Staff on Duty

A teacher is on duty from 8:30 am in the morning. In the afternoon two teachers are on duty until 3:30 pm – with one teacher at the front gate and one teacher at the back gate. At 3:30 pm, all students remaining (including those who are still at the back gate) will gather at the front steps, where they will be supervised until 3:45 pm. If these times do not suit, Outside School Hours Care is available every afternoon. Students that are not collected by 3:45 pm will be placed into the After School Care Program, and a fee will apply.


We ask for your co-operation to explain to your child that:

  • They should report to teachers if you have not arrived to collect them on time
  • They must never leave the school grounds during recess
  • They must use the school crossing where applicable, and we also insist adults use the crossing at Spring Gully Road at all times.

Late Arrivals

Punctuality is essential – please assist your child by having them at school on time. If your child does arrive late, we ask that you come via the office and sign in late. This is necessary as class rolls are marked at 8:45 am, and if your child is not in class at this time, they will be marked as absent. By signing in, we are able to adjust our records so that your child is then marked as late rather than absent.


Leaving Early

If for some reason your child needs to leave the school prior to the end of the school day, we ask that you come via the office and complete the sign-out note. These requirements are necessary to comply with Department regulations, minimise legal liabilities, and to provide an adequate duty of care.
