Playground 8:30am to 8:55am, 10:35am to 10:55am, 12:55pm to 1:35pm.

Carpark & Bus area 2:50pm to 3:10pm

Students are not to arrive before 8:30am. This is for the students’ protection and safety as there are no teachers on duty prior to 8:30am. No student will leave the school grounds during the day unless the student is signed out by their parent/carer at the school office.

Students are encouraged to go home promptly at 2:55pm. Students are not detained or kept in after hours so you should know the time your child would normally be expected to reach home.

Punctuality is required as students arriving late in the morning miss the important introduction for their daily work program.
