• Correct and named school uniform
• Named black leather shoes for Winter

• A named bottle for drinking water
• A lunchbox containing enough healthy food for the day – fruit/veges, sandwiches
How can I help my child ‘be their best’?
• Send you child to school with a satisfied ‘tummy’ after a nutritious breakfast at home – weetbix without sugar, porridge, toast, eggs
• Ensure your child has enough sleep and is in bed before 8 p.m each night
• Keep your child warm and dry by providing the correct school uniform
• Keep your child at Yendarra School as changing schools disrupts learning
