The Ju­nior School Coun­cil’s dance-a-thon on June 19 was a great suc­cess.

The 53 Years 5/6 stu­dents danced non-stop for two hours, rais­ing just over $400 which, ac­cord­ing to prin­ci­pal Jane Lloyd, was a huge amount (see story page 9).

Ms Lloyd said on Mon­day, joined by Anita and Spice the dog, stu­dents were given prac­ti­cal demon­stra­tions about how to re­spect and ap­proach un­fa­mil­iar dogs as well as how to care for pets.

‘‘Ju­nior stu­dents should be able to re­port back to par­ents on re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship af­ter the meet­ing,’’ she said.

Ms Lloyd said an in­for­ma­tion sheet on so­cial media was at­tached to last week’s school news­let­ter.

‘‘This was down­loaded from the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion Bully Stop­pers-Cy­ber Safety page,’’ she said.

‘‘Dur­ing the hol­i­days chil­dren may spend time on iPods, iPads, phones and com­put­ers.

‘‘Par­ents should be aware of the sites and apps that their chil­dren are ac­cess­ing as un­ex­pected is­sues can arise with in­ap­pro­pri­ate im­ages and mes­sages on the screen.’’
