Classes commence each morning at 8.45am and conclude at 3.25pm on Mondays to Fridays. The College grounds are open to students from 8.30am each morning and remain open to students until 3.30pm (or when the last bus leaves) each afternoon. At all times outside the period from 8.30am to 3.30pm on Mondays to Fridays, the College grounds and buildings are out of bounds to all students.
The College office hours are normally 8.30am to 4.30pm during school term.
SUPERVISION OF STUDENTS
Normal supervision of students by the College will be undertaken between 8.30am and 3.30pm on Mondays to Fridays. No supervision will be provided other than during those hours and no responsibility will be taken by the College for any consequences of the activities of students outside those hours.
In the interest of the students’ safety, parents need to ensure that students do not attend or remain in the precincts of the College outside the hours of 8.30am to 3.30pm on Mondays to Fridays.
The College will not be responsible for supervising or caring for students outside the College premises unless the students are engaged in a College-sponsored activity, such as an excursion or a sporting event. The College will not be responsible for supervising or caring for students on their journey to and from the College. In particular, the College will not be responsible for supervising students on buses, either on their way to the College or on their way home from the College. Each student’s journey to and from the College shall be the responsibility of each student’s parent or guardian.
Special arrangements will be made in relation to authorised College activities which require the attendance of students at the College outside the College hours listed above.
ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL
The importance of regular attendance at school cannot be emphasised too strongly. When a student has to miss school, even for one day, a note of explanation is required and this must be supplied within seven days. A note is also required if a student is to be arriving late or leaving early.
If a student is absent for more than two (2) days, you are asked to contact the College. In the event of a student being away from classes, it is their responsibility to find out about any work they may have missed.
LEAVING THE COLLEGE PREMISES DURING THE DAY
It should be rare for students to have to leave the College during the day, as it interrupts their classes. If students need to leave, please write a note which the student gives to the Homeroom teacher during morning Homeroom time. The Office Staff prepare a permission slip which the student collects from the office. The student must leave the College and return to the College VIA THE FRONT OFFICE to let Front Office staff know.
