Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

Happy New Year to our Senator Gibson families!

We hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing winter break! We have many exciting learning activities to look forward to in 2018. Basketball is already under way for our Intermediate students along with Colouring Club & Homework Club, Me to We, Battle of the Books, Lego Robotics, Talent Show tryouts and our new PALS Program (Playground Activity Leaders). Western Day, and Pita Pit/Sundae and Pizza Day are special days to look forward to this month as well. Please remind your child(ren) to listen to the morning announcements and check the school calendar so they know when and where these activities are taking place. Thank you to our amazing staff at Senator Gibson for their hard work and dedication in ensuring all students feel important, welcome and successful. A reminder that the colder weather is here and all students are expected to be outside for 20 minutes, twice daily during our fitness breaks. Please ensure that your child(ren) are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions. Hats, coats, boots and mitts are essential. Term One Reports will be coming home on February 9th . We appreciate your continued support and communication through agendas, email, phone calls and meetings and look forward to continuing to work closely with all of you over the next few months. We are truly thankful for the wonderful Senator Gibson community that we work in!

Our best wishes for a happy 2018!

Students will not be permitted to enter the school through the front doors unless they are arriving after the bell.

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:

There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.

We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach!  We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school.  We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.

As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation.  We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.  If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.

On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
