Student Supervision Before and After School

The Department of Education & Training’s policy requires our school grounds to be supervised 10 minutes before classes commence and 10 minutes after classes are dismissed each day (so from 8:50am and until 3:40pm). Staff are scheduled to supervise the school grounds accordingly each day. Students who are at school earlier or later than the supervised times, should be enrolled in the Out of School Care Program (contact OSHClub who provide this service at Hamilton (Gray St) Primary School). Students not collected by 3.40 are required to wait in the office until parents arrive.
