JUNIOR SITE FOOTPATH ACCESS CHANGES

As you may have noticed the expansion of the Junior Site has commenced and as from Monday, 20 May 2019 there will be changes to footpath access to the School.

The back of the school will be fenced off on Friday afternoon, this means that foot and pedal traffic will no longer be able to enter the school this way. You will be able to access the school via the new basketball courts from the shops, the Senior Site carpark and the sport fields carpark. Click on this link to view the map.

The access point beside the portables will also be affected and closed from Monday, 20 May 2019.

Please be mindful of the construction vehicle access at/near the shops. Construction vehicles are to have no access during the main drop off and pick up times.  Please be cautious at all times.

The school will be providing sketches and plans of the expansion project on the website and at the P&C meeting to be held on Wednesday, 22 May 2019 at 6.00pm on the Junior Site.

Democracy in Action

Senior site timetable changes for Friday’s

At Gold Creek School we really value student’s opinions and input. Due to student’s request to review Friday’s timetable a survey was conducted with students and staff resulting in the majority voting in favour of changing the break time starting this Friday.

 

The timetable will be as normal up until 12:20pm. Then instead of having Break 2 at 12:20pm students will go to Line F (Week A) and Line B (Week B) from 12:20pm - 1:20pm.

 

 Break 2 will now be from 1:20pm - 2pm and then students will only have one lesson after Break 2. This will be Line C (Week A) and Line D (Week B).

 

A new timetable reflecting the changes will be sent to students this week.
