Communication

We are in the process of updating our email data-base. A letter will be sent home shortly requesting current contact details. To communicate with your class teacher please use the school diary, or contact the ELC School office by phone or email.

Diaries

All students are issued with VISS Early Learning Centre diaries. The school diary is a necessary tool in your child’s education. Diaries are to be used as a communication source between school and home.

Lunch box

Students at the ELC have 2 snack times, so provide a variety of healthy and nutritious food that your child likes to eat. Examples include finger fruit/vegetables such as carrots, cucumber, watermelon, etc. Also, yoghurt, custard, cereals, sandwiches, rice, crackers and cheese. Make sure your child brings everyday a labeled water bottle. Water is the healthier choice instead of sweetened milk and juice. Please note our school has a NO Nuts policy. That means, nuts are not allowed in school (Nutella, peanut butter, roasted nut packets, etc).

Transport

Parents and students travelling on school busses MUST NOTIFY the Transport Department if they are not using the bus at any particular time. Please notify the Transport Department directly by no later than 11am on the day. Not notifying the Transport Department causes long delays in releasing the buses from the school grounds which delays ALL students arriving home.
