Attendance Certificates

We informed you earlier in the year that students who attend school for 100% of the time will be receiving special certificates at the end of each term. Additionally, we will also be presenting certificates to students, who achieve 97-99% attendance, as this is considered an excellent level of attendance also. These certificates will be presented at the final Assembly of the term.

Lateness to School

A reminder that our first school bell rings at 8.55 am. It is an expectation that students are here well before this first bell, allowing enough time to get prepared for the start of the school day. The first 10 minutes of the day, is an important time in each classroom where key organisational information is shared. This information helps set students up for success with their learning for the day. Thank you for your continued efforts in regard to this matter.

Enjoy a fantastic Easter break with family and friends.........John Byers
