Parking is always a safety issue at school. The school bus parking area must only be used for dropping of or picking up children. Cars are not to park there for any reason. Please observe the “No Parking” areas.
Children and parents are most welcome to use the school grounds outside school hours, but please observe the restrictions;
- No skateboards, golf, dogs.
- The School is a Non Smoking Environment
Hireage of Grounds
The school grounds may be hired by approved persons. Organisations or individuals wishing to use or hire the school grounds must apply to the Principal in writing.
Special Education Services
Children with special learning needs e.g. learning, behavioral, may be referred to Special Education Services by parents or teachers.
Telephone Contact Numbers
Parents must keep the school informed of telephone number changes for both work and home.
Talking to the Principal or Teacher
The office staff and Principal are always prepared to assist you with your enquiries and concerns. We have a genuine ‘open door’ policy. We would far rather deal with a concern before it becomes a problem.
It is usually necessary to make an appointment if you wish to speak to the principal or a teacher about matters related to the well-being of your child.
Teaching staff are not available to answer the telephone during school times and with our early start before school is difficult as staff are preparing for their day. Please leave a message. They will return your call. Alternately you can e-mail teachers and they will respond at the end of the day. E-mail addresses are on class webpages and available from the office. School and class information and updates are shared weekly by email, the Hero app, and Facebook (when appropriate).
Parent helpers are encouraged to be involved in the class by arrangement with the teacher. This might include helping with reading, the writing programme, school trips, sporting and craft activities.
There is currently no formal uniform at Ngunguru School though a hat to support our ‘Sunsmart policy’ is essential for Terms 1 & 4.
