Around The Kindergartens

Tuesday, 12 April 2016 03:09
During the holidays a group of dedicated parents and staff worked together to make some further improvements and also do some maintenance in the K5/6 playground. As the pictures show there has been additional retaining added through the installation of some natural and creative stepping blocks and natural timber seating. The upper area around the flow form was then mulched and reticulation and lawn installed in the middle part of the playground. A safety cover has also been built to house the air conditioning unit and make the area safer and more protected from the children and the elements. We wish to extend a huge thank you to Jasmine Hanson, who has planned (with Ute’s, Jane’s and Kerrie’s help) and driven this project. Jasmin has spent many, many hours discussing possibilities, getting quotes, talking to contractors, making up spreadsheets and liaising with the staff and workers. It was a fabulous…

After Hours Access

Saturday, 09 April 2016 03:07
During the holidays and weekends we have had some issues with visitors to the School when the school is unattended, using toilets, leaving taps on and filling our rubbish bins. We appreciate the interest our beautiful little school creates amongst the community, but the need to preserve water and the space for the enjoyment and education of the children is far more important than catering for the public (who are not so well meaning at times). We have therefore come to the decision to implement a policy where the toilets will be locked overnight and on weekends and school holidays. In particular the use of the water tap, the toilets and our bins by the general public after hours is not acceptable behaviour especially considering how precious our water source is! Most of the water used in our toilets is actually sourced from a dam across the road i.e. not…

Giant Knitting Follow Up

Friday, 08 April 2016 03:06
Just as a follow up on the Giant Knitting the School wanted to let the wider community know what a great success this has been as a tool to promote the School; overall our very amateur video which was primarily made for the knitters parents has reached 83 800. The photo taken by SW Life & Style has had more than 11 320 ‘shares’. The School has been approached by the City of Melville to exhibit the piece for sale at the Heathcote sculpture exhibition and also received recognition and encouragement from all over the world from Sculptors and craftspeople. We have even been approached by an excellence in teacher organization from California and will have an article published on the piece by an international textile magazine later in the year. We are extremely grateful to the P&F for purchasing the work for the price of the materials. The plan…

YSS Newsletter 2016 Term 1 Week 9

Tuesday, 29 March 2016 09:09
Dear Yallingup Steiner School Community, I hope you all had lovely Easter break. It is always special to get that little bit of extra time to spend with family and friends. Please have a good read of this week's newsletter. There is still a bit to get through in the last couple of week's to the end of term and more holidays. If you could take particular care with parking around the School, especially in times of high traffic it would be very much appreciated. We know it is challenging here due to the limited space but our primary responsibility and care has to be to keep everyone safe. Please be very conscious and very slow. I hope you all get to enjoy the Harvest table and the Autumn celebrations this week and to marvel over your brave, primary children as they do their Courage Test. Warm regards, {phocadownload view=file|id=176|text=YSS…
