In recent years we have allowed children to play after school on the oval and playground equipment when they are supervised by an adult.  Students who do not have an adult supervising them need to vacate the school at the end of the school day or go to the school office for collection.  The school has an onsite after school care provider, Mulberry Tree, and a number of students also attend Brighton Kids after school care.  Details of these services can be found in the Parent Handbook or are available from the front office.

If you are running a few minutes late please contact the front office and a message can be passed on to your child; they are always welcome to wait in the front office until you arrive.
