From 25 April 2022 the following will be in place: children may arrive at school from 07:00 and proceed to the back playground.  The bell will go at 07:30 for Morning Line Up and the start of the school day.  Masks will continue to be worn indoor and other sanitizing and cleaning protocols will remain in place.

All extramural will start at 14:00 - 15:00.  The children taking part in extramurals will be supervised on the back playground from 13:45 - 14:00, giving them a chance to eat.  There is no supervision after 14:00 for any child not participating in extramurals, nor after 15:00 for children participating in extramurals.  Please be prompt when collecting your child.

School Rules

Basic rules:

1. Follow instructions.

2. Keep hands, feet, objects and unkind words to yourself.

3. Look after all property.

4. Behave appropriately.

5. Take pride in yourself and your school.


Appropriate behaviour:

You will be rewarded with praise, stars, positive notes, stickers and the opportunity to wear the merit badge for 1 week or to wear civvies if you show appropriate behaviour.

Inappropriate behaviour:

Foundation phase : Grade 0 - 3

Whilst the emphasis is on acknowledging the appropriate behaviour, within each grade and class within the foundation phase, there are consequences for inappropriate behaviour. These will be discussed with the parents at the first term parent information sessions.

Intersen phase. Gr. 4-7

If you choose to break a rule, the following steps will be taken:

  • First time a rule is broken: Reminder (first verbal then on a tracking sheet).

  • Second time: time out – 5 minutes away from the group.

  • Third time: time out – 10 minutes away from the group to complete a behaviour journal.

  • Fourth time: You will report to the Principal and depending on the transgression, be put on ‘Daily Report’ for a week. This is a daily system, you start new each day – (if you abuse the system, you will have to skip a few steps).

Severe disruption (e.g. fighting, open defiance, vulgar language). Sent to the Principal. Formal disciplinary action will be initiated if necessary.
