School Update

Uniform Reminder

Anzac Park is a proud uniform wearing school. A couple of reminders regarding our uniform:

  • Please ensure your child is wearing Anzac Park uniform items and not alternate jumpers and hats.
  • Black shoes are an important part of our uniform every day unless your child is wearing sports uniform.
  • We have a ‘no hat, play in the shade’ policy and require every child to wear a school hat when outside. This includes before and after school. Beanies are not part of the school uniform.

We appreciate the support of all families in adhering to these uniform guidelines. As the weather starts to become colder, we are increasingly dealing with the challenge of tracking down jumpers and jackets when they are taken off at school. It is very frustrating when expensive clothing is lost or we are unable to return jackets to the owners as they do not have names on them.

Let’s work together as a whole school to do the following:

  • Label every piece of your child’s school uniform clearly with their name – especially hats and jackets.
  • Remind your child about the importance of putting their clothing in their bag if they take it off.
  • If your child comes home with an item of clothing which does not belong to them, please return it to school with a note so that it can be returned to its rightful owner.

Road Safety Reminder

Please be reminded you cannot stop in the “NO STOPPING” beside the 15 min zone on ANZAC AVENUE while waiting to pick up your child. You must continue to drive around the block to keep the traffic flowing and to allow cars to turn right into ANZAC AVENUE from Ernest St.

Let’s keep our kids safe!

Volunteers Needed

The Anzac Park Ethics program builds the critical reasoning ability of our students, helping them to come to a deep understanding of their own values. Students learn how to think through different issues and identify strong and weak arguments. At Anzac Park, we have one of the largest ethics programs in the state, supported by a fantastic team of volunteer teachers including parents, grandparents and community volunteers.

So that we can continue to offer ethics classes to all families who request them, we are looking for a number of new volunteer teachers to join the program in 2021. Teaching Ethics is a great way to get involved in the classroom and support the school. It could also help you to develop your own thinking, reasoning and facilitation skills!

Volunteers don’t need previous teaching experience or a background in philosophy or ethics. You receive full training and a fully prepared lesson each week. An APPS teacher is also present in each class for additional support. Classes are discussion based, so more teachers means smaller classes and a much greater chance for your child to fully participate in the lesson. Classes run every Tuesday.

If teaching ethics is a possibility for you, or someone you know (we’d love to hear from some grandparents or 2021 kindy parents!), please email apps.ethics@gmail.com or call our Ethics Coordinator, Cathy Chase on 0414 784 272.
