When a child is diagnosed as having an infectious disease children have to be excluded from school according to the guidelines set out in the Education Department Exclusions table.
A written explanation of a child’s absence should be forwarded to the school the day your child returns. If the absence is prolonged it would be appreciated that we are notified as soon as possible.
If any child is absent for two or more days without notification, the Principal, Assistant Principal or office staff will contact the parents. In this way the child’s whereabouts are known as a safety factor and compliance with the laws regarding attendance is assured. Long term or regular unexplained absences can be referred to the Department of Human Services.
A parent wishing to collect their child during school hours is required to sign the IN/OUT BOOK at the Office/Reception and to send a written note to the class teacher. Office staff will collect the child from class and bring them to the office to meet their parent / guardian.
Whenever a child moves to another school a transfer note is required. It is helpful if parents inform the school at least one week prior to leaving so that reports, transfer papers, books etc. can be organised without any last minute rush. Library books are to be returned prior to leaving.
Any money that needs to be sent to school for Book Club, Sport, Excursions, Camps etc. should be placed in an envelope (sealed tightly at the edges so that coins do not fall out) with child’s name, Home Group, room number and for what reason the money has been sent ie. Book Club/Camp/Sport etc.
EFTPOS operates from the Office/Reception and for large cost items a credit card authorisation form will be added to the payment slip.
Parents are able to drop off and collect children from the (former bus) bays in Wrench’s Lane. To do this enter from James Street and turn right to travel south. Please note that the old bus bays are the only legal parking spaces. People have been booked for parking in other areas of the lane.
All visitors to the site are required to report to the Office/ Reception and those moving out of the Administration area are required to sign in and will be issued with a visitor’s badge. This procedure assists in securing the site against unwanted visitors and provides us with a record of other people on-site in the event of an emergency.
