From 8.15 am - 8.30 am Year 1 - 6 students may be dropped off at school and will be supervised by College staff. Students must sit and wait quietly outside their classrooms and stay there during this time. No playground play is allowed during this time. Students may bring a book to read or quiet activity to do.
Kindergarten and Pre Primary parents are asked to drop off their children directly to the classroom at 8.30 am.
The College gates will be open from 8.00 am. Students arriving at that time without parent supervision are asked to sit quietly outside their classrooms. The main gates will be locked at 8.45 am and reopened at 2.30 pm. Late students, arriving after 8.30 am, must report to the College office, receive a late pass and go to their class, using the central Administration doors.
In the event that your child is going to be late or absent from school, please ring the College office in the morning. Please also send a note to the school explaining their absence. This is a legal requirement. Please keep students at home if they are unwell.
Students or siblings of students are not permitted to play on the playground equipment before or after school, without parent supervision. This is standard practice at schools.
As Kindergarten and Pre Primary students are to be delivered directly to the classroom, the east side of the school is designated for parents of Kindergarten and Pre Primary students. Please park in the bays not blocking the flow of traffic. Year 1 - 12 parents may park along the perimeter of the College, on the street or verge. Please do not park in front of the main gates. Please park to allow other parents easy access to the gates and space to get in and out of their cars and to allow the maximum amount of cars to park. Please use the 'Kiss N Drive' areas. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.
Interviews with the Principal or teaching staff must be formally made. It is preferable for interviews to be conducted after school, as at the beginning of the day teachers are attending to the students and preparing for the day. There are set times throughout the year for Parent Interviews. The first Interviews are conducted in Term 1 of the year. Please use the Student Organisers (Diaries) or Communication Books for this purpose, speak directly to the teacher briefly at the beginning of the day to make an appointment, or see the College Office for a booking. Please use emails to communicate with staff or make a booking to speak with them.
College Emergency Form
Please complete the College Emergency Form which was included in your enrolment pack, if you have not already returned it to us, please do so as soon as possible to the College office. Please update your details throughout the year as soon as there are changes to your information, in particular contact details and address, custody arrangements and changes.
Please ensure that all students are attired in the correct College Uniform at all times. Please read the College Handbooks and Diaries for details. Students coming to school wearing the incorrect uniform can report to their teacher for a Uniform pass for the day.
Please ensure that the College office has received all Enrolment Agreements, copies of Birth Certificates, copies of Immunisation Records, school reports, NAPLAN reports, Allergy, Medical or Asthma Action Plans, etc. as soon as possible. We will contact you if there are some records missing. Please ensure that you make an appointment to meet with the principal if your child has an Anaphylaxis or other Medial Plan that you have not discussed previously
Alkimos Baptist College is an 'Allergy Aware' school. As such, we do not encourage children to share their food. Birthday treats that are given to the class teacher at the beginning of the day for the students to share will be held and given out at the end of the day for the students to take home and for parents to decide whether it is suitable for their child. Please do not send Birthday Cake as it is difficult to cut and handle and may also contain allergy ingredients. If your child has a food allergy, please see the class teacher and ensure that the Principal has a current Anaphylaxis action plan. You may like to supply a substitute treat for your child to have in place of the birthday treats given out. eg. Small jellybean packet/small prize.
