School commences at 8.50am and concludes at 3.30pm.  Morning recess is from 11.00am to 11.30am and lunch is between the hours of 1.30pm and 2.30pm. Children eat lunch in their Classrooms between 1.30pm and 1.40pm.  Please ensure that your child has a clearly labelled lunch box and drink container.  Drink containers must be unbreakable.  The lunch recess concludes at 2.30pm.

 

Teachers are on duty in the school grounds from 8.45am and it is appreciated if children do not arrive at school before this time.  It is advisable to have children at school no later than 8.50am to ensure they are adequately prepared for their day.  The bell rings at 8:50 which signifies all classrooms are open and the children (and parents) are able to enter the building. This allows the children 10 minutes in which to put their bag away, change their reader and organise themselves for a 9 o’clock start.

 

Prep. children finish School at 1.00pm until Friday 24th February.  After this date, they are dismissed with the rest of the School at 3.30pm.  Early dismissal in the first months of the year assists the children in the transition from Kindergarten hours to the longer School day.

 

On the last day of each school term a School Assembly is held at 2.00pm followed by dismissal at 2.30pm.  On the last day of the School Year children will be dismissed at 1.30pm following Assembly at 1.00pm.
