Students who forget money 

Any student who is unable to meet the costs for sport, and do not make an alternative arrangement with Mr Wilson by Wednesday morning prior to the start of school, will be required to go to sport detention.

Early leaves

Early leave passes must be approved by the sports organiser and the deputy principal. As sport is an integral part of each student's school life, we advise that sport time is not an appropriate time for doctor's appointments. Students with early leave requests should see Mr. Wilson in the PE staffroom with their signed permission note and parental contact number.
