First day procedures
The first day of school is always an
exciting and very special day and the day is planned to run as smoothly as
possible. Children will have been shown their classrooms and where possible
have met their teachers at the end of the previous year. If enrolment forms
have already been completed there is no need for parents and students to report
to the office. Teachers will be in attendance in the room to receive and welcome
your child. Additionally, there will be staff on duty to assist you with any
Regular school attendance is vital to providing your
child with their best opportunity to learn. Punctual arrival at school ensures
children are calm, organised and ready to commence their day following
classroom and school routines. Clear routines at home, including bed time and
morning routines assist families to manage these busy times of the day and
reduces any anxiety that may arise about coming to school. EVERY DAY COUNTS.
All student absences must be explained in accordance with
the Department of Education guidelines. For your convenience student absence
messages can be left on the school answering machine outside of school office
hours 8.00am – 3.00pm. Students who are absent for longer than three days are
to obtain a medical certificate which is to be brought into the office upon the
child’s return to school. In extreme circumstances, if a child is to be absent
from school for longer than 10 days authorisation of this absence is to be
sought from the school Principal.
