Dear Parents and Friends of St Therese's Primary School,
Welcome back to Term Four! I hope you all had a restful break with your children.
It is now time to get back into school routines, lunches, uniforms etc. It can sometimes be difficult to get back into the routine of getting up early to ensure your child/ren arrive at school on time. Daylight Saving started on Sunday 6th October which makes it even harder to get ready on time!
Here are some tips that you may find useful:
- Layout school clothes and school shoes the night before.
- Get your child to bed on time. Limit screen time at least an hour before bed to help to go to sleep. Often the bluelight from a device can interfere with the brain's ability to shut off!
- Have lunches packed the night before.
- Invest in an alarm clock
- Make time for cuddles. On rushed mornings, it's easy to skip the hugs and kisses. A few cuddles in the midst of the morning chaos will remind you all about what matters most in life!
If you are running late, please walk your child into the office and sign them in at the front desk. Thank you for your understanding.
Don't forget school hats are required this term. We are a Sun Smart school and require all students to wear a hat during Term Four! Please make sure it is clearly labeled so that your child's hat may find its way back if and when it is lost. We will be enforcing the 'No Hat, No Play' rule by Monday 14th October. This means that if your child does not bring a hat they will need to remain under the verandahs and will not be able to play out on the playground or ovals until they have a hat.
Our Sunsmart Policy can be found HERE
