Arrivals

Parents are encouraged to ensure that students arrive at school prior to 8:25am, so that they have the opportunity to organise themselves and be ready to start their school day promptly at 8:30am. Students who are consistently late miss out on gathering with their peer group. Their learning opportunities are disrupted, as are the opportunities of their classmates. Students who arrive after 8:30am are required to be signed in at the office to collect a late slip to take to class. Students who arrive late will be marked late on the morning roll.

Student Absences

Whenever a student is absent a written explanation from the parent must be presented to the teacher on the day of return to school.  If the school is not informed of a child being absent a note requesting the reason for absence will be sent home with the child upon their return. If a child is late to school (after 8.45am), parents must complete the ‘blue’ slip at the school office. This slip will then be given to the classroom teacher. No child may leave the school grounds during school hours without a parent completing a ‘pink’ slip from the school office.

School Banking

Francis Jordan Catholic School offers the School Banking service each Friday morning. School Banking is a fun, interactive and engaging way for young children to learn about money and develop good savings habits. Students who deposit money into their Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account through School Banking earn Dollarmite tokens which they can redeem for rewards.

It’s also a great fundraising activity, as Francis Jordan receives 5% of every individual deposit made at school (up to $10).

Application forms can be collected from the office.
