A brief registration period precedes morning and afternoon school.

Staff will supervise the children from 8.30am. Please try to ensure that your child is in class for the start of the school session. If, however, your child is going to be late for school and will require a school lunch, please inform us before 9:15am. Sometimes children are involved in after-school activities. When this happens, the teacher responsible will contact you in advance for your written permission.
