Recess time is from 10.45 – 11.05 am

Lunch time is from 12.50 – 1.45 pm which includes 10 minutes eating time from 12.50 – 1.00 pm.

The school day finishes at 3.25 pm.

Collection of Children During School Hours

Teachers are responsible for the children under their care during the school day and must know where they are at all times.

If parents need to collect children during school hours to take them to an appointment, they must report to the front office and sign the collection book. If a child is to be collected by someone other than a parent, the person responsible must contact the front office to inform them of arrangements.

It is also courteous to inform the child’s classroom teacher that they will be absent from class, so that they have the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to teaching programs.
