School Hours and Attendance

Our school timetable

8:40am School commences

10:50am – 11:05am Recess

1:10pm – 1:45pm Lunch

2:50pm School concludes

For the safety of all students, students should not arrive at school prior to 8:15am. To ensure a positive start to the day, students should arrive at school punctually with sufficient time to organise personal belongings prior to class. Students arriving after the school day commences at 8:40am should first report to the office to obtain a late pass before going to class.

Every minute/day counts

Developing the habit of going to school every day is vital so children do not miss out on important ideas and skills they need for future learning.

Did you know

If one of your children is unwell and unable to attend school, please advise the office as soon as practicable. 

The school uses a SMS messaging service which, on every school day at approximately 10am, will automatically send a text message to a parent or care giver if a child is marked absent without explanation. Parents are expected to respond to these messages.

Collecting students during school hours  

In certain circumstances, such as illness, medical appointments, etc. it may be necessary to collect children from school during school hours. Parents, carers or an authorised person (as nominated in our school data base) are required to complete a Student Leave Pass prior to picking up child/ren from their classroom/s. This will ensure that only authorised adults are collecting children from school. Parents will retain a hard copy and the yellow copy of this slip is then handed to your child’s teacher when collecting your child. Please note: teachers are not permitted to release students unless this procedure has been followed. This is a necessary legal requirement for reasons of safety and duty of care.

It is important that any changes to emergency contacts are communicated to our administration office. Your continued cooperation and consideration in this area will help us ensure your child’s welfare will receive the highest priority, especially if an emergency arises.
