Arriving at School

Children are expected to arrive at school between 8:30am and 8:45am, giving them ample time to greet their teachers and friends, organise their materials for the day and even have a little time to play. All of this is great settling behaviour and allows the students to be ready for the business of the day.

Children arriving after 8:50am experience difficulties settling into the days’ learning as they miss the important “tuning in” that happens at the beginning of each school day.

Being at school on time helps children to learn and assists them in developing good habits which will benefit them throughout their schooling and throughout their lives.
