Banking

The school runs a banking service each week. The school receives $5 commission from the Commonwealth Bank for each new account and also 5% of the value of each deposit. Should you wish to open a Youthsaver account for your child, please visit your local Commonwealth Bank branch with a copy of your child's birth certificate.

The Commonwealth Bank provides a school banking service. Banking books should be handed to the parent representatives on Tuesday mornings between 8:30am and 8:50am in the central blue carpet area of the school.

Banking is completed electronically and the school receives a commission for every transaction made. Problems or enquiries should be directed to the parent representatives or the Commonwealth Bank.


Before School

The ideal arrival time is between 8.40am and 8.50am, as school begins at 8:50am. Students should move to their class meeting space. Students should not play on the playground equipment before or after school. Once at school grounds students must walk with bicycles, scooters and skateboards.

The Principal and/or Executive Teacher are rostered to be on call in the playground.  In the event of wet weather before school all students should remain undercover.


Behaviour Management

The school respects the basic values of the home and promotes socially acceptable behaviour based on the fundamental principles of:

  • the right to learn/teach without disruption;
  • care and consideration for each other;
  • care of the environment and property;
  • the right to feel happy and safe at all times.

The school has a Behaviour Management Policy, Building Positive Relationships, which states that children are responsible for their own behaviour. With teacher assistance, children have drawn up a comprehensive list of acceptable behaviours in classrooms and the school playground. The policy outlines various steps through which a child progresses, depending on their choice of behaviour.

Communication with parents is always made when the child's behaviour indicates that this is necessary. Parents are requested to inform the teacher or principal when a child's school work or behaviour might be affected in some way by circumstances not known to the school (eg serious illness in family or separation).


Bicycles

If children ride bicycles to school they should wear helmets at all times. Bicycles should be locked in the bicycle areas which are out of bounds during the day. The school cannot accept responsibility for or damage to bicycles. For the safety of all children bicycles are not to be ridden in the school playground at any time.
