 NOTICES

 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

 
IMPORTANT NOTICE
DROP OFF/PICK UP
PROCEDURES 
We are still seeing parents and others driving in the parking area when dropping off and collecting students in the morning and afternoon. If you are having someone else collect/pick-up your child please inform them that they are not to drive into or back up in the parking area.   This is very unsafe and dangerous for our students and staff.
DROP OFF/ PICK UP PROCEDURES:
·        Parents should drive into the gate and pull forward into one of the spots to drop off and pick up students.
·        Students should walk along the median, across the crossing and along the side of the building to get to the line-up area.
·        Parents please do not pull into the parking lot area, or spots, as staff need to park for the beginning of their work day. (We do place cones across the entry area to remind you not to drive into the main lot) Additionally, the students need to walk to their transportation in the afternoon. Please do not drive into the lot in the afternoon.
·        Do not allow children to run across the parking lot as we want to ensure their safety and avoid someone being hit by a reversing car.
·        We know that rainy days can be a challenge, but we do request that everyone is mindful of these procedures.
 
We would appreciate your support concerning these procedures.

Is very high.

Leaving/Entering the School Premises
 
·         Students are not allowed to leave the school during the school day, unless a request from a parent/guardian has been received.  Students will carry a permission slip when leaving the school for any reason during the day.  Upon the student’s return, the office should be informed and the permission slip submitted for record-keeping purposes.
·         Parents/Guardians/Visitors – when entering the school during the school day please make your first stop the school office where you will be asked to sign-in for the security and safety of our students.
 
 
CLOTHING/BELONGINGS:
· Please ensure that ALL of your child’s belongings are clearly labeled with their name.  This includes—school  shirts, pants, sweaters, P.E.’s, lunch bags, etc.  Many items look alike and we want students to be able to identify their items.

HOMEWORK:
· Your child will normally have homework every Monday—Thursday night.  Please ensure that your child completes their homework each night, you sign their homework each night, you review their spelling words daily and that they read to you (and you read aloud to them) each night.
 
GRUB DAYS
· On out of uniform days, please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed.  For girls wearing ‘leggings’ this means that they should wear a shirt or dress that at least reaches the hip level.  Boys need to ensure that pants are at their waist and that they are wearing a belt on uniform and out of uniform days.
 
CELL PHONES
· Please be reminded of the cell phone policy that was forwarded to you on October 11, 2011.  Any cell phones used during the school day will be confiscated.  I would also encourage parents to check their child’s text messages, blackberry messenger and emails to monitor the content.
 
OTHER:

Thank you for your attention to these matters.
 
                          Kind Regards

 ARTICLE FROM THE BERMUDA SUN - Minister Gibbons visits Port Royal

Picture

Monday, June 02, 2014

Minister Gibbons with Port Royal Primary School student in years P4 and P5.
The Department of Education’s Portuguese Language programme began four years ago at the primary level and was restructured in January this year after a dedicated teacher was assigned to the programme. In alignment with the Elementary Level Curriculum and Modern Languages of the National UK Curriculum, students at Heron Bay and Port Royal have received instruction one period a week for thirty minutes.
Heron Bay Primary P2 and P3 students and Port Royal Primary P4 and P5 students have been learning the language at the direction of their teacher, Patricia Eatherley.
This morning at the Port Royal Primary School, Minister of Education and Economic Development, Dr The Hon. Grant Gibbons, JP, MP attended the first of two assemblies planned for the students to demonstrate what they have learned since January.  Minister Gibbons spoke with the students before presenting them with certificates.  He said, “This is the right age for you to learn a language because it will stay with you for life. I encourage you to keep practicing and learning the Portuguese language and culture. You did a terrific job today, well done.”
The goal of the Portuguese Program is to expose students at an early age to a second language spoken in Bermuda and to encourage awareness of cultural similarities and differences. The goals of the programme are grounded on the principles that children at the preschool and primary age acquire language naturally and can readily learn a second language if the environment for the second language is similar to that of the predominant language (English).  Further, children at the preschool and primary age can understand the concept of culture through comparisons of cultures studied with their own; whether it is family, school, or broader community/societal culture.
The Department of Education plans to continue offering the Portuguese Language Programme at these two schools in September 2014, with a future goal to deliver Foreign Language in all primary schools.
