There is a voluntary school donation of $20 per child per term, or $50 per term per family of three or more. This is set by the Board of Trustees and is used to subsidise some school trips and other activities, and to subsidise the purchase of extra equipment and materials for school activities and events.
Donations are tax deductible, and can be paid in instalments, lump sum, or made by automatic payments through your bank.
ABSENCES FROM SCHOOL
To notify us if your child is going to be away from school you can:
· leave a message on the absence line - 569 5422
· text the school mobile - 022 173 3071
If for any reason your child is late, needs to leave school early, or is going to be away at a future date, please notify Robyn in the office.
Note: It is school policy to check any unexplained absences.
LEAVING SCHOOL GROUNDS
Children will be permitted to leave the school grounds during school hours ONLY when written requests are received from parents. Parents/students must fill in the Log Out book if a child leaves during the school day.
Where children are going home for lunch on a daily basis, a note at the beginning of each term is all that is required.
As a school, our focus is on ‘self-discipline’. We aim to help children to grow towards an awareness and acceptance of responsibility for their own actions.
School rules and the steps for dealing with breaches of these rules, are set out in our Behaviour Management Plan. Copies of this plan are available from the school office during normal school hours.

A list of stationery needed at each class level is sent home at the end of the school year, or when your child commences school. A limited amount of stationery is also available for purchase from the school office.
We discourage children from bringing valuable items (such as games, toys or jewellery) to school as there is always the risk of them being lost. Staff cannot accept responsibility for valuable property at school.
Any money coming into the school needs to be put into an envelope, clearly labelled with the child’s name, room number and what it is for. The envelope is then placed in the class money bucket, for checking by staff.
