Our School Day

The school day is structured to encourage learning and growth, while having the breadth of experiences within it to develop the whole child in all areas of life. Depending on your child’s age the structure of the day will be tailored to meet these needs more readily.

In general the school day starts for all with morning meetings and advisories, during which important messages, instructions and notices are shared. 

Break times are for recess, snacks, lunch and, of course, fun. However, they also provide opportunities, for students to participate in a number of activities or perhaps to get some extra help from a teacher. By varying break times during the day we optimise access to dedicated learning spaces as well as play and relaxation areas.

Our athletic activities program is delivered before, during and after school, and continues at the weekend, making the school a busy and active place to be.
