SCHOOLMATE APP
The Department of Education and Training has released an App which is designed to help
you better understand the curriculum we use to teach your children every day.
The App, called SchoolMate, is available for free download now in the App Store for iPhones
and iPads and in Google Play for Android phones and tablets.
SchoolMate gives you a general overview of the Victorian curriculum in each subject at each
year level and:
Provides you with an overview of what your child/children are learning in each subject
at each year level according to the Victorian curriculum (AusVELS)
Provides you with tips regarding activities and things you can do at home to help your
child/children in each subject and year level
Suggests apps, books, events and activities related to each subject area and year
level.
Our school, like all other government schools in Victoria, uses AusVELS as the basis for the
learning programs we run at school every day.
Our teachers adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of our students and community, for
example, designing learning programs around what your children are interested in, or around
days or celebrations that are important to our community.
SchoolMate is designed to give you an overview of what children are expected to learn in
Victorian government schools across every subject from Prep to Year 10.
I encourage you to download SchoolMate and to please talk with your teacher or myself if
you are interested to find out more about how our school teaches the curriculum.

DOGS IN THE GROUNDS


Please note that we request that dogs are not brought into the school grounds; particularly during busy drop
off and pick up times. Even the most placid of dogs can become excited and unpredictable with
the
traffic of hundreds of students and parents. In addition to these safety concerns, we also
need to ensure appropriate hygiene standards within our classrooms. Over recent weeks,
when students have walked through dog faeces in the grounds and then gone into their
classrooms.

If bringing a puppy/dog or any animal into the school for show and share, we ask
that you make contact with the classroom teacher prior to this visit so that the appropriate
arrangements can be made.
