Parents reminded of code of conduct
Parents and carers of students at Woy Woy Public School have been reminded of the Parent and Carer Code of Conduct after the school received a report of "less than desirable" behaviour at a recent sporting event.
Principal Ms Ona Buckley said: "It has been reported at a recent sporting venue where students were competing as a team with other schools that the behaviour of a parent/carer was less than desirable in front of the teacher, students and other persons watching the game.
"This is a timely reminder to make sure we all understand how important it is to abide by the Parent and Carer Code of Conduct.
"It is extremely important we make sure our students are safe and feel secure at all times, especially when they are outside of school representing at sporting events," Ms Buckley said.
"Our school sport teams often attend other sporting grounds to play against teams from other schools under our Primary Schools Sport Association program.
"This is a program run throughout NSW for all public schools.
"Whenever our students are attending sporting events they are under the care of the teachers accompanying them and the umbrella of the school's wellbeing policy.
"Parents and carers who attend these sporting events to watch their children compete are required to keep to the guidelines of the school policies, especially the Parent and Carer Code of Conduct which extends to all venues where students are under the supervision of the school."
