Teachers and support staff are expected to be at school by 8.15 am and will be encouraged to spend the hours before formal instruction begins at 10am, to plan and prepare lessons, mark work, assess students, provide catch-up tutorials, participate in professional learning etc. This will be organised on a rotation basis to free teachers to be with students and supervise their activities.  

Facilitated learning and instruction will begin by 10am and all students are expected to be in full attendance at this time.

The period from 3pm to 4pm provides an additional opportunity for students to participate in additional supervised learning activities. This is a time when some of our partners may work with students on technology, engineering and science projects and activities for example.
