Anaphylaxis notification-Prep A

By | Uncategorized

Dear Parents of Prep A,
 
There are students in your child’s class who have severe allergies. Contact with the following food products could cause this child to go into anaphylactic shock:

  • Peanuts

This is a potentially life threatening allergic reaction which may result in a sharp  drop in blood pressure, hives, breathing difficulties, difficulty swallowing or speaking, a sudden feeling of weakness and/or unconsciousness. An anaphylactic emergency requires rapid treatment with medication, usually adrenaline.
The children in question are aware of how to manage the condition, the school staff are trained and there are action plans in place to respond to any emergency.
However, to further reduce the chance of such an emergency, we ask that you carefully consider what you send to school in your child’s lunch or snacks. We are seeking your assistance in curtailing the amount of these products in the classroom.
If you choose to celebrate your child’s birthday by sending a treat for the children in the class, please take care in the choice of treat you send.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Newsletter Issue 7 – Term 2 Week 6 2019

Newsletter Issue 7
Term 2 Week 6 2019
 
From the Principal’s Desk
 
Together we learn, lead and achieve.  
 
Dear Monty South Community       
 
New build update
 
As I sent on Compass last week, the completion of the new build will happen six weeks ahead of schedule. We take the keys of the building in the first week of the July school holidays. Removalists are booked for July 3 and 4 and today I have just approved the purchase of $100,000 worth of class and library furniture which will be delivered around those dates. The Furniture Student Action Team have been providing advice on what they like and have asked many questions. We are gradually purchasing items that students and staff have on their wish lists. 
 
There are many other things we are buying and/or finalising such as staffroom furniture and whitegoods, furniture for the first aid and meeting rooms. There is a lot to think about and plan for.
 
We have also started packing up the old building and getting rid of excess papers and items. So our shift is coming together quite quickly and we are getting really excited. Thank you to all those parents who have emailed, popped in or called to offer help.  You are just amazing and we will certainly be calling on you. 
 
At this stage, only nine classes will be moving initially – the Prep and Year 2 students. The building will hold 12 to 14 classes, depending on class size. Next year we will fill the building. 
 
In the second week of the school holidays, everyone has to be off the premises as they are removing the asbestos from Block A. Once completed, demolition of Block A will occur and the current Year 2 portables will be removed by the department in preparation for the staff carpark.
 
Congratulations and well done to the Parents and Friends group
 
Thank you and well done to our Parents and Friends group and school community for their great work at the Election Day BBQ and cake stall. As I said in the last Newsfeed, the money raised will go towards our new playground.
 
Thank you to everyone who assisted on the day by cooking or serving a ‘democracy sausage’ as well as those who baked for the cake stall. A huge thank you to Jenny Vergers who organised the event and volunteers and made sure everything was ready to go. The students and staff are very grateful for your efforts. The day raised $2000.
 
Staff news
 
Next Wednesday, we say goodbye and wish Melanie Townson (Vaughan) all the best for the impending birth of her baby. Mel’s replacement will be David McFarlane who will join us from Springvale Rise Primary School on the 17 June. This is the earliest David is able to join us with his commitments at his current school. On Sunday, David and Mel met and went through the student files so that he will be able to take over seamlessly. Mel has nearly completed her reports and for this we thank her for her professionalism and commitment to her class. She will be missed. 
 
Year 4 camp
 
Year 4 will be off on camp in one week!  The final note was sent out to parents on Compass this week. The students are heading to Camp Arrabri, an adventure camp near Warburton. It is a wonderful camp and one of the highlights for the students is a ride on Puffing Billy as part of the planned activities. We wish them a great time and look forward to hearing their stories when they return.
 
Uniform shop
 
RHS will be closing their retail shop on Friday 21 June for their yearly stocktake.
 
This means that:

  • No orders will be shipped
  • No orders via the web will be downloaded and packed
  • Shop will be closed for walk-in parents.

 
It is expected that the shop will be operational again on Monday 24 June.
 
In terms of our onsite shop:

  • It will not operate on Thursday 20 June
  • Deb will do a stocktake of the shop on Wednesday 19 June
  • Shop will reopen on Thursday 27 June (last week of school).

 
 
MSPS achievers
 
Thumbs up to the following achievers from our Monty South community:
 
Congratulations to Alex Lloyd who has been selected to represent Victoria at the Primary State Schools National Athletics Championships in high jump. Alex will be off to Darwin in November and will be competing against the best students from primary schools around Australia.

WHAT IS COMING UP
 
Scholastic Book Orders

A Scholastic order form will be sent home with your child/children this week.  If you would like to order  you will find all the information on how to order attached below.  The books will take approximately two weeks to arrive at school after the closed due date of Tuesday June 4.  Each order helps earn free books for our school, however there is never any obligation to buy.

If you are buying books for your child as a present, please email me on iob.clare.e@edumail.vic.gov.au if you would like me to hold them temporarily in my office for you. If I am not advised, when the books come in they will go straight to your child’s classroom.

Orders can only be made via the LOOP.  Please do not send cash to school.

Visit scholastic.com.au/LOOP or download the app in App Store for iPad/ iPhone or find it on Google Play for Android..
