Students who attend school regularly and are on time are assured good quality learning experiences. Research shows that students who miss 10% (or one day a fortnight) or more of their school education may increase their potential of being at educational risk. It is for this reason that:
School Hours: 8:00am – 3:00pm Office: 8:00am – 3:00pm
Parents are reminded that children coming to college before 8:10am cannot be supervised by college staff.
Students who arrive after college has begun at 8:20 am are required to come to the office to receive a late pass. Parents of students who are regularly late will be contacted to discuss the situation.
Students who have not been collected in the first 10 minutes at the end of the college day will be redirected or escorted to the college administration to await arrival of carers. If parents are going to be late to collect students they are asked to telephone 9562 9850 to advise the college administration. If carers do not arrive in a timely way, emergency contacts are advised.
As a general rule, unless accompanied by a teacher, children must NOT leave the college grounds without permission from parents or guardian.
Children must be left in the care of a staff member and under no circumstances are they to be left to enter Kindergarten or Pre-primary classroom alone.
Children will not be released at pick up time until an authorised adults comes to the classroom door. Please notify College Administration on 9562 9850 if someone other than yourself is to pick up your child. If that other adult is unknown to staff we may ask for identification, e.g. drivers license.
Please note: Older siblings are not permitted to collect children from the Kindergarten or Pre-primary.
On the day following an absence from college, Department of Education regulations require a written explanation from the child’s parent/guardian. These notes are retained and must coincide with absences marked on the class roll. The teacher will follow up all unexplained absences. Any continual unexplained absences will be referred to the School Administration.
