For parents that are interested and available to attend...

Life Education Australia are offering to facilitate a free information session to our Moriac PS parent community. The information session will be held this Friday at 10.00am (most likely in our Staff Room in the Admin Building). The session will provide parents with information about what the students will be learning in the Life Ed Van, as well as some tips and advice to help your children make safer and healthier choices in their lives.

ANZAC Day

Our School Captains attended and facilitated Anzac Day ceremonies today.

Alex and Isaac represented Moriac PS by attending a service and laying a wreath at the annual Johnstone Park event in Geelong. This service involves all school captains within our region, from both primary and secondary levels.

Then, this afternoon back at school, Zali and Grace conducted a service for all staff and students to pay their respects.

On behalf of our school community, we wish  to honour, respect, remember and recognise the service and sacrifice of all members of our Defence Forces, both past and present.

We look forward to seeing you back at school on Friday.

Keeping your kids safe

It is timely for families to remind your children about keeping Safe within the community .

The following safety tips are listed as a suggestion:

 Talk to your child about ‘stranger danger’, whilst also talking about strangers not always being a negative thing; such as uniformed emergency service personnel, employees at the local stores, etc

 Know where you children are at all times (Always accompany children to public toilets)

 Don’t get into a car with a stranger

 Get to know the local community and be aware of your surroundings and look out for people who look out of place

 Get to know your neighbours to create an engaged community where everybody looks out for one another.

Try using the following language when talking to your child about staying safe within the community:

  • Don’t say: Never talk to strangers.

  • Say: You should not approach just anyone. If you need help, look for a uniformed police officer, a store worker with a nametag, or a parent with children.

  • Don’t say: Stay away from people you don’t know.

  • Say: It’s important for you to get my permission before going anywhere with anyone.

  • Don't say: You can tell someone is bad just by looking at them.

  • Say: Pay attention to what people do. Tell me right away if anyone asks you to keep a secret, makes you feel uncomfortable, or tries to get you to go with them.
