Uniform - Term 2
As per the school’s Uniform Manual, all students from Years 1-6, must now be wearing their full winter uniform and adhere to all sections outlined in the manual. If you are unsure of the uniform requirements, please visit the school website. I am aware that there are supply issues in relation to the school tie and sport tracksuit pants. This should be rectified in the next week or so. The school uniform shop is open every Monday (8.00-10.00am), Wednesday (8.00-10.00am) and Thursday (1.30-3.30pm) during term.
Trackpants and windcheaters are now available to purchase.
Ties should be back in stock by Wednesday morning.
School Photo Day is Coming!
Your school photo day is coming! Approximately two weeks prior to the photo day every student will receive a personalised flyer to bring home from Kapture Photography containing your child’s unique codes for ordering school photos online.
KEEP YOUR FLYER SECURE!
The unique codes contained on the flyer will be issued only once.
Order EARLY for sibling photography
Sibling photos can ONLY be ordered online. Once you receive the personalised flyers for your children, it is imperative that you order your sibling photo early to avoid missing out! There is a physical limit in the school schedule to how many sibling photos can be taken. Once the maximum capacity of sibling orders has been reached, no more sibling orders can be placed.
If maximum capacity is not reached, sibling orders close 12pm midday sharp, one business day prior to the first photo day.
The school or the photographers cannot accept late orders for sibling photography. Please do not ask as your request simply cannot be accommodated.
Order EARLY for discount photo day prices
Order your photos within 10 calendar days of photo day to receive discount photo day prices. Late orders are handled separately to the school delivery and incur a $30 custom service charge.
Your school will notify you in a few weeks when team and special group photos are available to view and purchase on the Kapture website. Please note; class, individual and sibling portraits are not available to view online prior to purchase.
Kapture offer a money back guarantee for any parent who is not fully satisfied with their photo package. Should you have any queries before or after photo day, please check the FAQ’s on the Kapture website.
All students will be photographed individually on photo day for school administration records AS WELL as included in their class group presentation available for purchase to all families.
