Road Safety- School Crossing

With the start of the school year, it is timely to remind all school families that the use of the school crossing is imperative for everyone’s safety. If you are crossing Stanley Avenue Road before and after school, particularly with your children, we would appreciate it if you use the crossing. This provides positive role modelling to all students young and old. We thank you for your co-operation on this matter. Please do not take offence if you are asked to use the crossing.

Cycle Safety

A reminder to all parents and caregivers that students cycling to school are required to wear helmets to and from Stanley Avenue School. For students' safety, it is really important to ensure that their helmets fit correctly and are in a suitable condition. Thank you for your co-operation with this matter.

Building Update

We are excited to inform you that Room 9 and 10 will be available for use from early Week 3. During Week 3 and 4 the builders and contractors will be on-site at times to complete minor works. Next week we will have some photos of students working in their new spaces. Watch this space!

There's a Greedy Cat in Room 11

Mrs Roskam and Room 11 have been busy creating wonderful artwork and writing, about one of their favourite books....Greedy Cat by Joy Cowley. Check out some of the masterpieces below. Even the Builders were impressed when they were hanging on the fence to dry. It was also pretty special that they matched the artwork!!
