If you wish to speak to a teacher please leave a message with the office, as it is often difficult for teachers to come to the phone during class time or at lunch when other duties take priority. The office will normally close during the designated vacation period. An answering service will be available and cleared during these vacation periods.

Book Pack and Student Diaries

The College operates a textbook rental plan which covers textbooks in all subjects, and represents a considerable saving to parents. Textbooks will be issued to the students during the first week of the school year. Students are asked to sign their name into each book and accept the responsibility for returning the text at the end of the year. A charge will be made for any textbook which has been lost, damaged or defaced. Exercise books, folders and student diaries will be distributed to all students over the first week of Term 1 and the cost included in the Term 1 account.

Student diaries are issued on the first day of Term 1. Students are expected to take their diary to each lesson and record details of assignments, homework and other school related activities. The diary is also the first method of communication between school and home. If a diary is lost or damaged, a new one can be purchased from the school office. 

Canteen

The College does not have a canteen. However, lunches such as wraps are sold by student fundraising groups from the EOS kitchen area most days. 

Chapel

There is a weekly Chapel service and combined assembly in which all students participate on Wednesdays. The service is usually led by the College Chaplain.

Driving to School

Lockers are available for students to use at the College. To apply for a locker, students are to bring in a locker request form with a $10 deposit for Kim who will provide a key. When the key is returned, the deposit is refunded. Locker audit form.

Mobile Phones

It is not appropriate for students to use mobile phones or electronic music/game players during the school day. Mobile phones must be turned off during classes unless instructed to use them by a teacher. In times of emergency, students are able to contact parents from the College Office. iPods and other personal music players may be used by Year 11 and 12 students in the Senior study areas and Library only. If mobile phones and electronic music/game players are being used in class time they will be confiscated from the student and kept in the school office until the end of the school day. Students should not call parents from their mobile phone if they are sick. The student should present themselves to the office where staff will admit them to Sick Bay and contact their parents.

School Sport

School Sport is held every Friday afternoon and is compulsory for all students. A wide variety of sports are offered. For those who are taken to venues outside the school for sport, a note from a parent must be given to the supervising teacher if the student is to be dismissed from the venue and not return to school. If a parent/guardian collects a student from sport they are required to personally inform the teacher.
