Students should arrive at school after 8:40 am. A teacher supervises students in the playground between 8:40 am and 9:10 am.

Your child must arrive before 9:10 am as a late start to the day can be unsettling for them. Please advise your child’s teacher who will be picking your child up each day from school. If there is any change to this arrangement please inform the teacher in writing or phone the school office.

If you need to pick your child up early you must sign them out at the office and hand the Early Leave note to the class teacher. Late arrivals must be signed in at the office by parents and the child should hand a Late pass to the class teacher.

Students should be picked up promptly at 3:10 pm. If you are running late please phone the office to let us know. Students who have not been picked up on time will be taken to the office and supervised by a member of the executive.

Under no circumstances is a student allowed to wait at a school gate for a late pick up. For safety reasons all students must wait at the front office.
