Arrival at School 

Students should not arrive at school before 8:30am. If students must arrive prior to 8:30am we recommend our Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) facility 0427 370 354 as students can be fully supervised until the 8:50am bell rings.

Some classrooms open at 8:30am to allow students to prepare for the day, work with the class teacher or play quiet games with their classmates prior to the school day beginning.

Departure from School

School is dismissed at 3:00pm. Once dismissed, students are to proceed home. Children who travel on school transport services wait in the bus line in the Senior Undercover Area (under supervision) until moving to the bus shelter. 

Parents who collect students each afternoon in private vehicles are asked to ensure that the students are not left to wait for long periods after dismissal time.

Parents are also asked to observe safety regulations with regard to parking vehicles and to ensure the services of the Crossing Supervisor and pedestrian crossing are used. Parents are to collect their children from the school gate and escort them to the car, especially children in Years 1 to 3. Prep students are to be collected from their classrooms.

Compulsory Attendance

Regular attendance is necessary for satisfactory progress to be made. Therefore, parents must assume the responsibility for the regular attendance of their children. Students must arrive at their classroom before the first bell at 8:45am.

Absence

Parents are required to provide a note of explanation regarding a child's absence from school. After the third day of absence without explanation, an Absentee Form may be forwarded to parents requesting the reason for the pupil's absence.

A written explanation should be sent with the child on his/her return to school after absence, including the reason for absence. After an absence of three days, and if the absence is likely to be longer, send a note to the teacher, or phone the school office on

07 5477 2777 or phone the Student Absentee Line 07 5477 2760.

Bicycles

Cycling is a popular way for students to travel to school.

There is a bike rack located behind the Tuckshop.. Bicycles must be housed in this area during school hours. Students are responsible for the safety of their bikes. We recommend all students use a chain or other locking device to ensure the security of their bike. Helmets can be taken up to the port racks.

For the safety of everyone, students must walk their bike in all areas of the school grounds.
