Change of School times in 2020 with a 3:00 pm finish
In 2020 the school will be adjusting its hours of operation so the school day ends at 3:00 p.m. Our starting time will remain the same, at 8:50 a.m. but the day will finish 15 minutes earlier.
This change will bring us into alignment with other local schools and ensure that teachers are on duty for the correct times specified in their industrial award. For the past 10 years teachers at Ardtornish have been generously working an extra 15 minutes a day and a recent review of our school times highlighted this discrepancy that needs to be addressed.
Student Banking Helpers Wanted
We are looking for a couple of volunteers who would like to help process the Commonwealth Student Banking on Thursday mornings. Bank bags are sent up from classrooms, and banking helpers process the transactions, count the money and take it to the bank. It takes about one hour, but would need to be regularly on a Thursday morning. Please check with Cathie in the front office if you would like some more information, or would like to help.
Before & After School Safety
BEFORE SCHOOL: Unless there are special circumstances or students are accompanied by a parent or attending OSHC, students should not be at school before 8:35am. Once primary students have dropped their bags at their classroom, they should go to the primary yard/playground. Junior primary students should go to the JP playground unless their teacher asks them to enter their classroom.
Any student arriving before 8:35am without a parent or carer should wait in the courtyard until the bell sounds.
AFTER SCHOOL: When the 3:30pm bell sounds students should leave the play areas unless directly supervised by a parent or carer. All students should leave the JP playground at 3:30pm as this area is required for OSHC.
Students waiting for collection by parents after 3:30pm must wait at the front of the school near the path to the office so they can be clearly seen by staff and assisted if required.
