School Hours


Supervision officially commences at 8.30am. Therefore, the school takes no responsibility for children before this time. Children are welcome to place their bags near classrooms after 8.30am, before playing out in the playground until the bell rings.

 

Carranballac currently operates two timetables.  Our Primary students (Foundation - Year 6) are scheduled to the Primary Timetable and our Secondary students (Year 7 - Year 9) are scheduled to our Secondary Timetable.

 

Primary students attend two morning sessions, followed by recess, another two sessions followed by lunch and then a final session in the afternoon.  Each classroom session runs for 60 minutes.  The school day starts at 8:45am every morning, with students encouraged to arrive between 8:30am-8:40am.  Students arriving after 8:45am will be marked late, resulting in contact from the school to the parents.

Secondary students attend Homeroom every morning, from 8:45 - 9am.  Classes are then scheduled for 50 minutes per lesson, breaking for recess and lunch through the day.  The school day starts at 8:45am every morning, with students encouraged to arrive between 8:30-8:40am. Students arriving after 8:45am will be marked late, resulting in contact from the school to the parents.

Students will be dismissed early on the last day of each term. Parents will be notified of the exact time in the College fortnightly Newsletter and by Compass School Manager.

 

Breakfast Club runs through the school term on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8am - 8:30am.  

 

To help our Foundation students to settle into a comfortable school situation, during February they will only attend on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We believe having a day off (Wednesday) in the middle of the week to rest at home will rejuvenate them enough to continue through to Friday.

 

On days of excessive heat or wet weather, the children will have shortened outside play times or may be indoors during recess or lunch.

 

Student absences are to be notified through Compass School Manager or by contacting the Admin Office (03) 9395 3533.  Please do not bring notes from home explaining absences.
