Re: The End to the School Day Time will be 3.00pm Monday-Friday in 2020 –


The Board of Trustees wishes to extend our sincere thanks to everyone for your support of the trial process that we have undergone throughout 2019 to end the school day at 2.30pm. After careful consideration, the board has decided to return to a 3pm finish in 2020.

  1. Community consultation took place one to one, in focus groups and via an online survey sent to staff, students and parents in Term 1 and again in Term 3.
  2. The survey data showed that the group largely affected by the 2.30pm finish is parents of children between Year 0–10. This group represents 84.56% of the school roll. 60.4% of this group voted to return to a 3.00pm finish.

The Board and School Management believe that the 3pm finish best supports student achievement outcomes and provides increased opportunity to build school culture and leadership.

After School Care and Bus providers will be notified so services are realigned for the start of the 2020 school year.
