Please adhere to the above timetable to enable this transition to work effectively.
Please Note: School will finish at 3.30pm. To collect your child at the end of the day, please wait outside your child’s classroom. The teacher will permit students to leave once their parent/guardian has been sighted. Every other school day starts at 9am. Students will have the first five Wednesdays off, the last one being Wednesday the 4th of March.
As of the week starting the 9th of March, Preps will be full time.
