Update to Fruit Fly restrictions: 
3 Feb 2021

    The department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) has updated its information about fruit fly restrictions in South Australia.

    This might change the types of fruit and vegetables your child can bring to school/preschool/child care.

    New colour coded maps for metropolitan Adelaide - click here for map residents show the red outbreak areas, yellow suspension areas, and green areas not affected by fruit fly.

    Our school, preschool, children’s centre is located in the yellow suspension area.

    If you live in the red outbreak area:

    Your child must not bring any fresh fruit or vegetables on this list - click here to school, preschool or child care. This applies even if it has been cut up.

    Instead, PIRSA has provided a list of alternative fresh fruit and vegetable options (Click here) suitable for lunch and breaks.

    If you live in the yellow suspension area

    Your child can bring any type of fresh fruit or vegetable to school, preschool or child care.

    If you live in the green not impacted area

    Your child can bring any type of fresh fruit or vegetable to school, preschool or child care.

    All fruit or vegetables on this list (click here) must be eaten and disposed of at our school, preschool or children’s centre. These items cannot return home at the end of the day and will be disposed of safely at our school/preschool/child care centre’s grounds.

    Grated, dried, frozen, cooked or pureed fruit and vegetables of any kind are acceptable in any area.

    We appreciate your cooperation as we help protect South Australia from fruit fly.

    COVID UPDATE

    With the easing of restrictions across South Australia, Linden Park Primary School will opening up our school to parents and volunteers in a number of ways.

    We still need to ensure we follow safe Covid practices however including signing in using the State Government QR codes which are displayed around the school and maintaining safe hygiene and social distancing protocols.

    We are delighted to be able to reconnect with our community with the guidelines below and we will continue to review our practices as the year progresses.

    1. Volunteers : We will reintroduce parent volunteers into the buildings to listen to reading and support teachers and students.  Your child’s teacher will let you know details to ensure that all volunteers are on a scheduled basis and sign in using the school QR codes.  QR code sheets will be display at all building entrances.
    2. Parents attending assemblies: In order to maintain adequate social distancing we will extend  an invitation to parents of the classes that are presenting that week. Your child’s teacher will let you know when this is happening.
    3. Excursions: We will continue to allow parents on excursions, if needed, to assist with student supervision.  Volunteers need to ensure the school has a copy of their RAN training - see SZapp for details.
    4. Swimming Carnival: Burnside Pool has a 750 person capacity, so parents will be able to attend as spectators. We will have our own COVID Marshall on site and we would appreciate your co-operation in maintaining social distancing guidelines.
    5. Parent Teacher Interviews: Parent, student and teacher face to face interviews will occur towards the end of the term.  Details to follow shortly.
    6. Musical: Great news - we will be holding our bi-annual school musical in Term 3 .  Planning is underway and students have already attended auditions and are busy learning lines. This event will be again held at the Norwood Town Hall and we will be guided by the regulations at that time.
    7. Governing Council: Meetings have recommenced face to face and parents will be invited to join sub committees in the near future.

    Thank you all for your support over the past 12 months and we have appreciated your co-operation in helping us maintain a safe environment for all of our students.
