In the morning, cloakroom doors are opened at 8:45am and we encourage the children to arrive as close to that time as possible  There will be focused tasks for your child to complete each morning during registration.  Morning registration will be completed and the cloakroom doors closed at 9:00am.

Children who arrive after the doors are closed will need to go to the main entrance door by the school office and sign in as late on the computer entry sign in system.
