Mrs Lough and I have been very busy with school tours for Foundation 2017. It is terrific to hear from our potential parents that Mentone Park has such a wonderful reputation in the community (something we already knew!) and that they are so keen to come here.
Don't forget if you have younger siblings beginning at MPPS next year, please collect an enrolment form from the office and complete ASAP.
The Department of Education have developed a Community Code of Conduct for parents, students and staff working in our schools. Schools are working with your most valued possession - your children! When issues arise at school for your child, it is natural that you always want what is best for them and to ensure matters are resolved quickly and positively. As schools, we want the same outcome! It is my role as Principal to ensure the well being of all students at Mentone Park PS and to maintain a positive, harmonious school climate. By following the Code of Conduct we work together to achieve our goal of providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for your children to become confident and creative individuals.

FROM THE ADMINISTRATION TEAM
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Please see below some reminders from the Administration Team.
Just a reminder that parents must come into the office to SIGN IN your child if they are late and also SIGN OUT your child if they are leaving early.
Please make sure you SIGN IN at the office if you are volunteering in the classroom or helping out in Kids' Café. Could we please ask you to check if you have accidentally taken any visitors passes home, as we are missing quite a few.
Just a reminder to please make sure you place your child's order before 9am Friday mornings. Orders can be placed at any time during the week.
Every Friday we have a number of students coming to the office at lunch time to advise that they haven't received their order.
To check that your child's order has been placed successfully, go into QkR and sign into My Receipts to ensure your child's order has gone through.
We appreciate your assistance with this.

All Excursion Permission Forms will now be available for signing on QkR under School Payments and Excursions.
