IMPORTANT Notice regarding children arriving early at school, click below;

Mon May 31 08:40pm

We are having increasing numbers of children at school before 8:30am and some children arriving between 8:05am and 8:10am.

School opens at 8:30am: this is when the teachers are in class and can supervise – before this time it is not safe or practical for a school to have large numbers of students

Before School Care operates so that working parents have somewhere to take their children up until 8:30am – school is not the place for this as there is NO supervision.

Parents will be notified via email and txt if their children are here before 8:20am so that they can make other arrangements. 

This is important for the health and safety of your children and our learners.
