General Information

Watching day is on the first and last day of the term only.
(week 1 and week 8)

Please try to keep noise and distractions to a minimum during these watching days for teachers to operate the class successfully.

For the 6 classes in between these two days parents must wait outside the hall at all times. Please be aware that younger siblings running in and out of the hall is very distracting and not permitted.

Students who are unable to stay in class for the duration of the class time will not be able to participate in the term. This is distracting for the class and also a safety requirement.

If at any time a student is not suited to a particular class, enrolment will be at the discretion of the class teacher and school Director.

Children and Parents must wait outside until the previous class is finished and exit their class as quickly and quietly as possible.

Children must be picked up promptly at the end of their class as they cannot be properly supervised after this time.

Children are to wait in the hall until their parents arrive to pick them up.
