School commences at 8:30am and finishes at 2:55pm. The students have a morning break from 11:00am to 11:25am. Lunch is supervised in the classrooms from 12:45pm to 12:55pm. Lunchtime play is from 12:55pm until 1:30pm. Students have a fruit break during the first session of the day.

Students are asked to be at school by 8:20am to prepare for the day. They should not arrive before 8:00am as there is no staff on duty until 8:00am. Students must be collected by 3:00 pm at the latest.

Parent Help

Parents are welcome and encouraged to help in many ways – Canteen, reading groups, library help, classroom support, gardening, office work or anything else you can offer. Our college canteen is only able to continue to function with the generous support of our parent volunteers. They are ably assisted in the canteen by some of our Student Representative Council.

All volunteers at the college must hold a current Northern Territory Working With Children Ochre Card. The college will hold a photocopy of your card in the office. Your children love to know you are involved and interested in their school.

Please remember to keep your contact details up to date at all times, and advise us if your home circumstances change for any reason. Please contact us if we can be of help at any time.
