Change to Before School Waiting Areas

Parents and Carers, as we continue to grow, it is imperative that we continue to move forward with the changes. Today (Fri 20th), Bounty enrolled its 200th Prep student. Part of this change is the Before School Waiting Areas. Currently, Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 students wait in the Early Years Undercover Area. The Years 3-6 students wait in the Middle Years Undercover Area.

As of Monday 23rd March 2015, there will be a change to the waiting areas. The following changes will occur:

  • Prep students who arrive between 8:00am – 8:20am are able to wait in the Middle Years Undercover Area. At 8:20am, Prep students will be collected from here and then walked to the Hall which is located behind the Administration Block. Prep students who arrive after 8:20am then wait in the Hall from 8:20am – 8:40am. When the bell rings, students then move to their classrooms.
  • Yr 1-2 students who arrive between 8:00am – 8:20am are able to wait in the Middle Years Undercover Area. At 8:20am, Yr 1-2 students will be collected from here and then walked to the Early Years Undercover Area which is located behind the Administration Block. Yrs 1-2 students who arrive after 8:20am then wait in the EY Undercover Area from 8:20am – 8:40am. When the bell rings, students then move to their classrooms.
  • All Yr 3-6 students wait in the Middle Years Undercover Are from 8:00am – 8:40am. When the bell rings, students then move to their classrooms.

Students are reminded that they must wait for the staff members on duty to direct students away from the supervised areas. We thank parents for supporting us and waiting in the 3 identified areas before school.
