Camp Australia – Guiding Children’s Growth

We are proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) program.

Camp Australia programs are centred on child enrichment, while ensuring a reliable, engaging and hassle-free OSHC service at our school. Their engaged educators foster a safe, inclusive environment where children can relax, have fun and grow.

Camp Australia recognises that children need a different experience in term time to the experience they have on their holidays. Families can choose Your OSHC for before and after school experiences during term, or Rocketeers during the holidays.

Your OSHC – OSHC that inspires

At Your OSHC by Camp Australia, every before school, after school and pupil free day program is tailored to the likes and interests of each child in service. Camp Australia’s educators design enriching experiences to inspire your children’s confidence, independence and imagination. In any one week, they could be participating in science experiments, active play, creative expression and more – they believe in learning through experience so that each child can grow.

Rocketeers – Extraordinary Holiday Adventures

Rocketeers by Camp Australia is a space for children to escape the ordinary and experience the extraordinary during their school holidays. Every school holiday break is a new mission for children to embark upon. With carefully designed programs, directed by the children and informed by family feedback, no two days are the same with Rocketeers. Experiences planned could include games, arts & crafts, sport, excursions, cooking, coding and more.

School Uniform

The Skye Primary School Council upholds our school Uniform Policy and has declared that it is compulsory for school uniform to be worn for the following reasons:

  • A uniform gives a school a sense of unity.
  • A uniform removes the sense of competition in dress, which can often cause stress amongst students.
  • Wearing a school uniform has the important safety factor of making Skye Primary children instantly recognisable in any group, such as when on excursion.

Skye Primary School children will not be permitted to attend out of school functions, e.g. excursions, unless they are wearing school uniform. This decision is to ensure the safety of our students while away from school and to provide a sense of unity to the public so that the image of our school is thus enhanced.

THONGS AND SANDALS ARE NOT PERMITTED FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY REASONS

If for any reason a child may not be able to wear shoes to school e.g. blistered feet, a note must be provided from parents.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DENIM AND FASHION PANTS ARE NOT A PART OF OUR SCHOOL UNIFORM.

School Council

All government schools in Victoria have school councils.. They are legally formed bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of a school. In the performance of their role, school councils are able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students.

Within guidelines provided by the Department of Education & Training (DET), a school council has responsibilities for developing such things as

  • The school’s budget which shares out the available resources to enhance and support the learning needs of the students of Skye Primary school.
  • The general educational policy of the school
  • The physical appearance and maintenance of the school’s buildings and grounds
  • The student code of conduct which provides a safe and orderly environment for learning
  • An annual report on the school’s achievements….

 

Skye Primary School Council has a membership of 14:

  • 8 parents
  • 5 DET employees, which includes the Principal as the Executive Officer
  • 1 Co-Opted Community Member

 

School Council meets the first Tuesday of each month.
School Council elections are held each year for 4 parent and 2 DET employee positions. The notice of election is advertised through the weekly school newsletter in February of each year.
Further information on school councils can be obtained from the DET Website.
Aaron Gionis is Skye Primary School’s Council President.
Further questions about school council can be directed to the School Principal.
