        TIME – 6.30pm
  •        WHERE – The Geelong Arena (110 Victoria St, North Geelong)

Information on when tickets are available and what costumes students will need will be given out in the next few weeks. We do ask that if a student cannot be at the concert for whatever reason parents let the school know as soon as possible to assist in the organisation of the production.

Bike Education

The Year Fours have just completed their Bike Education training program.

This important program helps students to

  • develop student bicycle riding skills; and
  • build understanding of road rules.

The in-school training is conducted by a trained staff member (we have a few and Ben Raidme is our current trainer) and culminates in an on road activity.

In a nutshell, the school’s policy on students riding bikes to school is:

  • Students in year 3 and under are not permitted to ride to school unless accompanied by an adult. **
  • Students who ride to school must wear a safety helmet. No helmet, no ride.
  • The school will provide Bike Education for year four students each year.
  • Appropriate training of a Bike Education coordinator will occur as required.
  • A lock up bike shed will be maintained for bicycles and scooters.
  • Cyclists and scooters must dismount at the school gate and walk the bicycles/scooters to the bike shed. No riding in school grounds, unless participating in supervised Bike Ed. activities.
  • Students are not permitted to use any bicycle or scooter belonging to another student, unless pre-arranged to facilitate Bike Ed participation.

**It is recommended that children under 10 years of age do not ride on the road without adult supervision. They have yet to develop the understanding, skills and experience to cope with traffic at this age.

Bike Ed…Away we go!!
