Our first Family Movie Night was a great success!

Our final 30th anniversary event for the year was the Family Movie Night on Saturday 18 October. The event began with kids’ activities, including face painting, colouring, bubble blowing and a jumping castle! Specialty food trucks kept the crowds nourished and ‘EMERGE’, a band of Senior and Middle School students, provided the pre-movie entertainment. Over 500 people then gathered on the oval to watch ‘The Lion King’ on a big screen under the stars. It was a truly special event for the Northside community to celebrate the College’s 30th anniversary.

Safety Week at Northside

AAAAA kidsafe (3)

We are hosting our annual Safety Week from 13 to 17 October.

During this week, we encourage and help students, particularly in Junior School years, to identify and think about potential hazards wherever they are, and to know what to do about them. While child safety is primarily the responsibility of adults, this week recognises that children have the capacity to identify hazards in their environment themselves, once they are made aware of safety issues. The aim is to help them learn how to have fun while being aware of, and avoiding, potential hazards and the consequences of risky behaviours.

Kidsafe provides a range of online resources and activities, whilst the Kidsafe site for Western Australia site hosts a fun and interactive “Safety Island” game.

We’d like to remind students, staff and parents of ways they can help keep Northside a safe working and learning environment. Key messages for the 2014 Safety Week are:

  • Be aware of safety in relation to pick up and drop off times and zones
  • Be aware of safety around all roads, crossings and car parks
  • Volunteers to be aware of safe practices
  • For students, avoid unsafe behaviour such as standing on desks, sitting on railings and running/jumping down stairs
  • Use ladders appropriately
  • Use safe lifting practices
  • Be aware of posture and work space
  • Staff to be aware of Duty of Care

We thank the Northside Christian College community for its support of this initiative to maintain a safe College.
