The school is currently investigating after school evening experiences as preparation for the Camping Program which is offered, as part of the Physical Education Program, to students, in years 3 to 6. Alternate arrangements for payment can be organised where necessary; please contact the Principal, Assistant Principal or Business Manager.
To enrich class programs, teachers may plan excursions or incursions to provide all children with opportunities for first-hand learning experiences. This adds depth to the students' understanding and knowledge of particular topics. To assist with budgeting for these events, parents are notified as soon as possible. Notices will be sent home informing parents of the intended excursion/incursion details and associated costs. It is vital that the permission slip section of the notice is returned promptly to the school. Without the return of a signed permission slip, a child is unable to participate in an excursion. Payment for the excursion/incursion must also be made prior to participation. Alternate arrangements for payment can be arranged, please contact the Principal, Assistant Principal or Business Manager. (For further information refer to School Funding section.)
Note: School uniform is compulsory and must be worn at all times on excursions, including sporting events.
At Moorabbin, homework is viewed as a shared responsibility between parents, teachers and students. All students from Prep to Year 6 are encouraged to do homework. Homework is of an informal nature in years Prep – 1 and is more formal in Years 2 – 6. Expectations of homework requirements are usually provided to parents in Term 1.
