The behaviour expectations of our school is extended to View Road during these visits. View Road is a PB4L school and we will be utilising our own PB4L programme for the time our students are there.
Your child will be visiting undertaking Technology learning once every fortnight. It is important that every student wears closed in shoes for safety reasons during their Technology learning.
