Carpark Access - Today & Tomorrow

Dear ELC Families,

I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you today at drop off time due to roadworks being carried out on Wheeler Crescent. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this. While I had been informed of this work, I was assured that access to the car park of the school would be maintained for families using our service. Unfortunately this was not the case this morning.

I have been in contact with Patches Asphalt, the company conducting this work, to work on resolving this situation. They have informed me that access to the car park will be restored by 3pm this afternoon.  However, there will be no access to the car park between 8:30-11am tomorrow morning.  Tomorrow morning after 8:30am, you will be able to access and park on Wheeler crescent just outside the car park entry.  

Following on from this, you should have access at all times.  Please note, road work will continue along Wheeler crescent with some parts being blocked off.  The easiest point of entry to the school will be from Fincham Crescent (the roundabout next to our school).

Thank you again for your patience and understanding as they improve the roads.  

Kind regards, Rebecca Mackay

ELC - Pick Up Times

Dear Families,

A gentle reminder to please observe our drop off and pick up times, particularly at the end of the day.  Our ELC closes at 5:30pm and it is important that students, families and staff finish their preschool day at this time.   

Students enrolled in the Preschool program should be attending from 9am - 3pm Students enrolled in the Preschool Plus program can attend between 8am - 5:30pm.  

In line with the above program times, it is important that your child is picked up at either 3pm or 5:30pm, relative to your chosen enrolment program.   Please note that as per our policy, late pick ups will incur a fee of $25 for every 15 minutes you are late.  We understand and appreciate that at times life can cause families to run late, however with a rising number of late pick ups the late fee will apply where relevant.

We thank you for your continued support with this and please feel free to chat to us in the office if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Rebecca Mackay
