Late arrival / early departure to school

In order to minimise disruption to class and maximise learning opportunities for our students, we would like to remind you of the school policy regarding late arrival to school. Students are expected to be at school at 8:30am. A locker bell rings at 8:35am and class begins punctually at 8:50am. If your child is late for any reason, please notify the school prior to the event by phone 8520 9050, email or by writing a note in the student's diary explaining the reason. 


If no explanation has been received they will receive a lunchtime detention.


If your student needs to leave school early for any reason, please write a note in their diary explaining the reason. Teachers will not allow any student to leave their class unless there is authorisation.

Students are always required to sign in/out at the General Office upon late arrival or early departure.


We appreciate your support in this. If you have any questions please call Sarah Logan on 8520 9050.
