A - Z Parent Guide
Lost Property is stored in red bins located in the Breezeway outside the Prep Learning Centre. It is the student’s responsibility to promptly collect any lost property. In order to keep our Lost Property under control, parent volunteers sort items into ‘labelled’ and ‘unlabelled’ piles on a regular basis. Clearly labelled items are returned to their owners and unlabelled items are donated to the Uniform Shop. At the end of each Term, ALL unclaimed items (named or unnamed) are donated to the Uniform Shop. Parents are notified ahead of time (via Compass) when a clean out is due to occur. We kindly ask parents to please: Return all items to the bins when checking for lost property (so they are not left on the ground to get wet and dirty).
Please encourage your child/ren to take responsibility for their uniform and to check that they bring home their own clothing only, and not the uniform items of other students. If you have any queries or wish to volunteer to help with the management of Lost Property, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To assist students and parents to be reunited with lost property, we have three items in our uniform range that have ‘Smart Tags’ in them – our Bomber Jacket, Zip through Polar Fleece and Polar Fleece. The Uniform Shop sells packs of 2 or 5 individual tags to sew into your apparel or second-hand uniform items of your choice.
A Smart Tag is a special orange label which is fitted with a microchip. Once the unique code on the label has been registered, a free SMS will be sent to you if your child’s garment has made its way to Lost Property – preferably for your child to collect!
Garments with Smart Tags should also be clearly labelled with your child’s name so they can recognise the item when collecting it from Lost Property.
