Aranda Primary School is a registered Waste Wise school. The community is proud of its reputation as an environmentally and socially responsible community. The Environment Program links studies of society, health and evironment with a program of community action to improve the physical and social environments of the school and its neighbourhood. The program offers many different opportunities for the whole school community - students, parents, staff and friends of the school - to participate. The wonderful grounds at Aranda are the result of years of enthusiastic community and school involvement.
The school has an equity fund that is used to assist students attending camps and excursions if needed. Parents who require assistance from this fund should approach the Principal or Business Manager for confidential assistance.
Evacuation Drill is necessary for the safety of all those within the building and will be conducted at least twice a year to ensure all are familiar with the routine. Please obey all procedures if visiting the school during an evacuation.
Excursions and Camps
Educational excursions including camps are regarded as an integral part of the learning process and a fundamental part of children’s education. They provide experiences which stimulate curiosity and create springboards for further learning. Children are expected to participate as excursions are not isolated learning experiences. Written advice on excursions will be given to parents. If you have difficulty meeting the cost of an excursion your child will not be disadvantaged.
