Message from Principal

Dear parents and caregivers

In the short time I have been at Wembley Primary School I have been extremely lucky to have shared some wonderful interactions with staff and students. Going into classrooms I have been fortunate to have enjoyed some sensational moments and  it makes me stop and think that I have the best job in the world.

Expectation of students who arrive at school prior to 8.30am

Student safety is important to us and our classroom doors open for students at 8.35am each morning.

Students who arrive at school before 8.30am must go directly to the verandah adjacent to the undercover area and sit quietly. An exception to this is when children are attending a school organised activity (e.g. choir, sports).

For safety reasons, students are not permitted to play sport or go on the playground equipment before or after school. Arrival and dismissal times at Wembley Primary School are busy times. These procedures are in place to ensure the safety of all students at our school.

Bringing personal property to school

Children have a natural desire to bring their own toys to school. However, doing so often causes conflict between peers that they are unable to cope with or resolve amicably. Children can have difficulty sharing a special toy but they have an equally difficult time choosing to put away instead. We therefore request that children do not bring toys to school, but rather wait for the opportunity for sharing their things when friends visit their home.

Friday 19 May is National Walk Safely to School Day

We have many students who regularly walk or ride a bike or scooter to school, but would like to encourage those who live close enough to walk, but usually travel by car to give walking a go. By walking to school our students have the opportunity to develop vital road crossing skills and they will be increasing their health and fitness.  Research tells us that Australian children are becoming less active so let’s get moving.

In encouraging our students to walk or ride a bike or scooter to school, our students who ride bikes or scooters know that the expectation is that once they are inside the school yard they must walk not ride.

To our wonderful parents/carers – your patience, courtesy and willingness to work with us is greatly appreciated and valued.  Thank you.

Connect, Collaborate, Communicate, Care

Yours in learning

We have given out 200+ calico library bags so far this year to students who didn’t have bags, rather than not let them borrow.  We ask that these please be returned.  As a sustainable school, we no longer cover books, so therefore we ask that each student bring their own library bag – of any description!

Thank you.

Year 6 Cake Stall – Tuesday 23 May at Recess

Finally after 4 long years, the famous Year 6 Cake Stall is back !

We will be raising money to help reduce the substantial cost of the 2023 Year 6 Forest Edge Camp.

There will be the usual plethora of savoury and slightly sweet goodies to devour. Extra kilojoules students can convert to muscle when you burn them off charging around the oval!
