Welcome to Pets Club
We have a ‘selection’ of fabulous pets at Skye Primary School! Many of these pets are a part of our science program, and students from P – 6 can enjoy interacting with our ‘pets’ during Pets Club. Many students also enjoy the leadership responsibility of caring for our hens at Chook Palace – feeding the hens daily, providing water, clearing and tiding the hen house and of course collecting eggs.
Car Parking Options
Skye Primary School has ‘off street’ parking for the use of the school community. The parent and school community car park sits next to the school with entry and exit from Ballarto Road.
The parent car park offers both ‘drive in and park’, as well as ‘drive in –drop of’ options in the mornings and in the afternoons. For working families this provides an attractive option as children can be dropped off at school on the way to work. We ask that all users of the school’s parking facilities ensure they are always careful in the manner that they enter and exit the school premises to ensure safety for all. Strict speed limits of 5km apply to all areas inside the school premises.
