Hours and Attendance

School Hours

The school day is from 9:00am- 3:00pm. We encourage children to be at school at 8:55am ready to start at 9:00am.

Lunchtime is from 12:30pm-1:30pm

School buildings are open at 8:30am. Children will not be supervised before this time.


Please phone the school (488-2314) or (021 244 4833) before 9:00am if your child is going to be absent. An answer phone is in operation when the office is unattended. The school secretary will ring the home number, to follow up any unexplained absence.

Please keep your child at home if he or she is unwell.

As the medical room is equipped to provide only temporary care, should a child’s health be of concern, parent/caregivers will be contacted to pick up their child from school.. Please make sure we have at least one emergency number to ring in case you cannot be contacted.

Our after school care programme is run by M.A.S.H (My After School Headquarters).
