When the telephone answering service is on, choose from  the following options:

Press 1 to leave an absentee message or general message

Press 0 to speak to office staff

At times, we use students to answer the telephone.  Please get them to repeat the message back to  you to confirm that they have taken it down correctly.  This is important when you are leaving  messages concerning collection arrangements for children.


Road Patrols commence at 8.30am.  Parents are responsible for crossing their  children until this time.

Once children have arrived at school for the day, they  must not leave the school grounds without permission of the duty or their  classroom teacher.  Written permission  addressed to their classroom teacher, is required from the parent/caregiver to  allow their child to go home for lunch.

On the first day of school, please report to the school office and you will be escorted to your child's classroom. Arrival at approximately 8.45am is ideal so the child has time to greet the teacher, meet some children and get items from their schoolbag before the bell rings at 9am. Parents are welcome to stay for a short time if they wish.
