The Admin team would appreciate your support by making sure that any messages that need to be passed on to your child at the end of the day are always in before 2 pm.
Reception is a very busy place and to keep things running smoothly a staff member must leave the office to deliver these messages promptly at 2 pm, departing again to deliver more messages after 2 pm places undue strain on the Reception staff during a particularly busy time of the day.
After School Messages are for emergencies only i.e. when plans have changed during the day. Please do not use this service as a way of passing on info to your child that should have been told to them before school or to re-iterate messages that your child has already received e.g. reminding them of something you have already told them. If you have a Primary School student who may have trouble remembering what instructions you give them at the start of each day, please make an arrangement with them that there is a note in their bag that they can refer to eg even a picture note; if it’s ‘catch the bus’ have a bus picture in their bag etc.
To leave an After School message please call 6639 9300 then select 2, provide child’s name and class/year, the message and the name of the person leaving the message.
Staff cannot guarantee that messages received after 2 pm will be received. It is important that you note the time of day when leaving a message and remember if it is after 2 pm it may not reach its target.
