Late arrivals and early departures

All students who arrive late (after 9:05am) to school are required to sign in at the school office and obtain a late slip from the administration area. The late slip will be given to the classroom teacher.

Early departures must also be signed out through the school office administration area and receive an early departure slip for family records. 

Canteen

The Canteen is run under contract and is open five days a week.  Lunch can ordered online  at  https://quickcliq.com.au/  or via the quickcliq app.  They have a fully approved Food Safety Program in place.

To order lunch students can also write their name, class and order onto a reusable bag or brown paper bag. Please make sure all money is placed in the bag and carefully folded to ensure the money does not fall out. Orders must be placed in the classroom lunch tub which is taken to the Canteen before 9:30am.  As credit cannot be provided, children will be provided with a sandwich from the office if lunch has been forgotten or money not included. Parents and caregivers are asked to please send the money to school on the next day.

Assembly Location and Time
Please Note: Assemblies will not be undertaken while current government restrictions are in place.
Our school assembly is conducted in the school gymnasium at 2:15pm on a Friday.
If for any reason we change the location or time, we will update on our Facebook Page.
Medical Plans

Attached are downloadable files that you are able to print and fill out with a qualified, practising Medical Practitioner.  All medical forms should be updated annually or whenever the student’s medications or plans change. Our school sickbay officer is onsite from 10.00am - 3.00pm if you have any queries.

It is important to note that these are all medical documents and therefore must be completed and signed by the treating doctor (e.g. Immunology/Allergy Specialist, Pediatrician or General Practitioner). Please click on the links below to download required medical forms.

Volunteering
Please Note: Under current restrictions we have been advised to limit visitors onsite at this time. Any visitors to the school site between the hours of 8:15-3:10 must sign in at the school office. 
We are community-spirited school and we encourage parents and families to participate in all aspects of our programs. There are many opportunities to be directly involved in your child’s education. These opportunities include:
  • helping with school excursions and school events
  • collaborating and cooking with our 'Food for Everyone' parent group 
  • assistance with literacy and numeracy programs
  • participation in environment committees and fundraising groups
 
Please note: If you are interested in volunteering at Banyan Fields Primary School you will be asked to apply for a Working with Children (WWC) check. For more information about the WWC check, see: Working with Children.
