  • From 8:45 a.m., the gates are opened to everyone and children go directly to their classrooms. In their classrooms, they undertake quiet activities until the start of the school day at 9:00 a.m.

Please note that we do not provide supervision for children before they get into class or after they are dismissed. Parents or carers are fully responsible for the behaviour and safety of their children at these times.

Please encourage your children to be punctual. This not only means they have an uninterrupted start to the day, but it is also a great habit which will help them later in life. Not too early, never late!
