Bicycles and Scooters

Students riding bicycles and scooters to school should wear a correctly fitted helmet. Students are not allowed to ride bicycles or scooters within school grounds. Bicycles and scooters should be dismounted and walked to the bike racks located behind Yackatoon Unit. Students should then carefully secure their bicycles or scooters, as the school is not responsible for missing, broken or stolen items.

Book Packs and School Supplies

Order forms are sent home the year before. Families who order and pay for book packs will receive their packs during the first week back to school in Term 1. Families who pay and order their packs in Term 1 will receive their packs two weeks later. Students who haven't received their packs will be supplied with a lead pencil and an exercise book in the interim.
