Information for new families

Attendance

All students are expected to be at school by 8.30am, ready to commence the school day at 8.45am. Attendance is monitored closely and parents will be contacted if there are any concerns.

If students are genuinely ill, obviously the best place for them is to rest at home so they can make a quick recovery. Please ring 578 4401 to report an absence, email your teacher, or use the facility provided on our website.

Cyclists

Cyclists must wear helmets and have a lock to secure their bicycle. A cycle track that by-passes 15th Avenue and Turret Road makes this area safer for our students. The school has a secure compound where bikes are held during school hours.

Learning Conferences

All students are involved in student-led conferences twice a year. The conferences are a conversation between student, parent and the teacher, focused on recent learning and the setting of targets in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.

Newsletters

The School Newsletter produced fortnightly is accessed via the school website and parents are emailed the link. It is produced to inform you of the happenings in the school. In addition, the Sports  & Arts newsletters are issued fortnightly. Paper copies are available upon request from the office.
