March 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to Silverton Primary School's e-Newsletter.

Dear Parents,

I would like to personally congratulate all the Grade 6 students on their great behaviour on camp last week. As a Principal it was nice to receive this kind of feedback from the camp’s owners and staff members. 

School Council

We received two nominations for the five parent positions on council, removing the need to have elections.  I would like to congratulate Olivia O’Connor and Stephanie Wellman on their reappointment to council to serve another term. 

Three nominations were received to fill three DET employee vacancies, again an election was not required. I welcome back Mark Pollard, Bianca Degering and Kristen McNair to school council.

We still have three parent vacancies. If any parents would like to join school council please contact the office or myself.

Road Safety Reminder

School drop off and pick up times are very busy with a great deal of traffic on Silverton and Jacksons Road. Parents and children need to make sure they use the school crossings where there is an attendant (Brian and Tony) on duty to help them cross the road safely. Helping children to understand how to keep safe is an important part of their learning. 

Personal Goods brought to School

Personal property is often brought to school by students, staff and visitors.  This includes mobile phones, electronic games, toys and sporting equipment.  The Department doesn’t hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property. 


Don’t forget no school on Monday 11th March, Labour Day.


For safety reasons, parents are reminded that our yard is not supervised before 8:45am-students should not be arriving at school before this time.  Before school care is available.
