- Any children that are late to school, (after the morning bell @8:55 am) parents need to sign the children in at the office.
Parents are reminded to ensure that all your child's clothing is labelled very clearly. We have found that using a fabric pen on the collar or underside of your child's hat works well.
It is very hard to return clothing items to family's if there is no name.
- Please keep an eye on our FaceBook page for the latest happenings around the school. St Bede's FaceBook page
- Asthma Action Plans - Parents are reminded to update their childs Asthma Action plan each year with the office.
- Unwell Students (Cough, runny nose, fever etc.) If your child is unwell please keep them at home, to help prevent the spread of illness through the school.
For new parents and those who have never signed into the Compass portal - Compass logins were generated on the 1 February and will be in your email in box.
If your child is absent from school you are able to explain this absence through the Compass portal. There is no need to phone or email the school after doing the Compass notification.
Our School Counsellor, Faith, will be visiting St Bede's on Wednesdays this year. Please see the below information regarding the service and how to make an appointment.
How to make an appointment.
If your child was seen by the school counsellor in previous years and you would like them to receive support in 2024, we require you to complete a new counselling registration form. The link can be found below. New referrals and requests can be made via the same link.
Parent consent for counselling continues to be required for all primary school students and will be sought and provided via email. Where parents are separated, we require the written consent of both parents. Once the referral has been received, I will contact parents on a Wednesday to further discuss the referral and determine whether school counselling can meet your child’s needs or if an external referral may be more appropriate.
Referrals can be submitted here https://mccg.my.site.com/housing/s/school-referral-form

St Bede's is a Nut Free school and as such the sharing of any food, lollies or confectionery is not encouraged, as we have several students that have severe reactions. Therefore Nutella, Peanut Butter and any other nut butters are strongly discouraged.
