To avoid disruption to valuable teaching / learning time, telephone calls will only be transferred to teachers and students during class time in the case of an emergency.  Administration staff are available to take messages which will be passed on to students and teachers. 

Arriving at school

 
Your child has a better opportunity to perform well if they arrive at school on time to prepare for the school day and formal instruction which begins at 8:40am.
 
For this reason we ask all parents/ carers to ensure children arrive at school just prior to, but not later than 8:40am.
 
Students arriving to school prior to the 8:40am bell are required to sit, with their bags, under A Block. There is no supervision provided before 8:30am.

Late arrivals

 
Formal instruction begins at 8:40am. Students arriving after this time are to collect a ‘Late Slip’ from the office and explain the reason for their delay.
 

Departure from school

 
Students are dismissed at 3:00pm.  Once dismissed, students are to proceed home or attend afternoon programs as directed by their parents/carers. Should a student not be collected by 3:10pm or an alternative time as planned by the family, the students are to report to the office.
 
Parents/carers who collect students each afternoon in private vehicles are asked to ensure that their children are not left waiting for long periods after they have been dismissed.
 
Parents are asked not to drive into the school for safety reasons.
 

Students collected early

 
Parents/carers wishing to collect students from school early are required to:
  • Preferably advise the school by note or phone of the intended early collection the day of, or prior to, the day of early collection.
  • Report to the Administration Office upon arrival to sign the child out.  An Early Departure Authorisation slip will be issued.
  • Present the Early Departure Authorisation slip to the classroom teacher when collecting the child.
 
If a person other than the parents/carers is to collect a child early from school, they will require identification and need to be listed on your child’s file as an approved emergency contact or family member.
 
Due to our duty of care responsibilities we actively discourage requests to allow students to leave our care to make their own way home unsupervised by an adult during school time.  Therefore, written or verbal requests from parents/carers will be referred to the Principal where alternative arrangements will be negotiated with the parent/carer by phone.
