The school day begins at 8:35am each morning. This is the time that children need to be in class. There is a warning bell at 8:25am that will inform the teachers to open their doors. Children are not permitted onto the school grounds before 8:10am unless they are participating in a scheduled school activity. Students should also not be left outside the school gates unattended.
Kindergarten and 3+ Program students are to be supervised by parents and carers until they are admitted into the classroom at 9:00am.
The gates will be locked at 9am each morning but anyone arriving after 8:30am will be asked to collect a late note from the office. All late arrivals should enter via the office to receive this late note. Kindergarten operate on a different timetable and this has already been explained to them.
Parents who wait with their children before school must ensure that they are being fully supervised, otherwise all children are to remain in the undercover area, the grassed area near the basketball/netball courts or the courtyard near the school administration. Due to the confined spaces near the classrooms we request that children supervised by their parents do not play in these areas.
The school gates will be locked during the day and the only entry into the school will be through the administration building. The gates are opened at 2:30pm each day and parents are welcome to sit and wait for their children in the school grounds. We would request that you do not enter the undercover area if a lesson is in progress for the safety of the children and yourself.
Supervision for pickup occurs from 2:55pm to 3:15pm. Any students remaining at the pick-up area at 3.15pm are taken to the school office where parents and carers can collect and sign them out.
