Arrival at School
School lessons commence at 8.50am. Students are expected to be at school by 8:30am. Staff are always at school preparing for the day’s lessons before school, but the Department of Education does not provide the resources for children to be fully supervised before school. It would be appreciated it those parents bringing their children to school could arrive after 8:30am.

School Dismissal
School work finishes at 3:00pm but parents will realize that tidying up, packing books and the usual end of the day routine will require a little extra time.
Parents who arrive in vehicles to collect students are asked to observe road safety rules with regards to parking of vehicles. As an important safety issue, all children are to wait for parents after school at the front entrance on Yandina Creek Road. Our school has been provided with 50 additional car parking spaces.  If your youngest child is in Year 3-7 please park away from  the front gate down beyond the new buildings on Yandina Creek Road and collect your children from outside the performance hall.  This eases congestion.  It is not safe for your child to wait for you at the Fairhill Rd entrance, as there are no staff supervising that exit.  Parents should insist that their children obey all safety rules. Children should be collected as near to dismissal time as possible. If you are collecting your child, do not leave him/her at the front of the school after 3:30pm at the very latest. They must be booked into After School Care.
 
Before and After School Care
Care is available to all school children each weekday during the school term.
Children can attend on a regular basis if parents work, or come along on a casual basis on any day when parents are unable to be home. For more information please ask at the office.  The phone numbers for ASC are 5472 9803; mobile Kathy Cockroft is 0418 858 967. The hours of operation are 7am—8:50am and 3:00 until 6:00pm. Children are welcome to attend for any part of that time, but bookings must be made.
