Our staff are excited and have been working hard to ensure we are ready for the first day. We look forward to greeting the students on Sept 6th.
Please remember that our parking lot closes at 8:15 a.m. and 2:40 p.m. to ensure the safety of our students. Supervision does not begin on the playground until 8:20 a.m. Parents are not permitted on our schoolyard and playground during the school day; this includes entry and dismissal times.
We will have all of our staff available to assist and direct students to their appropriate location on the first day of school.
First Day Procedures
Tuesday September 6th is the first day of school for our students in grades 1 to 8 and the Year 2 Kindergarten students. Our Year 1, Kindergarten students will begin with a staggered entry on September 8th. Your child's teacher will be in touch with further information.
Kindergarten: Enter through the Kindergarten pathway on the west side of the yard. On arrival. The Kindergarten classroom team will greet the children.
Grade One: May enter the fenced play area through the Kindergarten pathway on the west side of the yard or they may enter the fenced off playground from the tarmac area of the yard. The Grade one teachers will meet the children and at the bell bring them into the classroom.
Grade Two to Three: Will meet on the tarmac area to the east side of the building. The classroom teachers and other designated staff will meet the students and bring them into the classroom at the bell.
Grades Four to Eight: Will meet behind the portables at the back of the building. The classroom teachers will meet the students and bring them into their classroom at the bell.
For each grade there will be clear signs posted, so students know where they need to go.

A table will be located on the east side of the yard with class lists so you can double check if you are unsure.
