What does my child need to bring to school each day?

Your child will need to bring a school bag each day that is big enough to hold the following:

  • Crunch & Sip: a small piece of fruit or vegetable preferably cut up to have in the classroom at 10:00am.
  • Morning tea/recess: all children will need a small snack and drink to have at recess 11:00am. Please pack recess separately to lunch so that your child doesn’t get confused with what to eat. Please think of the nutritional and health value – don’t always pack a packet of chips. 
  • Lunch: please pack a small lunch. A sandwich, salad, pieces and/or fruit and a drink is ideal. Please DO NOT send in fizzy drinks or multiple sweet treats – e.g. Mars Bars, lollies etc – one treat is all they need. 
  • Hat: if your child forgets their hat they will need to play in the shade. 
  • Jumper: even if it is hot, the weather can be so unpredictable, that sometimes a jumper is needed. 
  • Raincoat: showers often occur during the summer months as do rainy days in winter.

All items must be labelled with your child's name.
