New to Joey's?

Is your child new to Joey's?

  • The morning bell rings at 9:00 a.m. so the children should arrive at school by 8:50 a.m. (if not travelling by bus.)

  • All students will line up at 9:00 a.m. and then move into their classroom. School concludes at 3:20 p.m.

  • All books and pencils etc. are provided for your child. However if your child would like to bring his/her own pencils, this is optional.

  • The children need to bring their 'Crunch & Sip', morning tea and lunch.

  • At 10:00 a.m. each day the children stop lessons for 'Crunch & Sip'. This enables the children to have a drink of water and to eat some fruit. This is a voluntary activity and the water and fruit is brought from home. All fruit must be cut into bite-size pieces. The purpose of this activity is to encourage healthy eating and to give the children an energy boost in the morning.

  • Morning tea is from 11:00 a.m. - 11:20 a.m.

  • Lunch is from 1:00 p.m. - 1:50 p.m.

  • Our school canteen is open on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We are always grateful for help in the canteen and a note requesting helpers goes home with the first newsletter.

  • If your child wishes to order his/her lunch from the canteen, please write their name, class and what they wish to order on a paper lunch bag, with the correct money inside. The lunch orders are placed in the basket provided in the classroom. Any 'extras', eg, chips, ice blocks etc. are not included on the lunch order but can be purchased by the children at little lunch and big lunch. A canteen price list will go home with the first newsletter.

  • If you wish your child to buy something from the canteen at morning tea or lunch time, do not give them too much money and it is a good idea to put the money in a small plastic ziplock bag.

  • If your child is absent from school for any reason you are required to either send a note to the classroom teacher explaining the child's absence when he/she returns to school or phone the school explaining the absence or tell the teacher.

  • Thursday is sports day and the children should wear their sports uniform and during Terms 1 and 4 bring their swimmers and towel in a swimming bag (that is easy to carry) as the children will be going to the pool. The children walk to the pool and entry is $1.00 for non season ticket holders. All season ticket holders need to bring their season ticket.

  • The school newsletter, the About, is sent home with the eldest child in each family every Thursday. Please read the About as it has details of what's been happening at school and, importantly, what's coming up.

  • On the first day of school Kindergarten children will be given a Year 6 buddy.

  • All children are placed into a sporting house. The houses are as follows:

        Kurras - Blue, Cedars - Green, Peppers - Red, Gums - Yellow

  • Children will require a library bag. School library bags are available for $4.00 each or you may organise your own. You will be advised of your child's library day at the beginning of Term 1.

  • The school uniform shop is open each school day from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

  • If you wish your child to catch the bus to and/or from school you will need to contact the bus companies to determine which bus to catch. The two bus companies are Ogden's Coaches in Wellington, telephone 68452800 or Langley's Coaches Dubbo, telephone 68828977.
