Playground Supervision and Play times
All staff members on playground duty wear a fluoro yellow vest for easy identification by all children. Children are encouraged to seek help from the teacher on duty at any time.
The playgrounds are supervised before school from 8.30am. Students are allowed to play on the equipment once there is a teacher on duty.
For safety reasons students do not have access via the rear car park and car park door.
Students are asked not to enter or leave the school via the front office unless during school hours when a parent is waiting.
Children come around the outside of the school and leave their bags in class lines.
Junior children arriving by bike or scooter are asked to put them in the bike compound then walk through the canteen door through the school to the junior playground.
All students eat their food on the hard surfaced playground where the rubbish and recycling bins are. They may then play on the equipment and grassed areas. Senior grass area is restricted to the upper school grass play area at recess.
Lunch eating time is supervised by the class teachers. Classes may choose to eat in courtyard or classroom. At the play bell, students move outside. The oval is supervised for senior play at lunch time (unless booked for use by other community or school groups).
Lunch Club is a supported skills program where students can choose to go, or teachers can recommend students go for supported, structured play and sharing. Students attending Lunch Club generally take a friend or two from their class.
Playgrounds are not supervised after 3pm.
Students leave the school building via the closest door to their classroom. They are asked not to leave via the front doors.
Students who are being collected at the afternoon pick up area are asked to make their way quickly to the front driveway. Junior students will be met by a member of staff in the junior playground and escorted.
From 3:15pm any students remaining will be brought to the front office area and parents will be rung.
During wet weather, students are supervised in their classrooms by teaching staff. Students are permitted to enter the school by the front doors on rainy days.
