At Talara we are very fortunate to have three terrific adventure playgrounds for our students to use during the school day. Obviously students are always keen to try these out and test their ever developing physical skills. During the school day, any time students are permitted on these playgrounds it is a requirement that direct supervision is provided by a teacher.
Some parents may wish for students to have some extra time on the playground straight between 2:45pm and 3pm while they are here collecting their children. This is only possible if the parent is providing direct supervision at the playground with the child. All responsibility for the safe and appropriate use of the playground equipment at this time is placed on the supervising parent. No child is allowed on the play equipment without their parent right there with them.
I ask all parents to please support us in this safety requirement. If students are using the equipment unsupervised we will need to ban all access after school. Please note that younger siblings are not to be on any play equipment while classes are still in operation prior to 2:45pm.
