Would You Like Steiner Based Before and/or After School Care at CBRSS?

We are currently running a survey to gauge parent interest in having Steiner based before and/or after school care provided at the school. Dependent on the results of the survey, we will make a decision about whether to apply for funding to set up this program. Please go to the survey website to complete this short survey by Monday 7th August (better still, do it right now so you don’t forget).

Keeping Everyone Safe

Just a gentle reminder to please drive slowly and carefully down the hill when coming to the school. Please also take extra care in the car-park as there are a large number of children moving through this area in a short space of time during drop off and pick up times. We have asked staff and students to park on the far side of the bottom car-park, to leave the front parking spaces open for parents bringing students to and from school. Also, a gentle reminder that all drop offs and pick ups must happen from the bottom car park. Please consider carefully the need to drive students to and from school – using the buses saves fuel and time and also reduces the traffic volume on Balraith Lane (and helps us to maintain good relationships with our neighbours).

After School Pick Up – New Safety Guidelines

After some recent safety issues involving after school pick up (including Friday markets), we have developed a new Parent Information Sheet outlining safety guidelines. One of the key points in this is that parents must park the car, pick up their children (1-6) from the basketball court outside the hall and walk the children back to the car. Please note that our bottom car park does not currently operate as a ‘drop and go’ site. K-6 aged students should not ever be walking through the car park unaccompanied. We also ask that parents of kindergarten children walk up to the kindergarten to pick up their children, we will no longer allow kindergarten children to be picked up by siblings. Please do take the time to read the new Parent Information Sheet in full. It can be found on our school website here.

Our friendly local Snakeman was here this week to help with the removal of one of our red bellied friends. Rest assured he will be re-located and released in to a safe and suitable new environment.

Thanks Snake man!

Caring for our Teachers

Our teachers work really hard and we make every effort to care for their wellbeing. This includes making sure they get ‘down time’ from school, time to spend with their families and pursuing their own interests. With this in mind, we ask that parents communicate with teachers through the Reception email, or by calling the school and asking for a call-back or an appointment. Please do not email the teachers directly at night or on the weekends. Please don’t be upset if a teacher does not respond to you at night or on the weekends, they will get back to you as soon as possible during their working time.

Friendly reminder re School Fees

Term 2 school fees are due today – Friday 19th May 2017. Thank you to all who have already paid. If you haven’t paid or made other arrangements yet please pay Term 2 fees promptly.

Thanks

Please Help Us To Reduce Traffic on Balraith Lane

There are quite a lot of cars travelling on our local roads at drop-off and pick-up times.  We ask for your help in reducing the traffic load by considering carefully whether your child could utilise a bus service to come to school.  Alternatively, you might consider car-pooling with some other families.
Your assistance in reducing the school-based traffic on the roads will support a safer and calmer local traffic environment.

From Georgi

Dear CBRSS School Community.

It is with much sadness that, due to family reasons, I have made the tough decision to resign from the Receptionist role at Cape Byron.

I have very much enjoyed working with your beautiful children, the lovely staff body, and this gorgeous school community. I will dearly miss everyone.

My two youngest boys are still at CBRSS, and so I will still see you around. Thank you for being such a beautiful school community to work with. I am deeply grateful, and already treasure the experience.

Thank you …

Much love,

from Georgi XO.
