Lunchtime Organisation -
After a trial period and in consultation with staff, students and members of the school community, we have decided to continue with our successful lunchtime initiative.
If your child requires medication to be taken during the school day can you please come and complete a medicine authority form which is located in the office. Please do not just send medicine to school with your child - it must be administered by a member of staff and kept in the Hauora Room.
Bus vests and bus notices -
If your child catches the school bus, they are required to wear their bus vest to and from school. We are have noticed an increase in the number of children not wearing their vests. A reminder also that if your child is not catching the bus on the day, they need to fill out a notice in the office before school starts.
School Uniform -
Thank you for your support ensuring your child/children wear the correct school uniform. Your support is very valuable for monitoring and supporting the school, as it does have an impact on the overall culture of our school. The design of the uniform had strong student input ensuring student's voice and suggestions were taken into account.
If you have any concerns please call the clinic on 0800 846 983 to arrange an appointment.
Important Events and Dates -
The school calendar is prepared in January outlining events for the year. The purpose is to provide the community with as much notice as possible as we know how busy everyone is. Please visit the school website www.westmelton.school.nz to help coordinate your busy calendars!
