School Times

School starts at 8.55am promptly and finishes at 3.00 pm.  A hand bell is rung at 8.50 a.m. to get children to move into their classrooms ready for the 8.55 a.m. bell.  Children should be at school prior to the starting time so that they are organised to begin lessons as soon as the bell rings.  No child should be in the school grounds before 8.00 a.m. unless permission has been obtained from the principal.  Children arriving before 8.30am are required to sit outside Kea Room until 8.30am.  Children will assemble in front of the school at 3.00 p.m. for parents to collect.  Please contact the school if you are going to be late in picking up your child so that supervision can be arranged.
