Mobile Phones

Mobile phones are not allowed to be used during school hours. Parents/Carers who allow their child to bring a mobile phone to school must understand the school takes no responsibility for any loss or damage to the phone. Students are asked to place their mobile phones in a box in the school office before school commences. Please refer to the Mobile Phone Policy.

Toys and Personal Equipment

Children should not bring their toys to school as loss or damage usually causes distress for the owner. Neither should personal electronic equipment be brought to school.


Children must not leave money in bags, desks, drawers or pigeonholes.  If a child is too young to carry money they should hand it to their class teacher for safekeeping.

Valuable rings, watches and other such expensive items should NOT be brought to school. Staff cannot guarantee their safety.

Parent/Carer Involvement

Parents/Carers are welcomed into our school to assist in a voluntary capacity. Please liaise closely with the classroom teachers involved.


Homework falls into the following categories:

  1. practice or consolidation of work taught in class
  2. research work for individual or group subjects
  3. family/home based challenges

Most homework given in Pre-Primary to Year 6 may consist of oral or silent home reading, learning of spelling and basic number facts.  Class teachers form their class homework policy within these categories and communicate it to parents/carers.

Note: Homework will NOT be given as a matter of policy.  Rather it will be given according to the child’s needs.
