1: From the Principal –
I have encouraged our community
from the very first day
to make sure their children come
to school dressed in the
right school uniform.
We have a set uniform,
and it is an expectation from the school –
it is not optional. We are now
a year and a half into the life of the school,
and families have had time and
opportunity to obtain the right uniform.
Families have been asked
not to send children to school with a combination,
such as winter uniform mixed with sports uniform.
However, there are still a number of students
coming to school not dressed in correct uniform.
This is disrespectful to the expectation
of Playford College, and to the families
who make sure their children wear the correct uniform.
I am announcing a grace period
until the end of this term.
However, from the beginning of Term 3,
children who do not adhere to the uniform policy
may be sent home.
I would also like to point out
that the emerging trends of
colouring student hair and haircuts
with large shaved sections are not consistent
with Playford College’s expectations
and are not acceptable. I ask parents to take control
and support the school in these issues.
Do not send your children to school
with artificially coloured hair.
With haircuts, styles should have a 1 or a 2 as a minimum –
please avoid styles that have large sections
of the head shaved and then contrasted with long hair.
2: Can Drive –
thank you for all of the donations –
the can drive has now finished
and we will take many, many cans (around 370!)
to Anglicare, who will distribute
them to the less fortunate.
Have a look at the class sculptures
, class by class, on the School Stream newsletter.
3: – Visitors –
we often receive visitors,
who have had heard about Playford College
and come along to see how
much has happened in such a short time.
We thank our visitors,
for their prayers and their best wishes.
4: Drop Off and Pick Up –
School starts at 8.55am,
and students should be at
school ten minutes before that time,
to be ready when the bell goes.
The school day ends at 3.25pm and
supervision finishes at 3.45pm.
Parents should pick up
their children by 3.45pm.
If running late, please notify the front office.
5: Crazy Hair and Scarf Day
raised around $160 which was
donated to the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
6: Next Newsletter
will be Friday 29 June.
Fi aman Allah (swt)
