Wearing uniform and being Sunsmart
Wearing the Blackburn Lake school uniform instils recognition that each student is an integral part of the school community and encourages pride in representing our school. With the start of a new term it has been pleasing to notice that the vast majority of students have been wearing their correct school uniform. This has helped to:
- Enhance and maintain a positive image of our school throughout the local community
- Promote equality amongst all students
- Allow all students to identify with our school community and feel a sense of pride in representing Blackburn Lake Primary School
- Promote consistency in the appearance of our students with a uniform that is easily recognisable during whole school and interschool excursions and events
I would like to thank all parents and students for their efforts in ensuring that the correct school uniform is being worn and would remind everyone that as per our uniform policy it is preferred that any additional weather accessories (for example, rain jackets, umbrellas, beanies, scarves) are bottle green or red in accordance with school uniform colours.
In accordance with both our uniform policy as well as Sunsmart guidelines, approved hats as provided by the uniform shop must be worn during all outdoor activity until the end of April (previously until the end of term one) as recommended by SunSmart guidelines: www.sunsmart.com.au/communities/early-childhood-primary-schools Thanks for your support....Read More
With the reputation of Blackburn Lake Primary continuing to grow, our school enrolments over the last five years have annually increased. With 50% of our families coming from outside of our “neighbourhood boundary,” School Council last year ratified a new Enrolment Policy to ensure our great school can remain so.
Last year enrolments for our Prep classes filled quickly, with some families missing out on securing an enrolment at the end of the year as they were out of our “neighbourhood zone”.
This year has once again started with a flurry of enquiries regarding Prep enrolments for 2016. School tours take place each Wednesday (at 9.30am by appointment), and existing families with siblings commencing school in 2016 are advised to lodge their application forms at the school office as soon as possible – and by August 1st to ensure enrolment. If you know of any family or friends who may be interested in coming for a school tour, please encourage them to contact the school office.
