Daily Routine

Absence from School

In the case of students being absent, make a phone call to the Absentee Line 3841 1409 and leave a message stating the student’s name, class and reason for absence.  Please try to ensure that medical and dental appointments be made, if possible, outside school hours.  Any absences of more than 10 days need to be advised in advance to the school office so the appropriate government paperwork can be completed.

Before School

The school provides a Before School Care service from 6:30am until the start of school.  Parents not using this service are discouraged from dropping off or allowing students to be at school before 8:00am.

Supervision will be provided for students in the Hall from 8:05am.  Under the direction of the teacher, students are to walk, in an orderly manner to their classrooms.

Students arriving after 8.40am are to report to the school office to obtain a late slip and be signed in by a parent.



Students will be dismissed at 3.00pm.

  • Students going to after school care will report directly to the centre.
  • Students going home with parents will meet their parents at the grass area between the church and the library. We ask parents not to go to classrooms as it leads to congestion on the path to the car park.
  • Students who are to be escorted across the road meet the duty teacher at the ‘flagpole end’ of the assembly area.
  • Students being picked up in cars report to the car park end of the grass area between the church and the library where the duty teacher will be waiting.
  • Students who ride their bikes go directly to their bikes.

Except in the case of supervised school activities, all students should have left the school grounds each afternoon by no later than 3.30pm

Early departures must be arranged through the school office i.e. those collecting students must proceed to the office where the office staff will contact the class teacher.   Students must be signed out at the office before leaving the school grounds.
