Rushton Park Car Parks Closed to General Public from Wednesday (tomorrow)
17/10/2017
10:35

Please be advised that from tomorrow both the car parks located at Rushton Park will be closed due to the set up of the Kelmscott Show. You will not be able to park in the car parks until Monday.

Please make sure your child is aware where you will be collecting them from or where to meet you at the end of school as it can be quite upsetting for them if they are unsure.

Also we ask that you do not sit in the Kiss and Drive while waiting for your child. It is very frustrating for parents who are trying to collect their child from Kiss and drive but are unable to due to parked cars.

Thank you

Good Morning

There seems to be some confusion regarding the classroom photos. 

Just to clarify - there is a classroom photo but the company we have chosen this year take the class photo differently.

They take the classroom photo in groups of 5 - 8 and then place all the groups together electronically to get the classroom photo. 

As you would be aware there were many complaints last year about the previous company used. 

Both the school and the P&C interviewed several companies the 3P were selected and the quality of their photos was outstanding.

Please click on the link if you wish to view the work that 3P have on their website. www.3p.net.au

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Kiss and Drive

Dear All Parents,

Thank you to all parents for the way you have responded positively to my email last week regarding the safe use of the Kiss and Drive.  I have received very supportive comments from all parents who have stopped to talk with me while I have been performing random patrols on Orlando St. 

Whilst I am reminding some parents about not parking in the Kiss and Drive, I have certainly noticed the vast improvement whereby parents are dropping off or picking up instead of parking and leaving their vehicle unattended.  It is terrific also to see more parents using the parking area at Rushton Park and using the cross walk to enter the school grounds.

Once again please accept my thanks for your improved safer use of the Kiss and Drive on Orlando St.

Regards,

The Newsletter
16/02/2017
15:45

Dear All Parents

 

The parent newsletter has been published and circulated each fortnight for many years at Kelmscott PS.  With the addition of other communication tools such as email, the School App and school Facebook page we are communicating news and other information more regularly.  This expectation to be informed of school news more immediately through these technology tools is common across other organisations we are associated with.  We are also forming an expectation to receive smaller amounts of information more regularly.

 

Therefore, Kelmscott PS will publish a newsletter at the end of each term.  This termly newsletter will be a collation of events and celebrations that have occurred throughout the term.  Meanwhile we will inform you of issues, event information and provide reminders by using email, or the School App or the school Facebook page.  Furthermore, we will point you to our School Website so that you can easily refer back to information previously sent to you.

 

Our P&C has approved of this change and will also continue to use the school Facebook page, School App and School Website to inform our community of any P&C news.

 

We will monitor this change, however we anticipate this change will assist in the important process of communicating information with our school community.

 

Regards,

Neil Spence

Kiss and Drive
16/02/2017

Dear Parents

 

The Kiss and Drive situated on Orlando St is provided to improve the flow of traffic in the morning and afternoon.  The procedure for using the Kiss and Drive is to drop off your child/ren in the morning and collect your child/ren in the afternoon.  Motorists are not to park in the Kiss and Drive at any time and leave their vehicle unattended.

 

This morning (16.02.17) a parent or caregiver double parked at the Kiss and Drive parking section on Orlando Street.  This incident is highly dangerous for students, pedestrians and other motorists.  Furthermore, we have some parents and caregivers who continue to use the Kiss and Drive as a car park and leave their vehicle unattended.  These choices are inappropriate and can be easily avoided.  The safety of everyone is paramount.

 

We highly encourage all parents and caregivers to use the Kiss and Drive appropriately and to abide by the road rules at all times.  Your full cooperation is appreciated and will ensure everyone arrives at their destination safely and on time.  We thank everyone who uses the Kiss and Drive appropriately.

 

Regards,

Neil Spence

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The Treasure Hunters Lunchtime Bible Club at Kelmscott Primary School runs each Wednesday from 1:25pm to 1:45pm in the library by trained and accredited YouthCARE volunteers and comes to KPS in collaboration with Kelmscott Anglican Church.  The club is not compulsory and children from years one to six are welcome to attend. 

Treasure Hunters includes games, competitions, puzzles, drama, discussions and each week, a key story from the Bible.  The program is linked to and strongly supports the school’s moral compass.  YouthCARE club leaders are trained to be respectful of the diverse cultural and religious backgrounds of the all children. 

This year we will be looking at the Golden Rule (treat others as you would like to be treated), a topic called “Kids Can” (kids can do great things and make a difference), some Bible stories about King David and King Solomon, Bible stories about Jesus and at the right time of year, we will take a peek at what the Bible has to say about Easter and Christmas.

Further enquiries

More information about YouthCARE can be found on the website www.youthcare.org.au. If you require more information about the Treasure Hunters program please contact Meredith van der Klip on 9390 5351.

If you would like your child would like to participate in the Treasure Hunters Club please fill out the permission form attached to this email and return it to the CHAPLAIN’S LETTER BOX in the hall.  Treasure Hunters will commence on Wednesday 1st March.
