Interruptions to instruction

All members of staff must seek to preserve instructional time. To maximise instructional time students should only be sent to the office at recess and lunchtimes except for accident or serious illness, or at the request of the Principal or Assistant Principal. The office staff will ensure announcements are only made directly before recess, lunch and dismissal if necessary. Teacher discretion is ustilised for toilet breaks, and should always be made with consideration to ensure maximisation of instructional time.
