Drop-off/Pick-up Zone in Car Park: Please help us keep the traffic moving in the car park by reminding/advising anyone that drives students to/from school, that drivers are to park cars (or wait) in a marked car park while students are being taken in to or collected from their hub. Please do not park or wait in the drop-off/pick-up zone. Please see our Carpark Safety article here, together with a Mandarin translation. 

Late Arrivals to School: A friendly reminder that students must be signed in at the office if they arrive at school after 9am.

Absences: Another friendly reminder that the Office needs to know if your child is going to absent due to sickness, appointment or holiday. You can let us know via the Website, at the bottom of the homepage (see attached photos) or the App (see attached photo which shows an Absence icon on the top row) or send through an email to  It's super helpful for us to know prior to 9am so we can correctly mark your child absent on the Roll, rather than searching around the School for them.  Thank you!
