Hi everyone, In North Bay ETNS we like to keep lines of communication open. However, from time to time there can be confusion as to what procedures to follow and this can cause delays finding a resolution.

The appropriate procedure can be found in our Positive Behaviour Code. Go to school plan and then policies and you will find the policy on page 31 of the Positive Behaviour Code.

Our intention is always to work together with parents/guardians to find solutions.

Half-Day School Closure on Wednesday February 14th 2018 @ 12.15

The Department of Education has recently asked all schools to close for two half days of training in the new Child Protection procedures. The new Child Protection procedures indicate that all teachers are now mandated people for reporting suspicions of abuse/harm. This is a huge change for staff.

The Department is asking all schools to have their Risk Assessment done and their Child Safeguarding Policy in place and on display by March 11th 2018. The school will have to close on Wednesday February the 14th at 12.15 to enable staff to be ready to put together the new policy and to do the risk assessment.  We thought that, as we closing on February the 15th & 16th for midterm break this would have the least impact on parents.

Our children’s safety is of paramount importance.
