Dismissal of Pupils:
Teachers must return to their classrooms after 1pm (infants) and 2pm (all others) to continue their work.  It is not their responsibility to take care of children who are not collected on time.

If an emergency arises and you cannot be on time collecting your child at 1pm or 2pm, please call the school at 01-8331554.

Infants finish school at 1.00 pm and file out from their rooms in an orderly manner, accompanied by their class teachers, using their designated exit doors.

Parents wait in the yard and the teachers hand over the children into their care, child by child. The Front Gate will close promptly at 1:10pm.

All other classes finish school at 2:00pm. The children will line up in their class lines in front of the front steps and each class teacher will ensure that the children in their class are handed over to their parents or leave the school safely if written permission has been given by their parents for the child to go home alone. Some children whose parents choose to use the back gate will be collected similarly from the class lines. The Front and Back Gate will close promptly at 2:10pm.

Children who are not collected on time at 1pm and 2pm will wait in the Front Office, as the teachers must return to their classrooms to continue their work.
