Winter Uniform:  All children from GR R-7 will start wearing their Winter uniform when school opens for Term 2, Tuesday 7th May.  Please see your child’s diary for the correct winter uniform requirements or click on the link to view the uniform requirements.


Aftercare:  Parents as of the 1st March please note that children waiting for their older sibling to finish an activity will be signed into aftercare and you will be billed.  The number of siblings has grown substantially at 345 and CHP and as a school, we are now unable to accommodate and supervise children waiting for siblings to finish their co-curricular activities for free any longer. Therefore, they would need to be collected as soon as they have finished with school or they will be signed into aftercare and cared for.
