ONSITE LEARNING

  • Gates will open at 8.30, students enter classrooms at 8.45, class begins at 9.00
  • School finishes at 3.15 for all students
  • Children in Grade 3 – 6 are asked to bring their chromebooks to school on the days they attend and can take them home again for remote learning, during this transition period.
  • If more than one sibling is attending school on the one day will enter and exit via the gate of the eldest sibling.

Parents are asked not to congregate around gates if possible, remember social distancing still applies and masks should be worn. Parents are still being asked not to enter the school site without an appointment. All inquiries should be directed to the school office via Gate 1.

Please note there will be a slight adjustment to the remote learning timetable to cater for parents who are dropping children at school then returning home to prepare children for remote learning. 

Morning Meets will begin at 9.10 instead of 9.00.

CARE & SUPERVISION PROGRAM
With Foundation (Mon – Wed) and Grade 1 & 2 (Thurs – Fri) returning to school the Care & Supervision program is located back in the Sport Centre. Entry and exit will be via Gate 5 on Stawell St (opposite the foyer).
Children will still be admitted to the program according to the current guidelines; children of families who are authorised (permitted) workers and those children deemed vulnerable by the school. Siblings will not be admitted to the program on the days a younger sibling is attending school unless they meet the criteria.
Children must be registered via the eForm on the Skoolbag app.
