School rules

At Wagga Wagga Public School, five basic rules apply:

  • Show care and consideration towards others
  • Work and play safely
  • Respect the rights and property of others
  • Co-operate with teachers and fellow students
  • Take pride in myself and work to the best of my ability

Library

The library is open for borrowing every day during class time. 

Monday - Thursday - Lunchtimes 1:40 pm - 2 pm

Each class has a weekly library lesson. Library bags are needed for borrowing.

The Scholastic Book Club operates in the school. Orders are processed through the school. The Scholastic's Book Fair is conducted twice a year, usually Term 2 and 4.

Lost property

Look for lost property inside and outside classrooms, in hallways, in the lost property box and on the pegs on the outside wall of the double storey building. If unsuccessful, enquire at the Office.

Lost property is held until the end of each term and then displayed for children to collect. Unclaimed property goes to a charity organisation.

Medication

To safely manage your child’s medication needs, all medication needs to be labelled with a chemist prescription label and be in the original packaging. All children require an indemnity form available from the Office indicating dosage amount and time of administration. This form needs to be completed by a parent/carer otherwise we cannot administer any medication. This medication is stored in a locked cupboard at school.

Asthma education usually says to keep “puffer” with the child at all times.

It is important that:

  • We have a signed indemnity permission note to administer any medication, not a handwritten note.
  • Actual dosage to be used is written down on the form available in the Office.
