To the students and families that ensure students are here on time we thank you. It is vital for all students to be at school every day and on time. Children need to be at school at about 8.45 to help them make the switch into school and feel comfortable as they go into the classroom and ready to start the day. By Wednesday this week we had had 35 students coming into school after 9am. These late arrivals are having a significant effect on students. In 2018 significant late arrivals will have an impact on attendance awards. We encourage all families to give their children the best start by being at school on time and every day they are well enough to attend.
