Event: Melrose Primary School Community Meet and Greet Breakfast to be held in conjunction with the Queen's Baton Relay.
Date: Thursday, February 15, 2018
Event time: 8.30am to 9:30am
Location: Melrose Primary School
The Gold Coast is hosting the Commonwealth Games in April, 2018. Wodonga has been selected to be a host city for the Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR). We are very lucky to have the Baton Relay pass by the front of our school. We would like to invite families to accompany students to school, for an informal meet and greet while enjoying breakfast (that will be provided) and to watch the Baton Relay. In order to host this international event, Wodonga Council has been asked to close all roads along the route.
Silva Drive & Melrose Drive will be closed from 
9am until 10am on this day.
To ensure our display and the viewing is not blocked by vehicles, car parks at the front of the school in Silva Drive will not be available until after the relay has passed.
With the road being closed during this time, students and their families will be able to safely line both sides of the street and be assured of a great view. During Term Four last year, the whole school contributed to a Commonwealth Games Display which will decorate our front fence line. Please make sure you arrive at school on time (before 9am) on this day to avoid the road closures in place. If you are just dropping off please use Shultz Court. If you intend to participate in the event, an alternate parking area is Higginson Court, which will take you to the oval area at the side of the school. If you have any queries, please contact the office. I look forward to sharing this special event with you.
