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.’’
