Medical

A few reminders with the safety of our students in mind.

– At Newtown Primary School we do not share food. We have a number of students with allergies and it could put them at an unnecessary risk.

– Similarly, we are a Nut Free School and H2O only.

Please respect these expectations with the safety of all of our students in mind.
