School Newsletter – The Wattle View

The Wattleview newsletter is the official publication for the school community and contains important notices and items of interest related to your child’s education and the school community.

Parents are advised via email each Thursday once the newsletter is published on the internet. Hard copies are available on request at the office.

Current and backdated copies of the newsletter can be found below.

Lunch Orders

Our new Lunch Service operating on Fridays only will commence on Friday 24th April. A canteen menu is attached below.

Students must place their lunch orders in the provided tub in their classrooms by 9:15 am each Friday morning. Lunch monitors will take the tubs to the collection point where the orders will be picked up by the Canteen Service.

Lunch orders will be delivered to the school in time for eating by 1.20 pm.

Please read the menu and prices carefully and follow the instructions for ordering. This will assist both the school and the proprietor of this service. Any orders received after 9.15 am cannot be placed and it will be the parent’s responsibility to provide an alternative lunch.

We trust the school community will enjoy and support this new initiative in our attempt to provide a viable substitute for our canteen.

Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)

Wattleview Primary School’s Out of School Hours care is run by Camp Australia and provides our children with care in a creative, stimulating and safe environment.

The Before School Care program operates from 7.00 am to 8.45 am each day before school. At 8.45 am the children are encouraged to enjoy 15 minutes in the school yard to maintain social contact with their peers before the commencement of their school day. The children can access a healthy and nutritious breakfast between 7.00 am – 8.20 am to prepare them for the day ahead. A range of indoor activities are programmed in a relaxed, fun environment.

After School Care operates from 3.30 pm to 6.30 pm on normal school days. On days where children are dismissed earlier than 3.30pm, (eg. last day of term) care will be provided from the time of dismissal. The children are given a nutritious, varied afternoon tea and are able to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular indoor or outdoor activities. (Note: fees for extended hours in After School Care, eg last day of term, add $5.00 for every additional hour the program is open)

Curriculum Day Care is subject to adequate enrolment numbers on designated Curriculum Days and operates from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm when required.

Fees

The Out of School Hours Program is funded by the Commonwealth Government to provide Child Care Assistance to eligible families. This means that the final fee will vary from family to family and is dependent upon your income as assessed by the Family Assistance Office.

Uniform

The Wattleview School Council has made school uniform compulsory on all occasions. Our purpose in having a school uniform is to:

  • create a sense of identify and belonging and thus improving morale
  • promote the school through more readily identifiable groups of children
  • remove the pressures of fashions on parents and children

The uniform shop is now open every day by contacting the office.
