SUNSMART HATS, etc.
Students in prep to year 4 are required to wear the official school broad brimmed or legionnaire hat whenever they are outside from the beginning of September to the end of April (i.e. recess, lunchbreak, physical education sessions, sport and excursions).
Years 5 and 6 students have the option of official school bucket hats.
Due to health issues, we implement a NO HAT; NO PLAY rule - students without a hat stay in a specified shaded area.
We encourage the daily application of sunscreen by parents before school and by students prior to lunchbreak. Unfortunately due to the risk of allergies, we cannot supply or apply sunscreen.
We also encourage students to use available areas of shade for outdoor activities. We have enough sun shelter for all our students.
Our weekly publication – “PLENTY PARKLANDS PRIMARY PRESS” – is the school’s prime source of communication with parents, so it is vital to read this to keep up to date.
It is published on our website www.plentyparklands-ps.vic.edu.au and is available every Thursday from 9.30am.
Please ‘Like’ our Plenty Parklands Official Facebook page so you can receive notifications of what is happening around the school.
ITEMS ON THE ROOF OF THE SCHOOL
It is a legal Occupational, Health and Safety requirement that personnel must have completed the official ladder training course before they can go on a school roof.
Our trained staff member has Friday after school as the allocated time to collect shoes, balls and other objects from the roof.
These objects are then placed in the Lost Property basket for collection the following Monday.
As detailed in our Student Dress Code, students are to wear full school uniform every day.
Our uniform shop is located in the gym foyer. The shop is open on Mondays during assembly from 2.50pm to 3.30pm.
If you are unable to attend the shop at this time you can order items using the Qkr app, or complete an order form and forward it together with payment to the school office.
Orders will be filled and sent home with your child. Please find a copy of this policy on pages 11 and 12

PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
To be eligible for the Program for Students with Disabilities, a student must meet strict criteria for one of the following categories:
- Physical disability
- Visual impairment
- Severe behaviour disorder
- Hearing impairment
- Intellectual disability
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Severe language disorder with critical educational needs.
The Student Support Group (SSG), which is a partnership between parents, school staff and other professionals, develops an Individual Learning Plan which details the educational goals and a tailored educational program to meet the particular needs of that student.
If you believe your child may fit one of these categories, please contact our Program for Students with Disabilities coordinator, Ms Jo Creed, as soon as possible. Making an application for additional funding is a complex, time consuming process as there are very strict timelines and criteria that must be met.
