Banking for Students
In mid 2021, the Commonwealth "Dollarmites" School Banking program will no longer be offered in ACT Public Schools. The Chapman Primary School P&C's school banking coordinator will advise parents further as the program comes to a close.
The ideal time to arrive for school is between 8.40am and 8.50am, as our school day begins at 8:50am. Students must move to their class meeting space. Students must not play on the playground equipment before or after school. Students must dismount and walk with bicycles, scooters and skateboards from school gates to bike racks and storage areas.
An Executive Teacher is on call in the playground each day. In the event of wet weather before school, all students must remain undercover.
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).
