Children are not to arrive at school before 8.00 am. Between 8.00 am - 8.30 am students are to remain quietly seated on the parade area. Children should not enter rooms until after 8.30 am and not before teachers arrive.
Arriving late to school or leaving early
When students arrive after the start of the Morning Session they are to report to the School Office to receive a late pass before going to class. If you wish to pick your child up early from school, this must also be done through the School Office as students need to be signed out via our computer system.
Getting ready for class
Students are expected to be at school by 8.50am to prepare for lessons which commence at 8.55am. Music is played to mark the end of playtime and for children to move straight to their classes. At the end of lunch breaks students line up in class lines and wait for their teachers.
Children sit in specific class areas while eating during their break times. This is during the first 15 minutes of each break time. At the end of eating time, students must wait until dismissed. There is an expectation that everyone "does the right thing" by placing all rubbish in bins. Drink containers sent to school are to be unbreakable (plastic etc), not glass.
