The School Day

The school gates open at 8:50am with the registers being taken at 9am. The school day finishes at 3:30pm.  The total amount of time a child is in school in a typical week is 32.5 hours.



Children enter and leave school through their allocated classroom or cloakroom door. In Year 6, children have the opportunity, following written permission from parents/ carers, to walk home from school by themselves. 


If parents require children to leave before the end of the school day, for example, due to a medical appointment, the school office must be informed. In the interests of safety, a responsible adult should always collect the child and report to the school office to sign the child out.


Similarly, children who arrive after the start of the school day should report to the office to sign in.
