While we understand that it is natural that children wish to carry familiar toys with them and to show their friends items they consider precious, it has been our experience that bringing toys from home to school can create difficult situations for our staff to manage.
Having toys at school can often cause conflict between peers that they cannot cope with or resolve amicably. Children have difficulty sharing a particular toy, and other children may feel upset or anxious when someone else has a special toy, and they don’t.
For this reason, we would ask that children do not bring toys or games from home. This includes Pokemon and other trading cards. If students bring any of these items to school, they will be asked to put them away in their bag.
