  • All students start the school year on Wednesday 31 January and end the school year on Thursday 13 December.
  • There are seven school development days decided by the school where students do not attend:
    • Two of these days are before the school year starts for students and one day is after the school year ends for students.
    • Each school schedules another four days throughout the year in consultation with its school council/board and school community.

  • Term 1- Monday 29 January and Tuesday 30 January

Students are not required to attend on these development days. There may be some minor changes to these but you will be notified if that is the case.

Sick Children, Asthma and First Aid Policy

While we do not like children to miss school, we ask that if your child is unwell, they stay at home. We have no facilities to take care of unwell students and it is very distressing for the children to be away from the care of home at such times. Parents or emergency contacts will be phoned when children are ill at school.

The school has a basic first aid kit located in the staff room. If the condition is serious, contact will be made with the parents via the Enrolment card. Minor cuts and scratches can be treated by the teachers concerned.

Records are kept of accidents and treatment administered. Contact is made with the Nursing Post when necessary.
