Parents information

Enrolment

Enrolment takes place from January 12th- Jan31st each year. Parents may collect an application form at the School Office if their children are of a suitable school-going age and fulfil the criteria for enrolment. Our school secretary distributes application forms and sets up appointments with parents and their children, to meet with the principal.
A cut -off date may be necessary where the number of children exceeds the number of spaces available.

Attendance

It is extremely important that your child attends school every day that he/she is well. However, if your son/daughter has been sick during the night, please do not send him/her to school next day. It is essential to send a note or telephone the school if your child is ill or absent from school for any period of time. Upon returning to school please check with the class teacher in case you have missed any important notes.

Accidents or Illness

In the case of an emergency it is essential that parents are contacted immediately. Up-to-date telephone numbers and addresses must be kept on file in the office at all times.

Early Collection of children

In the unlikely event that you have to collect your child early from school please collect him/her before or after the yard breaks.

Yard Break times:

  • 10.45am-10.55am
  • 12.30pm-1.00pm

Healthy Eating

Food& Drink Research indicates a strong link between diet and performance. A healthy diet promotes concentration, protects teeth, lessens hyperactivity and reduces health risks in later life. As part of the Social, Personal and Health Education (S.P.H.E.) programme we encourage the children to become more aware of the need for healthy food in their lunch boxes. Lunch is an important meal for school-going children. We ask you to encourage a healthy lunch right from the start.

Waste Disposal

Children bring their own packaging home. The empty cartons and other waste indicate to parents what food and drink their child has eaten and also teaches the principles of recycling.

Birthday Parties

If you are celebrating a birthday at home please do not ask your son/daughter to distribute invitations in the classroom. Children who are not invited to the party can feel very excluded. Also, birthday cakes are not allowed in school.

Please Note: Parents are very welcome to come to read any of our administrative / curricular policies which are available at the school office.
