Grandparents Day at Bounty

On Tuesday 28th of October, all of the Year 1 classes at Bounty invited Grandparents into class for the afternoon. It was a tremendous success. Take a look at the photos below.

News from the Bounty Bite Cafe

 from Yvette, Glenys and Sarah

Firstly thank you to everyone for your continued support. We are in the cafe from 8am to 3pm to help or answer any of your questions.

Reminders

The Café does not have eftpos facilities available or is able to give out credit, however as an alternative if you have forgotten to order, we are able to supply your child with an emergency lunch which consists of a jam, honey or a Vegemite Sandwich and a piece of fruit for $2.50, payable the following day.

All over the counter orders need to be in by 9am and due to raising costs we are now having to charge for brown paper bags with each order. Bags are 10c per bag. Alternatively you are more than welcome to supply your own.

Volunteers

We welcome volunteers in the café and would love to have some help from 9am to 10am for one hour or half an hour for either putting labels on bags or bagging cookies. The days help is most needed is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you are able to spare some time in the morning please give us a call or just pop in and see us.

Being Safe Before School

Safe behaviours before school in the covered areas

For just over a year, the Bounty Boulevard State School before school areas have been the Early Years Undercover Area (Prep – Yr3 from 8:20 – 8:40) and the Middle Years Undercover Area (Whole School from 8:00 – 8:20, Yr 4-7 8:20 – 8:40). This decision was made due to the significant increase in students arriving to school before 8:40am. At Bounty Boulevard State School, students and parents are asked not to wait in front of classrooms before school. This process is important for the safety of all children within our school.

For the Prep – Yr 3 students who are waiting in the EY Undercover Area, it is imperative that they adhere to rules and procedures of this area, even if the students are waiting with parents and carers. This includes sitting down in the undercover area and not leaving the undercover area without staff permission. For Prep students who have an older brother or sister who attend the school, that older brother or sister will be allowed to sit with the Prep student at the Early Years Covered Area until they are dismissed. When the staff dismiss students from the area, it is important that all students wait until they are dismissed by the staff on duty and do not take themselves off to class. Students are asked to walk to class as this demonstrates respect for themselves and for others.

Finally, we advise all families that the ideal time to arrive at school is 8:40am. This is when classroom teachers will have the classroom doors open and students can get ready for the day of Learning, Love and Laughter.
