CANTEEN

Our canteen offers a wide range of healthy foods. Students order their lunch and recess from the classroom. Class lunch boxes are taken to the canteen by 9am and collected again at eating time, which is 11:10am for lunch and 1:20pm for recess. Students eat their lunch quietly together in their class groups. Ice blocks are sold in Term 1 and 4 during the afternoon recess break. If a child arrives at school after 9.30 am they may order their lunch from a modified canteen menu at the front office. No students may leave school grounds for lunch without written permission from their parents. We provide emergency lunches for students at a cost of 50 cents or ‘mutual exchange’ which may be arranged in lieu of the cost.

UNIFORMS

Students are expected to wear a school uniform at Flinders View Primary School. The Governing Council has endorsed our Uniform Policy. (uniform policy is currently being reviewed by Governing council) School uniform is important because:
  • Encourages student pride in themselves and their school
  • It helps build a strong identity of the school
  • Eliminates peer pressure e.g. to wear brand clothing
  • Helps to keep students safe; staff know immediately if there is someone on school grounds that shouldn’t be
  • The Flinders View Primary School uniform comprises of the following:
  • Maroon polo shirt with white inserts, adorned with the school logo
  • Hooded school jumper or jacket with school logo
  • School bucket hat
  • Black bottoms and closed shoes.
  • Uniform prices may be obtained by contacting the school. A one-off special discount on uniforms is provided for new students on enrolment. After initial enrolment further uniforms or hats must be purchased at the regular price.

    Please refer to our uniform policy if you require further information by following the link. Uniform Policy

    GOVERNING COUNCIL

    Governing councils are bodies that govern a school or preschool. Governing councils work with the site leader (principal or director) to help set and monitor the direction of the site.

Parents are elected to Council at the Annual General Meeting held in the first term each year. Meetings are a big part of being on a governing council, but it’s not only that. In your role on the council, you might:

    WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK (WWCC)

    From 1 July 2019, people working or volunteering with children in South Australia must, by law, have a valid child-related clearance. WWCC replaces all other types of child-related employment screening checks. A WWCC will be valid for five years and if this is solely used for volunteering purposes, the volunteer will receive theirs for free.

  • work for SA Police or the Australian Federal Police
  • are a parent or guardian volunteering with your own child (e.g. at school) and do not have close personal contact with other children
  • Working with Children checks are required for:

  • parents or guardians attending overnight camps
  • sports coaches who are not parents / guardians of a child in the team
  • parent volunteers, if their own child is not involved in the service / activity
  • Please click here This link takes you to access the application form. Complete this form, make an appointment at the front office and bring 100 points of identification to commence the WWCC. Full details are available of the Department for Human Services website
