Breakfast club to run four days a week

The breakfast club at Ettalong Beach Public School will run four days a week this term, according to principal Ms Lynn Balfour.

"Breakfast Club will now run Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays," she said.

"The increase in days is due to generous Year 6 student volunteers and staff."

She said a Woy Woy bakery was providing bread for the toast.

School photos will be taken this Tuesday and Thursday, October 20 and 22.

"Envelopes for school photos, the Covid way, were distributed last term."

She said the Selective High School application process current Year 5 students who would be in Year 7 in 2022 was open until November 16.

"All applications must be completed online.

"More information will be sent home with the Homenote for Year 5 students only."

Ms Balfour said enrolments to attend the school next year should be completed as soon as possible.

"Enrolment can be done online or in person.

"We will keep parents of Kindy 2021 informed of developing Department of Education guidelines.

"We are looking into ways that we can support our 2021 kindergarten students with orientation and also our students moving on to high school.

"We are also amid discussions around how we can still hold our Year 6 Farewell under the modified guidelines.

"These are trying times but we are certainly proving to be patient and thoughtful in our endeavours to care for our students."
