Weekly school events

- Assembly – 8.30am every Friday
Parents are encouraged to ensure that students arrive at school prior to 8:25am, so that they have the opportunity to organise themselves and be ready to start their school day promptly at 8:25am. Students who are consistently late miss out on gathering with their peer group. Their learning opportunities are disrupted, as are the opportunities of their classmates. Students who arrive after 8:30am are required to be signed in at the office to collect a late slip to take to class. Students who arrive late will be marked late on the morning roll.
After school supervision is provided at Reed Road and O’Brien Rd entrances. Children who are still waiting at Reed Rd at 3.10pm are directed to sit outside the school office until they are collected by parents or their representatives.
Leaving School Grounds
Parents coming to the school to collect students during the school day are required to call in to the office to sign their children out. Children will then be sent to the office to meet their parents.
When a pupil is absent from school, parents are required to contact the school via phone call or email explaining the absence. A note is also required if a child cannot participate in the school’s programme, eg sports, physical education, etc.
