Dear families, Thank you so much for your co-operation with the traffic management at the new school. (See plan attached.) Morning drop and go: The drop-and-go system is working very well each morning, thank you for your co-operation in this. We would urge all parents to avail of this. When dropping each morning, we would continue to ask parents the following: Please pull into a set down bay when dropping – stopping on the road blocks the cars arriving behind you. Please do not delay in the set down bay as other cars need to use it. There are approximately 200 cars using the bays each morning. Please quickly assist your children to exit your vehicle and allow them to walk the short distance to the playground gate. There are parent volunteers who will assist all children to the gate. Please obey the directions of all staff and volunteers. Please do not congregate at the gate or fence to the playground as this blocks the entrance and can frighten younger children entering the playground as well as children using the bike racks. The children must come first – and parents should promptly leave the area once their children have entered the playground. They are fully supervised from 8.45am. Afternoon collection There is no parking at the campus at collection times and parents should not drive to the school gates each day or park on the road leading up to the campus.

Dear families, The link below shows the Traffic Management Plan for our school. Traffic management plan Stephenstown Arrival time There is a strict ‘drop-and-go’ arrangement at the school campus at arrival time each morning. Volunteers from the Parents’ Association and staff will be on hand to assist children to their line up areas in the playground. Parents should pull into the set down areas, release their children and then depart promptly. Parents should not park on the school grounds. Our school campus is shared with Bremore Educate Together and parking is for the combined staffs of both schools only. Parents and pupils from Bremore Educate Together will also be using the drop-and-go facility every day from September 2018. Dismissal time At end-of-day dismissal parents should park off campus and walk to collect their children at the school. At this time the set down area will be used for school buses and after-school transportation vehicles only. Volunteers The traffic management arrangements for the school campus require significant manpower and we are seeking parent volunteers to help manage this every day. Parents who are in a position to help are asked to please complete this form and someone from the school or Parents’ Association will be in touch. Thank you. ...
We will be celebrating St Nicholas Day on Friday 6th December this year in school. This is our first time to do this as a whole school so The Parents Association would love parents help with ideas of how we can make it a special day and educational for all the children across the school.
If you celebrate St Nicholas Day with your family or would just like to help out, we would love for you to join us for a cup of tea/ coffee and a biscuits this Thursday 17th October from 9-10am to brain storm some ideas and suggestions.
