School Photos – Monday 4 March 2019

Just a reminder that Photo Day is on Monday 4 March. Envelopes were sent home with all students on Wednesday 13 February.

 

Correct Payment and order envelopes must be brought in on Photo Day.

 

Students must wear their correct summer uniform with white socks and blacks shoes. No coloured t-shirts or singlets are to be worn under lemon shirts (even if you are not purchasing photos).

 

Please have hair neat and wear only correct coloured hair ties.

 

School captains and prefects, sports house captains and house vice captains should be at school by 8.30am.

 

If you are paying by cash please enclose the correct money in the order envelope for each child. It is important that the correct money is put in the envelopes as they will not be opened at the school. If paying by cash each student must have their own envelope , even if payment is in another child’s envelope. If cash payment for an order is in another student’s envelope please note the name and class of the paying student on the back of the order envelope.

 

If you are paying by credit card please go to www.donwoodphotography.com.au and follow the links. To order online you will need the school’s online code which is 387517. Order envelopes are not required when ordering online. Do no return the order envelope if you have ordered online.

 

Please check your order carefully as refunds are not available for incorrect package choice.

 

If you have more than one child at the school and would like a family photo, envelopes are available from the front office. These photos will only be taken if the pre-paid envelope and payment is returned on photo day or if payment has been made online prior to the day. Family photos will be taken at 8.50am. Please ensure your children are at school at this time if you would like them to have a family photo.

 

 

Changes to School Uniform Policy & Associated Guidelines

The NSW Department of Education has revised the School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines following an extensive review and consultation process, including with the NSW Parents and Citizens Association. The revised School Uniform Policy requirements include that:

  • all students have the opportunity to access the full range of school activities, including physical activities while wearing a school uniform
  • girls must have the option to wear shorts and pants
  • consideration is given to cost and how to assist families, including for schools to inform parents how they can access financial support to purchase school uniform items

The revised School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines can be found at the link: https://education.nsw.gov.au/policy-library/policies/school-uniform-policy

Where changes are required to a school’s uniform, there must be formal consultation with students, teachers and other staff, parents or carers, and the school community (including  the Parents and Citizens’ Association). Parents and carers should be given up to 3 years to comply with any changes.

For queries please contact Mrs Monin.
