Many of our families live very close by to the school and most of them walk to school. We have a beautiful park and council oval behind our school building. The students cross the parkland to get to the school. The trees are quite majestic and provide plenty of shade for our students (luckily I don’t suffer with hayfever too much). In the mornings I do my yard duty in this area shown in the photo above. This give me a chance to meet the children and their parents or guardians first thing in the morning. It’s great to have a friendly chat before the day starts and to get to know the parents.
