We will be holding a Working Bee on the 18th of March from 1pm to 4pm. The main focus of the working bee will be the preparation and painting of the further soccer goals to have the net put in place. We will also be spending effort cleaning up fallen trees and limbs on the Phillip Street side of the oval. If you can donate an hour or two of your time to assist it would be gratefully appreciated. If you have a trailer and can do a tip run please bring it along.
The Launceston City Council have approved the development application for the Kinder Hub. Read more about it here.
The ELPSP&F Executive have created a Land Swap Information for Members document that answers many of the questions members may have about the Land Swap, to inform them of the details of the Land Swap, and provide an explanation of the reasons, benefits, impacts and risks to the P&F. Please take the time to read the document so you can be an informed member.
We hope to have a draft agreement from the DoE early in 2018. The Executive will then review it, seek advice on it, and continue negotiations with the DoE to get the best outcome for the P&F Association and the school.
This is a gentle reminder that dogs are not permitted on the oval or surrounds at any time (not just during school hours) either on or off-leash. The P&F have recently received a number of reports of people exercising their dogs on the oval. The reason for the ban on dogs is for health and safety issues, relating specifically to dog faeces. The school grounds-person currently has to clean up dog faeces before the school day because of people not cleaning up after their dogs. Even if you are doing the right thing by cleaning up after your dog, the signage around the oval clearly states that dogs are not permitted on the oval and surrounds and we ask that you exercise your dog at the authorised dog exercise areas. A link to a map of dog exercise areas in Launceston is available at https://www.launceston.tas.gov.au/Parks-and-Gardens.
The P&F recommend that anyone volunteering at P&F events hold a Working with Vulnerable People (RWVP) card. You can apply for the volunteer registration by going to http://www.justice.tas.gov.au/working_with_children/application. The cost is $18.36 for the volunteer only registration.
