Temporary School - Daily Routines

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Our time at the current UPS campus is drawing to a close, at least for the next two years.  From the commencement of term 1, 2018 we will operate from the temporary school site in Wentworth Park.  Here is some information that will help your family with this transition.

Staff Development Day – Monday 29 January, 2018.

Years 1 to 6 – start on Tuesday 30 January, 2018.

Kindergarten 2018 – start on Wednesday 31 January, 2018.  Separate invitations have been sent to those families.

Start and finish times – remain the same – 9:00am to 3:00pm.

School Telephone number and fax - remain the same – Ph: 9660 2130 ; Fax: 96928823.

School’s postal address – 177 Wattle St Glebe, NSW, 2037.

School’s website - remains the same – ultimopublicschool.com 

School’s email – remains the same – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Morning drop off­ - we encourage families to walk to school where possible.  If you’re dropping off children by car, we suggest parking on Quarry St and Jones St and walking them across the footbridge.  The school’s main entrance will be a few metres from the bottom of the footbridge steps.  There might be some parking on Wentworth Park Rd and along the adjacent streets (St Johns Rd, Mitchell St). Please check signage for parking restrictions.

Home time arrangements – we will continue to operate with the same afternoon arrangements, so families will have to enter the school playground and collect children after making eye contact with the class teacher.

Bus arrangements - The morning bus from Pyrmont will continue to stop on Jones St, so children will disembark at the Jones St bus stop, walk across the footbridge and into the school through the main gate.  Mr Accaria will greet children at the bus stop for the first couple of weeks of Term 1.

Each afternoon Mr Accaria will walk children who take the bus across the footbridge to the bus stop. 

Enquiries to School office – enter via main gate which will remain open during the school day and that will only give you access to an external courtyard.  There is secondary gate through which the office staff can provide electronic access into the school precinct.  That means the school site will be kept secure apart from the hours of 8:30 to 9:05, then 2:45 to 3:20.

School uniform sales – will still take place on Thursdays 8:30 to 9:00 at the canteen window.

I’m sure there will be more items of information we’ll distribute at the commencement of the 2018 school year. 

In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and please email questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Kind regards,

Nic Accaria
