School Times

The following siren times operate:

8:50am Day commences
11.00 - 11.20am Morning Recess
12.20 - 1.00pm Lunch
3.10pm Dismissal (except on Tuesday when the siren will sound at 2.30pm)

Before School (to Ensure Effective Supervision)

Your child should be in the school grounds by 8.50am. They SHOULD NOT, however, be at school before 8.30am unless in extreme circumstances. Children who come to school before 8.30am are required to sit quietly in the courtyards areas of senior and middle communities. (At times a music, a sporting team or drama group, may be required at school earlier for practice.) Students are not permitted to enter classrooms unless a teacher is present.
