Mosquitos

Due to the extended dry period with a much shorter wet period Mosquitos this year have been forced to condense their breeding season into a much smaller period.

Thus there will be many more of them working at a more furious pace to provide for their young ones.

We do all we can to limit breeding sites on our school site, but the larger environment provides ideal mosquito breeding habitat as it does along much of the east coast.
So it is advisable to take your own precautions by providing your child with suitable clothing & mosquito repellent of your choice to apply to your children.

Innovation Centre – Join a tour at our Spring Fair!

Our new Innovation Centre has transformed our School, the High School is revelling in the much needed additional space, and the students are loving the “state of the art” facilities we now have available for their use. Be sure to join in one of the tours we’re running at the Spring Fair to get the full experience inside and out.

We still need to raise $12,115 to pay for the entry to the school which includes the outdoor shelter between the new building & the Performance Hall, which provides students & parents with a covered drop off area at pick up time and students with an additional sheltered space in the playground.

A big thanks to those who have donated so far! 

 

Snakes are becoming active again.

They will be looking far & wide for food & are on the search for mates & territory. The breeding instinct is in full swing & they will be less tolerant of others (humans) sharing their environment. It is extremely important at the moment to stay out of garden areas. Everyone, please stick to paths & open walking areas.

SNAKE AWARENESS

• TREAT ALL SNAKES AS DANGEROUS – IDENTIFICATION DIFFICULT – NON-POISONOUS, BITE STILL INFECTIOUS.

• KEEP OUT OF GARDENS & WILD SPACES AS THESE ARE HABITAT FOR SNAKES.

• MAINTAIN DISTANCE FROM SNAKE – DO NOT APPROACH CLOSELY.

• DO NOT HASSLE, INTERFERE WITH, THROW STONES OR STICKS ETC AT SNAKE.

• IF YOU ARE VERY CLOSE TO SNAKE – DO NOT MOVE – SNAKES DO NOT HAVE EARS BUT WORK OFF VIBRATION, MOVEMENT & INFRARED OR HEAT SENSING. IF YOU DON’T MOVE SNAKE WILL NOT REGISTER DANGER, AND WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE AWAY.

• IF REASONABLE DISTANCE FROM SNAKE SLOWLY MOVE AWAY MAINTAINING SIGHT OF SNAKE.

• IF POSSIBLE ONE PERSON TO MAINTAIN SIGHT OF SNAKE WHILE ONE PERSON INFORMS TEACHER OR FRONT OFFICE TO CALL SITE MANAGER OR SNAKEMAN.

Biodynamics

Recently Charlie Arnott (Class 2 parent) provided a flowform with some 500 preparation that children in Primary School with the help and guidance of Gavin then sprinkled around our beautiful school to enrich and enliven our land just in time for our Spring Fair. Flowforms by design, emulate the swirls and vortices of the mountain stream, enabling water to reoxygenate, revitalise and rejuvenate, bringing it back to its more natural state. Flowforms provide a perfect way to stir large quantities of 500 preparations in an enlivening and sympathetic manner. Our thanks to Charlie and Gavin for undertaking this important initiative.
