At the Centre, on enrolment, you, the student, will be placed
in a reception class. After three weeks you will be placed in
the class most appropriate to your level of English. Where possible,
you then remain with the same class for the whole of your stay
at the Centre and have the same class teacher for the whole
of this time.
Each class teacher develops a program of work for his/her
particular class. However, because students progress at different
rates, or if the level of work is not appropriate for the student,
then the Head Teacher may place the student into a more suitable
class. It is therefore not usual for a student to transfer from
one class to another.
REQUESTS TO LEAVE SCHOOL DURING THE DAY
If it is necessary for you to leave school during the school
day, you must bring a note from your parents to the Head Teacher
before school. This note should include the date, your name
and the name of the class teacher.
• Doctor and dental appointments should be made after
school, not during school hours, unless there are exceptional
• If you become sick at school and want to go home, you
may do so provided your parent or guardian is at home and gives
permission. Then you must tell your class teacher and get a
"Permission to go Home"
note from the office. This must be signed by the Head Teacher.
It must be brought back to your class teacher the following
day with your parent's signature.
• The student leaving early must also sign the "Leaving
Early Register" in the office.
• If, for any reason, your parent or guardian wishes to
take you from school during school hours, your parent or guardian
is requested to come to the office so that the office staff
can make arrangements to take you out of class.
• Senior students (over 18 years of age) have permission
to leave the school grounds at lunch-time. They must have an
identification card (provided by the school) and sign in at
the office before leaving the Centre.
All students must report to the clerical office if they arrive
after the 8.35 a.m. bell. Where possible, parents are asked
to send a note with their son or daughter to explain lateness.
ACCIDENTS OR ILLNESS
If you feel sick while at school, you can go to the clinic
(a room where you can lie down quietly). If a student is seriously
ill, parents are always informed. If a serious accident occurs,
students may also be taken to hospital. Parents will be phoned
and told to which hospital their child has been taken.
BUS AND TRAIN PASSES
Train and public bus passes take 2 to 3 weeks to be issued.
Private bus passes take from 1 to 4 weeks to be issued. The
office staff will help organise all passes.
LOST BUS OR TRAIN PASS

teacher and the office staff will help you get a replacement

A replacement bus pass will cost $12.00
If you are 16 years or over, one of the office staff will
give you an identification pass which will enable you to travel

a special pass. You must fill in a form which will be sent
to the State Rail Authority, together with a stamped addressed
envelope for the return of the special Identification Card.
Mobile phones are not welcome. Incoming calls must come through
the office. Student can use the public phone next to the Beverly

for you to have a mobile phone at school, your family must
write to the teacher in charge to explain why. Then the mobile
phone must be turned off in class time .No responsibility
taken for loss or theft of mobile phones.
Valuable items, including walkmans, Discmans and personal
computers should not be brought to school. If students need
to bring large amounts of cash to school (e.g. to pay a bill
for parents' after school) the cash should be deposited at
the office for safe keeDina. No resPonsibility is taken for
