Sun Smart Hats 

As per Department guidelines and our school dress code and Sun Smart policy, all students are required to wear their broad-brimmed Sun Smart hat during outside recess and lunch time and sporting activities throughout Term 1 and from September 1 until the end of Term 4 . Students without a Sun Smart hat will be asked to remain in a designated shaded area. With the warmer weather, we also recommend that sunscreen is applied at home prior to coming to school. Our classrooms have sunscreen available, and students are encouraged to re-apply throughout the day. 

  

OPS Skoolbag Application

Notices and reminders are sent home via Skoolbag, and all parents are encouraged to use the app. This allows families and staff to access important information quicker and easier, and ensures our environmental impact is reduced via less printing. Please see your child’s classroom teacher with any queries regarding Skoolbag. 

Login or download the Skoolbag app from the App Store or Google Play.

 

Student Banking

Commbank School Banking is processed every FRIDAY. Students should hand their bank books to their teacher and they will be sent to the office. Please see Kirsty or Mairead in the office if you would like your child to participate in this. Please click here for more information or to sign up.
