We expect students to attend school for a full day. If your child needs to be picked up early you must attend the office, and sign your child out.

Attendance Regular attendance is important. Regular attendance helps school work, social adjustment and development of dependability.

Punctuality is important. The school day starts at 8.55am. Please ensure that your child arrives on time. We recommend students arrive between 8.30am and 8.45am as the yard is supervised from 8.30am and this allows them time to place their bag, visit the amenities and catch up with friends before the bell rings for line-up.

Parents are asked to qualify any child's absence (for half or full day) with a written explanation. Please do not ring the school to inform of absences unless your child has been away for 3 days without an explanation and needs to be away for longer. If your child has an illness that warrants exclusion from school (i.e. chickenpox, Diphtheria, Hand Foot & Mouth, School Sores, etc) please alert the office so that any necessary steps can be carried out.

 

Reports and Parent/Teacher Interviews

School Reports and Interviews Students' reports are issued twice yearly, in June and December.

Parent-teacher interviews are held after the issue of the June Report. Discussion about individual student progress is done at this time. Parent information sessions are held during first term. This enables any concerns or requests for special consideration to be raised early enough for action to be taken. If you wish to discuss your child's progress at any stage, a phone call to arrange a meeting at a mutually acceptable time with the teacher would be appreciated.

 

School Captains and Vice Captains

At the end of each year the students in Grade 5 are able to put themselves forward to be elected for School Captain or Vice Captian. This includes presenting a candiate speech to the entire school body. The students then vote on who they would like to represent them for the following year. Our 2018 Captains are -
