Community

Birthday and Celebration
St Anne’s Primary School believes it is important to acknowledge and celebrate special milestones particularly when children do not have family members in Harvey with whom to celebrate and the school is their community. Many families like to make a cake to bring to school on the day or invite children from the class to an outside party or get together. This policy provides clarity and consistency and promotes safety and inclusion for all members of our community when celebrating birthdays and other special occasions.
