School Hours

School Hours

From: 7:30 to 12:30. Children can be dropped off from 7:30am, but our morning programme only starts at 8:15am and we don't want children to arrive later than this as they miss valuable learning experiences and disrupt the class. All children, other than those staying for aftercare, should have left the school by 13:00pm. Special permission must be obtained from the Principal should a child need to be collected later. Late collection of children interrupts staff meetings and inconveniences the teachers who need time to prepare for the following day.
