New Primary School Students
In 2019, our student stationery requirements will be managed by the College with parents no longer required to purchase stationery as it is covered in the schools fees and is delivered directly to the classroom.
IPAD DEVICES (YEAR 3 - YEAR 6):
iPad devices will be available for collection from the library on the first day of school. Please ensure you have read and signed the parent consent form.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:
On the first day of school, please go direct to the classroom (if you know the class they are going to) or the primary school administration office, where staff will escort your child to their classroom.
UNIFORM TIMETABLE: All families will receive an email during the holidays from the Primary School Office with information about the Uniform Timetable.
The Primary School Uniform Timetable advises on which days to wear which uniform.
At the start of each term, this information is updated and available via the SEQTA Engage Portal on our website and the College Shop webpage.
Please note that SEQTA Engage will not be available until your child has commenced their studies at Immanuel and your login details will be emailed to you in the first week of school.
PARKING AND CAR PARK HEROES:
Parking in the first couple of weeks of a new school term can be busy. To keep the traffic flowing smoothly, we will have staff guiding traffic in the first two weeks of the term.
Primary School parents are encouraged to park near the Worship Centre or down by the swimming pool/College Shop. Rim Road is also another option for parking and drop off.
The Immanuel Early Learning Centre Car Park (out the front of the Main Administration Building) is strictly off limits for College families to park or drop off children unless they have a child attending the IELC.
We know that it can be stressful for parents trying to find a park and then walking their child to class and then to turn around and have to rush off to work/other commitments. To make your life easier, we have our Car Park Super Heroes (I believe capes and masks are part of the ensemble) to meet you at the drop and go zones and walk your child to class. This is a wonderful service and creates a positive synergy between our senior students and primary.
PRIMARY SCHOOL TUCKSHOP:
All recess and lunch orders must be lodged online (refer to information regarding FlexiSchools), and orders must be placed before 9:00 am. Primary School Tuckshop operates on the following days: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Menus are available via the College website.
Grandparent’s Day is on 28 August 2019. To ensure that your child’s grandparents receive an invitation, please register their details via the Grandparent’s Day link on the New Families webpage.
LEARN TO SWIM PROGRAM FOR PREP STUDENTS
In 2019 our Prep students will be given ten free lessons in our Learn to Swim Program. It is anticipated that the lessons will take place after school and further information regarding how to apply and timetables will be communicated in January.
Under the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (Qld) parents have a legal obligation to ensure that their children attend school and if your child is likely to be absent from school for more than 10 consecutive school days (e.g. holiday, illness), prior approval must be obtained from the Principal. An Application for Exemption form can be obtained either from Student Services or the Enrolments Registrar.
SIGNING OUT EARLY:
If your child is in the Primary School and needs to leave early, you must meet them personally at Student Services to sign them out.
If your child is absent from school, please call the Absentee Line on 5477 3459.
