Normal school hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm for all students.
Punctuality is vital. Late comers must go directly to the office, give a reason for lateness and receive a late note before going to class. This information is then recorded in the class roll. Department officers from the Home School Liaison Program regularly check rolls and where attendance is unsatisfactory, work with schools, staff, families and students to improve a student’s attendance record.
Any parent/caregiver wishing to take a student from school during normal hours must notify the school, and report directly to the school office to obtain a release note and meet the student being collected. Parents/caregivers must not go to classrooms when collecting students. This procedure is to protect students from wrongful removal and should be respected and observed by all parents/caregivers.
Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to leave the school by themselves, or wait for a parent/caregiver outside the school grounds. Students must be collected from the school office by an adult and the appropriate procedures followed.
