Pupil Free Days 2019

 

The Department of Education and Training (DET) allows all government schools to hold four curriculum days per year. Curriculum days are pupil free days which allow the staff to work together on planning and professional development activities. School Council has approved the following dates for 2019 as curriculum days:

 

  • Tuesday 29th January 2019 - first day of Term 1
  • Friday 8th March 2019 - Friday before Labour Day
  • Friday 26th April 2019 - day after ANZAC day
  • Monday 15th July 2019 - first day of Term 3

 

This means that the first day for students to return to school in 2019 is Wednesday 30th January.    Please put these dates into your diary.

School Arrival and Departure Times

Please ensure your child arrives at school after 8.30am and before 8.50am each day when the yard is supervised by our staff.  Please note that students are not to arrive at school prior to 8.30am. For the safety of all children the only gate open in the morning will be the front gate prior to 8:30am.  If your child arrives early they must report to the office.

 

The yard is also supervised after school until 3.30pm so please ensure your child is collected or alternative arrangements for their supervision made after this time.  The safety of your child is our concern.  At the end of the day we encourage all students to exit the school promptly as the supervising staff need to lock gates and account for any students who have not been collected.  Any student still remaining in the school at 3:30pm will be taken to the office by the supervising staff member.  After school is not a time for students to play and we ask that they vacate the yard promptly after the 3.10pm bell.  The play equipment is not available to students after school.

 

We thank you for your support in ensuring the safety of your children.

 

Camp Australia runs a before and after school care facility at our school which you are able to take advantage of for the supervision of your child prior to 8.30am and after 3.10pm. Camp Australia operates from the Learning Gallery. More information about the Camp Australia Before and After School Care facility can be found here.
