Grade 3-5 Swimming

A reminder that all Grade 3-5 students begin the Swimming and Water Safety Program on Monday. This program runs every day for the next 2 weeks.

Please ensure that your child brings swimming gear (including bathers and swimming cap-these will be available at the pool at no cost if they don't already have one), a towel, and plastic bag to put wet clothes in.

Crazy Hat Day


A reminder that the SRC are holding a "Crazy Hat Day" Fundraiser for Colony 47 tomorrow, Friday 10th of August.

To participate in the fundraiser, wear a crazy hat of your choice and bring an item to donate that a homeless person might want or need like a toothbrush, blanket, pillow or a small present like a notepad or pencil. 

Thank you,


Tea Towel orders


Tea towel orders have now been extended to this Wednesday, 8th August.

Order forms are available on the Margate Primary School P & F Facebook page or at the office. Please support the P & F by purchasing a tea towel (or more!). These tea towels are a great keepsake of your child/ren's time at Margate Primary, and make great Christmas presents!

Thank you for your continued support.

Be a CyberSmart Parent

ALERT - Social Media and your child - Be a Cyber Smart Parent

Students at Margate are on social media sites that they are not meant to be on as they are too young.

SnapChat, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, Twitter, Instagram are only for children 13 years and older. Even YouTube is meant to be for 18 year plus!

It is very important that you check the devices in your home (phones, iPads, computers) so you are aware of what social media your child is accessing. It is also important to check whether they are using your social media with their own log in. There are parental blocking programs that you can use.

Detailed information can be found on these government websites:
