If my child is sick or is unable to attend school?
Please notify the office by ringing, leaving a message on the school answer phone or emailing or using the school App. For safety reasons we follow up on children who are not present at school for the early morning marking of attendance.
How should I arrange for my child to be picked up from school I cannot be there?
School finishes at 3pm. In the first year, classroom teachers release the children individually or they wait by their classroom door. Teachers need to know everyday arrangements for your child and the person picking them up on a regular basis. The office needs to be told, or the classroom teacher if there has been a change. Any custody issues need to be discussed with the Principal, DP or AP.
How can I receive the school newsletters or notices?
Newsletters are emailed to you every Tuesday. You can arrange alternative options through the office.
Who is the best person to see if there is a problem concerning my child at school?
The first person to see is the classroom teacher. If however, you need further assistance after this meeting, then you can next contact the Senior Teacher of the Year 1 team, then the Assistant Principal, Deputy Principal or Principal. We are all here to help.
