Uniforms

Menai has a distinctive and attractive school uniform and the expectation is that all children will wear it with pride. The school uniform shop is open each Tuesday 9.00am – 9.30am or orders may be left at the office (cash,cheque, or eftpos payment). or completed online via the online uniform store.

 
Wet Weather

During wet weather students stay in the classroom at break times. However wet weather equipment (raincoat and/or umbrella) is essential to enable students to stay dry when they visit the library, computer room, toilet block and assembly hall.

Illness

Should your child become sick and be unable to attend school, you can go online and complete an absence report for the class teacher. Alternatively on his/her return, you can write a brief note to the class teacher, explaining the nature of the illness and the date away. You must contact the school immediately of infectious diseases such as chicken pox, measles, German measles, mumps, whooping cough or conjunctivitis and impetigo.

Canteen

An Accredited Healthy School Canteen operates Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Lunch orders should be written on a paper bag showing child’s name and class. Helpers are always needed – come along and enjoy a chat and coffee. Notes are sent home at the beginning of the year asking for volunteers.

Homework

Homework is designed to consolidate what your child is learning in the classroom. Each grade has different expectations of the type and quantity of homework completed each week. Class teachers will inform you of their expectations.

Parent/Teacher Interviews and Student Reports

A child's successful schooling depends on close cooperation between the school and parents and teachers welcome the opportunity to speak with parents about a student's progress. It is important to ring the school first or speak to the class teacher directly to make an appointment time. This allows the teacher to set aside sufficient time to speak with you without interruption.

 

Assemblies

Our K-6 school assemblies are held every Wednesday Fortnightly from 2.45am – 3.25am in the Assembly Hall. Parents and family members are most welcome to attend.

Throughout the year each class will present an item to the Assembly which is lead by the Year Six student leaders. Parents are notified through the newsletter of which class is presenting the weekly item.
 
Before and After School Care

This centre is located adjacent to the school in Hall Drive and operates from 7.00am – 9.00am and from 3.00pm – 6.30pm. Children enjoy games, craft and much more. As the centre is very popular, advance bookings are essential – please phone 9543 5331. Please note: While the schools works very closely with the management of the Before and After School Centre, it is a separate body.

Students must be both registered to attend, and booked in for each session.
