Classes begin at 8.35am and conclude at 3.00pm.
Lunch Breaks: 11.00 - 11.30 am and 1.30 - 2.00pm.
Please note that we take responsibility for supervising children from 8:20 am in the morning until the bus arrives (approx. 3:15 pm) in the afternoon. Children at school outside of those hours will not be supervised and we do not take any responsibility for them. We do, however, have Outside School Care facilities, which can be utilised. For security purposes all children arriving prior to 8:10 a.m. will automatically be sent to Outside School Hours Care. A fee is payable.
Children waiting to be collected by parents after school will wait in the designated area. This area is supervised by a teacher every day until 3.20 pm. If a child remains uncollected at this time, unless otherwise instructed the child will be taken to OHSC and may be collected from there. A fee is payable. This policy is to prevent children waiting unsupervised, as the office closes at 3.15 pm, and quite often teaching staff have left the premises by this time. If you prefer that your children wait unsupervised, then a note to confirm this will be required.
Children arriving late to school should be brought to the school office. Parents will be required to come to the office to sign the Partial Absence Book. This ensures that we can offer the best supervision within our Workplace Health and Safety requirements. The secretary will then arrange for the child to move to class.
Children are not permitted to leave the school grounds during school hours without written permission. Parents wishing to pick up their children early need to come to the office and their child will be sent for.
Should you require access to your children during school hours, it is policy that all enquires are made to the Principal through the secretary. The register is on the front counter of the office and should be signed on arriving and leaving the school building.
No parent is to go to classrooms without registering.
This procedure is necessary to ensure the safety of all students. The Principal is to be kept informed about custody arrangements if this applies to your family, and supplied with all relevant court papers. Unless we have these copies we must give both parents equal access rights.
