On behalf of the community of West Pymble Public School, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the Muslim community of Christchurch and to all those who have been affected by this tragedy.
I also wish to share with you advice received from our Secretary, Mark Scott, this morning. West Pymble PS is following all advice closely.
Please be aware that counselling services for any student, are available from the school upon request. I have also spoken with our staff this morning and asked that they please look after each other and be alert to any indications of distress amongst students and to inform me immediately.
If you would like to speak with our counsellor, Mrs Ravens, about your child, she is normally here every Wednesday, although should you wish to speak with a counsellor prior to Wednesday, please let me know and I can organise additional services as required.
Yesterday's bottle drop off was another resounding success with 427 recyclables delivered to the Apollo Avenue entrance. This brings our total for the year to 856. The GRAND TOTAL is 7633 when we take into account the 6777 bottles that we recycled last year. Our goal for the year is to double last years collection for a total of 15000 bottles. Please continue setting aside your recyclables and stay posted for the next school drop off date.
The Green Team is also looking at revamping our waste disposal at school that currently only takes account of general waste, paper and cardboard.
