Off Site Procedures

Off site procedures for lunch passes and temporary out of ground passes.

Lunch Passes - Permanent ie For the Current Year

If parents or caregivers wish their child to go home for lunch on a regular basis, the student can obtain a lunchpass. The pass entitles the student to go from school to home and back again. It does NOT entitle the student to go to the shops or anywhere else. A letter should be given to the Deputy Principal early in the year for a pass to be issued.

Temporary Out-Of-Ground Passes

Apart from going home for lunch, school policy is against allowing students out of the school grounds, as we encourage students to enter into school life at lunchtime. Permission to leave the school grounds will only be granted if a signed note is received from parents or caregivers. Only the Principal, Deputy Principal and Assistant Principal can issue a pass.

NB - Temporary out-of-ground passes may be obtained each day during morning interval. Students must go to the Teacher in Charge of the Passes.
