TIMING AND TERM DATES
The School Day
Pre-School and primary start at 8:15 a.m and Secondary school starts at 8:25 a.m Monday-Friday. We ask children to arrive between 8:05 for pre-school and 8:10 for primary school, and between 8:00 and 8:20 for secondary school. It is very important that children are in their classrooms, ready to start work, by 8:15/8:25. Children should not be in school before the times above as this makes supervision difficult for staff needing to prepare classrooms. There is a mid-morning snack break and a lunch break of 30 minutes.
Pre-School finishes at 2:00 p.m (14:00) and primary 2:15 p.m. (14:15) Monday to Friday. Secondary have varied finish times depending on their classes and year. But it is between 2.30 p.m. (14:30) and 3.30 p.m. (15:30).
We ask you to pick up your children 15 minutes after their class finishes.
Many children bring a light snack for break time. We recognize healthy eating contributes to learning so we ask you to provide fruit or savoury snacks. Please do not send sweets and chocolate.
