The PE and swim schedules remain the same as last term, available in the note pinned to the top of each Seesaw account.

We know how important it is to maintain good levels of attendance and the links to positive outcomes. Therefore, we aim for all students to reach at least 95% attendance each term. ✅
Please also remember that our school day starts immediately with important lessons such as Phonics and Maths. Therefore, punctuality is vital to ensure no lost learning time. The gates open each morning for cars at 6:50am and lessons begin at 7:25am. ⏰
Please also be reminded that at the end of each school day, students are not allowed to be unsupervised anywhere on campus. Students not in an ECA or Ugama should head to the front gate area for prompt pick-up at 1:45pm (Yr3 and above) or be met from their external classroom doors (Year 2 and below). Students who have an ECA or Ugama should go to the front gate for pick-up immediately after the ECA or after Ugama ends. Thank you for your continued support in this area. The safety and wellbeing of all is our absolute priority. If for any reason you will be late in collecting your child, please inform the Primary Office before the end of the school day.
We have published a lot of information to the Primary Newsfeed, covering many aspects of school life. For a quick overview of what is available, please use the link below.
If you have any questions at all about any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to message within Seesaw.
