$10 includes face-painting and lots of fun.

Year 3 & 4– 3:45pm -5:15pm

$20 includes three slices of pizza and a can of soft drink.

Year 5 & 6 – 6:00pm-7:30pm

All three sessions will feature a chill-out zone with bean-bags and headphones for students that need a bit of quiet time away from the disco for a short time.

 What do I need to do as a parent:

Child Safety is everyone’s responsibility and at McKinnon, we are committed to the health and safety of our students. We have established a variety of policies and processes to provide an environment where children are safe and feel safe. In its planning, decision-making and operations McKinnon Primary School will:

  1. Take a preventative, proactive and participatory approach to child safety.
  2. Value and empower children to participate in decisions which affect their lives.
  3. Foster a culture of openness that supports all persons to safely disclose risks of harm to children.
  4. Respect diversity in cultures and child-rearing practices while keeping child safety paramount.
  5. Provide written guidance on appropriate conduct and behaviour towards children.
  6. Engage only the most suitable people to work with children and have high-quality staff and volunteer supervision and professional development.
  7. Ensure children know who to talk with if they are worried or are feeling unsafe and that they are comfortable and encouraged to raise such issues.
  8. Report suspected abuse, neglect or mistreatment promptly to the appropriate authorities.
  9. Share information appropriately and lawfully with other organisations where the safety and wellbeing of children is at risk.
  10. Value the input of and communicate regularly with families and carers.

All the school’s child safety documents are readily available on the school’s webpage for all staff, parents and students to read at any time. If any member of our community has concerns about the health, safety or wellbeing of any of our students at any time, we encourage you to make contact with DHHS or the school to discuss.
