Gymnastics Term 4
We had an overwhelming positive response to our survey about the Gymnastics program so we will be in contact with Woden Valley Gymnastics Club about running another program for our preschoolers in Term 4.
Please remember to check name labels on clothing and items sent into school. Can you please also check that hats and jumpers that come home belong to your child. We are trying to track down a few strays.
Covid and Illness
As you are aware there are a number of illnesses circulating in the community at the moment and the covid case numbers are predicted to increase over the next few weeks.
- Please ensure you use hand sanitiser before using the iPads and that you continue to practice social distancing.
- Children who are unwell should not be attending care unless a doctor has advised they are fit for care, if this is the case a medical certificate must be provided.
- If you are a close contact, you MUST wear a mask. We ask that you drop your child off at the classroom door and not enter the classroom to minimise time within the building.
- If you or anyone in your household tests positive, please inform the ELC office ASAP.
If you require any RAT kits please ask at the ELC office.
