Important reminder - for bus users

In order to avoid constant and unnecessary afternoon bus delays, please be reminded to let me know if your child will not be taking their regular bus home after school. This is most important if your child is in school during the day, but will leave early for any reason - a doctors appointment, a family engagement, or you may decide to take them home with you if you have been in school for an exhibition or event. You may also have organised for them to be collected by another adult for a play date, to wait in the playground for a sibling, or take them straight to an activity outside of school.

What ever the reason, if they will not be taking their regular bus home on that day, it is essential to let me know via email or phone before 2.30pm.

School bus - Term 2

For those students whose parents have opted to pay school bus fees by term, please note that bus fees for next term are due tomorrow.

Please email me if you have lost your form, or didn't receive it.
