Scripture lessons are given once a week on Tuesday afternoons by a visiting teacher. The majority of classes are multi-denominational using take home scripture leaflets. Catholic scripture is held separately. Exemption from scripture is available, but a written request is needed. Ethics classes are available based on tutor availability.

Look for lost property inside and outside classrooms, in hallways, in the lost property box and on the pegs on the outside wall of the double storey building. If unsuccessful, enquire at the Office.
Lost property is held until the end of each term and then displayed for children to collect. Unclaimed property goes to a charity organisation.
To safely manage your child’s medication needs, all medication needs to be labelled with a chemist prescription label and be in the original packaging. All children require an indemnity form available from the Office indicating dosage amount and time of administration. This form needs to be completed by a parent/carer otherwise we cannot administer any medication. This medication is stored in a locked cupboard at school.
Asthma education usually says to keep “puffer” with the child at all times.
It is important that:
We have a signed indemnity permission note to administer any medication, not a handwritten note.
Actual dosage to be used is written down on the form available in the Office.
