Canteen

The canteen is open on Wednesday to Friday each week during school term. An online ordering and payment system is available.  Please visit the flexischools.com.au website for details and ordering.  Volunteers are always needed, please see Jacki in the canteen or contact the front office.

Car Park

We have two disabled car parking facilities in the car park.  One near the administration building and another located in the parking bay on the left hand side as you turn the bend to leave the carpark.  The only place you are allowed to leave your vehicle in our front carpark is within an allocated parking bay.  The left lane of the carpark is for set down and pick up only.  This lane is not for parking, drivers should remain with their vehicle at all times.  The right lane is not for stopping.  We encourage families to park in the top car park for pick up and drop off to minimalize congestion at the beginning and end of the day.

Car Park/Student drop off/pick up

To ensure the safety of all our students at pick-up time students should wait behind the painted yellow line at the front of the school for parents to arrive to pick them up.  Parents should drive as far as possible through the carpark, staying inside the yellow line, leaving as small a space as possible between cars.  Under no circumstances should a vehicle stop on the right lane to drop students off or call to students for pick up.   Students should wait until cars have stopped before approaching the car.  We appreciate parents who continue to use the top car park.  This has improved the congestion issues.

Communication

Open and effective two way communication is of paramount importance at Bonython Primary School. This is because of the shared role that the community, parents, teachers and students play in everything that we do. We encourage involvement - together we can make our school the very best it can be - for everyone!   Please make sure your family and friends know about our Facebook page, smartphone app and Google Communities.  These forms of communication provide instant updates and regular information for our families.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bonython-Primary-School/102380009860463. All notes sent home and Bulletins can be found on our web page www.bonythonps.act.edu.au .  We also have a fortnightly Bulletin which is emailed to families every even week of the school Term.

Your child’s classroom teacher is your first point of call if you have concerns about your child’s learning or challenges that they may be facing at school or at home.  This may include changes in family dynamics or other events that may impact on your child’s emotional wellbeing at school.  Please contact your child’s teacher to make a time that is mutually convenient for you both.


Contact Details

It is important that we have up to date contact details for parents/carers in case of an emergency.  If you have changed your phone number or address please advise the front office as soon as possible.  If you have changed your address, the Education Directorate require us to obtain proof of your new address being a copy of electricity/gas bill or rental agreement.
