The St Michael’s teaching day begins at 8.25am and ends for Years 1-6 at 3.00pm, and for Years 7 & 8 at 3.30pm, but our day is longer for our busy parents if you need us.
Before School Care
The school doors open at 7.30am. Pupils arriving onsite before 8.00am report to Before School Care which is supervised by a staff member. This is a calm environment in which to chat, read or catch up on last-minute homework. At 8.00am, pupils report to their home classrooms, to greet their class teachers and classmates, and organize themselves for morning lessons. There is no charge for Before School Care.
After School Care
After School Care begins at 3.15pm. All Year 1-6 pupils on site at this time join After School Care, whether pre-booked or not. Years 7 & 8 pupils join after 3.30pm. Pupils move to the classroom to complete homework and play. Afternoon tea – a drink and variously a piece of fruit or baking – is served for those still on site after 4.15pm. An hourly fee for After School Care is charged in quarter-hour increments. After School Care closes at 5.30pm. A late fee is charged.
After School Clubs
Each term, After School Clubs are offered. These vary each term, and most operate until 4.15pm. There may be a charge for a club, depending on any materials required, and whether or not the club is taken by an outside instructor. Pupils may join After School Care once their club finishes, until 5.30pm. After School Fees apply from the time that the club ends.
The St Michael’s Holiday Programme runs variously during the school holidays. The dates are published in advance. Children may enrol weekly or for individual days and half-days. We believe our pupils should spend some part of their holiday away from school, so our Holiday Programme does not run for the full duration of any holiday. The Holiday Programme does not operate on public holidays which fall during school holidays. In particular, Easter and ANZAC Day often fall in the April holidays.
