Welcome to our school

Griffith North Public School provides a stimulating learning environment where we foster the values of care, respect and responsibility within our students. Students are encouraged to achieve excellence in all they do.

Education Week 2020

School Attendance

All students should be at school unless:

  • They have a medical certificate which states that they are unable to return to school due to an ongoing medical condition
  • They are currently unwell.

Please note, students who live with a family member in one of the categories identified as being at increased risk by the AHPPC, should attend school unless a medical practitioner advises otherwise in writing.

If your child is unwell, do not send them to school. If they are unwell at school you or your nominated emergency contact will need to collect them immediately. Please make sure your contact details are up to date.

If a student is absent without a medical reason for more than three days, this will be recorded as an unauthorised absence and followed up by the school.

School Activities

Teachers will continue to follow the same school curriculum with the exception of some activities that can’t go ahead for now.

What children can do:

·       Use the school library

·       Engage in non-contact sporting activities

What students can’t do:

·       School assemblies (unless for critical information)

·       School incursions and excursions including camps

·       Inter-school activities (debating, inter-school sport)

·       In-school activities requiring parent or other volunteers

·       Drink from a water bubbler – bring a water bottle instead 

Drop off and Pick Up

As COVID 19 is mainly transferred between adults and as part of the procedures provided by the Department of Education for schools to keep adults on sites to a minimum, we are asking that parents do not come into the school grounds to wait for their children.  We are asking that:

·       If you would like to talk to your child’s teacher, please phone the office and a message will be given to the teacher to return your call

·       If you need to come to the office, you come via the Boonah Street entrance

·       If there are more than 3 adults in the office foyer area, that you wait outside the office door, until the office area is clear

Wherever possible stay in your car and use the drop off areas outside the school

Kindergarten and Year 1 Drop off and Pick Up

Kindergarten and Year 1 teachers will take students to the gates at Boonah, Yoolooma and Kooba Streets to meet parents. To make it easier for students to remember which gate they are going to we will be using a colour code system (same as our house colours):

·       Boonah- Blue gates;

·       Yoolooma –Red gates

·       Kooba- Green gates;

Please make sure you tell your child which gate you will be meeting them at.
