Check the changes to fruit fly zones before you pack that lunch box. 🍇🍏🍍🥥🍌🥕🥑🥝🍑🍐🍉‼️Important changes to fruit fly restrictions in the north-east 🪰 🍎🍊🍌🥭
The north east suburbs are in a unique spot with around half of our suburbs inside a fruit fly suspension area (yellow) and the other half outside (green) and not currently impacted by the restrictions.
This has left many families confused about what you can and can't pack in lunch boxes.
Changes have now been made and will hopefully make it easier to understand:
🟢 If you live in a GREEN area, and go to school/work in a YELLOW area you can take fruit and veg that fruit fly like into the yellow area, but you cannot take it back into the green. (example - if kids don't eat all the fruit in their lunchbox whilst at a yellow area school, and you live in a green area, you will need to dispose of the fruit inside the yellow zone).
🟡 If you live in a YELLOW area, and go to school/work in a GREEN area, you can’t take the fruit or vegetables that fruit fly like out of the yellow area and into the green area.
With a number of local schools very close to both sides of the suspension area it's important you check what restrictions apply to you. I understand it’s difficult for some who live just inside the yellow zone and only a few hundred metres away is your school that is in a green area and you can't pack your child’s favourite fruit as a result.
Hopefully, with no further outbreaks, restrictions will be lifted soon and our State’s horticultural industry will stay strong. For further info please head to: pir.sa.gov.au/biosecurity/fruit_fly_in_sa/faqs#movingfruit ... See MoreSee Less

Lots of first days tomorrow. All the best to all our toy library families heading into the class room. Here is some important information to keep everyone safe.It's a big exciting week for kids returning to school, and lots of little ones starting school. Those first day photos are such beautiful memories to look back on in years to come but this is a great reminder from the Daniel Morcombe Foundation about sharing those photos to social media.
Consider the following...
Who else might be looking?
What else might you be sharing?
Who owns the image?
Do not include in your social media post your child’s name, the address or suburb of the school they attend and only post greyscale pictures.
There's some excellent info on their website www.danielmorcombe.com.au
Take some time this week to have a read. ... See MoreSee Less
