 You will be phoned if a stranger to the child attempts to pick them up from school.

Children are of prime importance. We have a registered nurse on the campus. If your child has a minor medical issue you will receive a report.  Please avoid sending a sick child to school.

We use benevolent discipline whereby your child is rewarded for positive behaviour.
