Collecting your Student

Please inform Student Services if you need to collect your child/ren. Parents are requested not to call students directly as this often disrupts classes and learning. Staff at Student Services will contact the appropriate classroom and arrange for your child to ‘check out’.

If students are late they must arrive via Student Services to ‘check in’.

Students with a parent/guardian approved lunch pass must also check in and out via Student Services.

Student ID Cards

All students are issued with a free ID card if they are present on school photo day and have their photo taken. The school ID card is a valid form of identification and may be used for travel, to open bank accounts and obtain copies of Birth Certificates etc. Students are encouraged to keep this secure. If you lose or misplace the ID card, a new one can be issued through Student Services. The cost is $6.00 and replacement may take up to one week.

Staff at Student Services are available for any student related enquiries and if we can’t help we will point you in the right direction.
