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.

Also, please be reminded it is illegal to turn right into the Kiss and Drop from Rosalind St. The Kiss and Drop is classified as a divided road – not an intersection, so you can’t cross double lines. You must access Kiss and Drop 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.
