Bicycle Helmets and Scooters

It is imperative that we have parent support with regard to bicycle helmets. All students who ride a bicycle to school MUST wear a helmet. Parents will be contacted immediately if a student is riding a bicycle without a helmet.

Students riding scooters to school must also bring a padlock so they can be secured safely in the bicycle shed.

Fountain Gate Primary School

We ask parents to reinforce to their older siblings who attend Fountain Gate SC who collect younger siblings from Fountain Gate PS that they wait for their younger brothers or sisters at the allocated areas set by the Primary School.

Parking and Speed Limits

We would like to remind parents that the speed limits during designated times around schools is 40 km/h. We would also like to encourage parents to follow the parking regulations stipulated around the school, in particular the area near the Dandenong Valley SDS and the staff car park. The area around the school is very busy, both before and after school, and the ongoing support of all parents is greatly appreciated.

School Shoes

Traditional lace-up leather, polishable school shoes are required. Black runners are not acceptable. Girls may wear T Bar shoes that have a solid sole and leather uppers, shoes that are flimsy and similar to ballet slippers will not be permitted. Girls are required to have the buckles secured. If they are broken, they must be repaired or replaced. We have a number of areas which require feet to be fully covered e.g. Science labs, Technology, Home Economics for safety reasons. Note: Casual shoes such as Vans, which are sold as school shoes, do not meet our School Uniform Policy.

Staff Car Park

We ask for parents support by NOT using the staff car parks to drop off or pick up their children. Please use the parking lanes in Josephine Avenue or Victoria Road.

Robotics Club:

This week Students began the construction of Mindstorm Robotics kits in the Endeavour Center. Using engineering skills, teamwork and a lot of determination they are creating a team of Lego robots to perform different tasks and have many uses. The robots can be programmed and rebuilt so there are many great designs they aim to test, and lots of great challenges to attempt once built. Students will be meeting every Thursday Lunch in the Endeavour Center to build and program the Mindstorm robots.

The Robotics Club consists of the following students;
