Head Lice

Where head lice is detected on a student, a parent will be called and asked to collect their child and treat his/her hair appropriately. The student may return to school after the first treatment, but subsequent treatments should be done one week later.
A note will be distributed to all students in the affected classes informing all parents of the outbreak of head lice.  It will also advise them to check their child’s hair and treat if necessary.

Homework

Homework is set in order to provide children with the opportunity to practise skills and enrich ideas developed at school. It also provides an opportunity for children and parents to interact in learning.  Appropriate homework is set by individual teachers to meet the needs of children in their classes.

School commences at 9:00am and concludes at 3pm.  Punctuality is important but it is unwise for children to be at school any earlier than 8.30am. The most appropriate arrival time is 8.45am.
