  Welcome to Green Point Christian College.

  We trust this is the beginning of a long association from which both you and your family will richly benefit.
  It can sometimes be challenging for children to start at a new school, yet we are hopeful that our friendly
  staff, children and parent body will help both you and your son or daughter to settle in quickly. If you have
  any questions, don’t hesitate to speak with your child’s Class Teacher. Right from the beginning we will be
  endeavouring to teach your children about the things of God, along with paying close attention to their
  academic, social, emotional and physical development.

  After settling in, children will discover a variety of ways they can become further involved in College life;
  including Chess Club, Choir, Band, Student Representative Council, Sporting Teams and Electives.

  This Handbook will help you and your child with daily routines and expectations, and there is important
  information contained here to make his or her life at school as simple as possible.

  A great way to know what is happening in the College community is to read our communication
  newsletter called “The Messenger”, sent via our parent portal, called “Parent Lounge”, weekly to College
  families. This gives information about upcoming events and current College news. I encourage you to
  start reading it even now before you join us.

  There are people who pray regularly for the College and our students. Be encouraged, those people are
  praying for your children. We trust that God will bless your family and your children as they undertake
  their schooling here at Green Point Christian College.

  So welcome to the beginning of an exciting learning journey for your child, partnering together with the
  College community, for Excellence in Christ Centred Education. We have a wonderful team ready to assist
  you.

  May God bless you and your child on their learning journey.

 Green Point Christian College students are Respectful Learners who aim to Excel.

            We encourage all our students to embrace our Primary School Code of Conduct

   Respect
   Respect God: Matthew 22:34 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all of your soul and
   with all of your mind.”

   Respect Others: Adults and Students: Titus 3:1 “Remind the people to be subject to rulers and
   authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11, “Therefore
   encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

   Respect Yourself: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom
   you have received from God?”

   Respect Property: Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell
   in it.”

   Respect Rules: Romans 13:1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no
   authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by
   God.”

   Learn
   Be Ready: Be in the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment and with a positive learning
   attitude. Proverbs 23:12 “Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge.”

   Be Responsible: Teachers and parents can only encourage you to learn, the learning and effort must
   come from you! Galatians 6:5 “Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can
   with your own life.”

   Excel
   Do your very best! Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the
   Lord, not for human masters”.

                                                   School Routines
 Chapel / Assemblies
 This is a worship time and on alternate weeks a grade presents an item followed by a Bible story and Bible verse.
 Awards are handed out, Head of School Awardees are recognised and success is celebrated. Parents are very
 welcome to join us at all Assemblies and Chapels.

 Morning Assemblies (Monday and Friday)
 Before going into class, children meet briefly together on the top quadrangle, for announcements and
 presentations.

 Absences and Lateness
 If your child is arrives after 9am, they will need to go to the Office to get a late note prior to going to the classroom.

 If you need to pick up your child early, please send along a note to the teacher. The teacher will send your child to
 the Office for pick up. Then you can sign them out. All students need to be sent down to meet you at the Office
 rather than picking them up at the classrooms.

 The school has a legal responsibility to keep records of attendance for all students. Any absence from school
 should be explained in a note to the office, via email to Absentees@gpcc.nsw.edu.au or by phoning the
 College’s Absentee Line on 43 679 950 before 9:30am on the day of their absence.

 Wellbeing - A positive approach
 Disciplinary matters are generally handled by the classroom teacher. Each class has their own behaviour/
 reward systems recognising effort in both academic and behavioural areas. This includes certificates, stickers
 and class rewards. As well as this, each teacher nominates a student to receive a “Head of Primary School
 Award”, who is acknowledged at Chapel and presented with a certificate.

 Discipline in the Primary School should be an extension of the discipline that takes place in the home. When
 disciplining children we try to find the appropriate balance between demonstrating grace and helping the
 students recognise there are consequences for their actions. Our Behaviour Management Policy can be found
 on the College Website (www.gpcc.nsw.edu.au).

 Lines of Communication
 If a situation arises which needs to be addressed, in the first instance, it is appropriate to speak directly to the
 class teacher. If the situation is still not resolved, the next step is to speak to the Head of Primary School, and if
 appropriate, the Principal.

 Parents and teachers are encouraged to use email to communicate. Due to the large number of emails received,
 teachers have a 3-day turn around policy. If it is urgent, please call the Office and leave a message to be passed
 on. Parents are also welcome to meet with teachers in a scheduled meeting at a mutually convenient time.

 Illness at School
 Parents will be contacted if students become ill or injured at school. If parents cannot be contacted, the
 emergency contact person noted on the Family Information Form will be contacted. If the illness or injury
 requires prompt attention, appropriate action will be taken and parents notified as soon as possible.

 Any medication that needs to be given at school must have written instructions and be labelled with the
 student’s name and class and sent to the Office. The Office staff will administer the student’s medication.
 No medication will be administered by the school if the student has no personal medication. We do not give
 students Panadol at the College.

 Canteen
 •   Open every day from 8.30am to 2pm.
 •   Lunch orders may be lodged at the Canteen before classes commence or lodged online.
 •   The Canteen - “TheMunchery” - have partnered with Munch Monitor (www.munchmonitor.com) to
     provide an online ordering and payment system. Parents must register to use this system by going to the
     College Website / School Life / Canteen. Click on the link provided. Registration will require entry of a
     School Code (username: greenpoint, password: munch2251).
 •   All orders not lodged online should be written on a paper bag with the student’s name and class on the
     bottom of the bag and the order in the middle.
 •   Primary and Secondary students have separate queues at the canteen.

     		          The Canteen Menu is on the College Website (www.gpcc.nsw.edu.au)

 College Newsletter
 Our College Newsletter, “The Messenger”, is accessed through our parent portal called, “Parent Lounge” and a
 reminder is emailed every Thursday. The newsletter is an important communication tool for information and
 events happening within the College community. Please ensure we have your current email address so we can
 send the reminder.

 School Security and Volunteers
 Parent helpers need to sign in at the Front Office and wear a volunteer badge each time they come to help at
 school. All Volunteers need to obtain a “Volunteers Working with Children Check” which is free.

 The steps involved are:
 1. Apply online.
 2. Receive an Application Number (starting with APP).
 3. Go to a Motor Registry to show identification. There is no fee for volunteers.
 4. A receipt will be issued - but this is not the WWC number.
 5. A WWC will be issued within a couple of weeks,but usually earlier.

 To be able to run the clearance check, Mrs Parkinson from the College Office will need to receive the following
 information:
 1. Your Surname
 2. Your WWC number
 3. Your Date of Birth

 This information can be sent directly to Mrs Parkinson at sparkinson@gpcc.nsw.edu.au or your child’s
 teacher can forward it on for you. The clearance is valid for 5 years.

 Uniforms
 Correct school uniform must be worn to and from school and whilst at school, all students are expected to be
 correctly attired. All items of uniform are to be purchased through the Uniform Shop.

 Between September and May all students must wear a hat, bucket hat or sports cap, whenever they are
 outside the classroom. All items of clothing, including hats and bags, must be labelled clearly with your child’s
 name. Students with hair longer than shoulder length, must have it tied back.

 A photo of the correct shoe styles appears on the Uniform information on page 16 of this handbook.

 Students may wear their sports uniforms to and from school on days specified by the class teacher and dress
 uniform on all other occasions.

 A list of uniform items and prices are on the following pages of this handbook.

 Withdrawal Of Students
 Parents need to give at least 10 weeks of school term time (not inclusive of holidays) notice in writing of
 termination of enrolment and failure to do so may render them liable for one Term’s fees.

                                                  Curriculum
  1. The Curriculum followed in Primary School is based on the NSW Education Standard Authority (NESA)
     requirements. The NESA Website is: www.educationstandards.nsw.edu.au.

  2.    Our teachers have developed high quality programs that focus on the cognitive engagement of students,
       so that they can be active and engaged learners. Explicit teaching outlines clear directions and goals in
       each lesson. Lessons are presented in a manner that develops creativity, critical thinking and problem-
       solving skills, using a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset. Our teachers construct lessons
       around skill development in areas such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, reflection,
       collaborative learning and hands on guided investigations. Students are assessed on their knowledge
       and understanding at regular intervals and provided with an outline of clear success criteria, so that
       learning intentions are known.

  3. A Christian worldview is integrated throughout the curriculum and classrooms.

  4. All students attend a specialist lesson each week in the areas of IT, Japanese, Music and Physical
     Education.

  5. Key Learning Areas in the Primary School include:

  				                             English
  				                             Mathematics
  				                             Science and Technology
  				                             Creative Arts: Drama, Dance, Visual Arts, Music
  				                             Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE)
  				                             Human Society and its Environment (HSIE): Geography and History
  				                             Languages: Japanese
  				                             Biblical Studies

   Our registration system is a purpose-built platform, named LookedAfter. It is a user-friendly online platform
   which provides families with flexibility and control of their account and bookings from a mobile device. We
   recommend that all parents enrol their child in LookedAfter to ensure that, if and when emergencies arise,
   your child has a safe and engaging place to play until you arrive. Before your child can attend the Extend
   service, they must be enrolled to ensure we have all current medical information and emergency contacts.
   Each child’s safety is our paramount concern and so we hope that you will work with us to be proactive
   and enrol your child. Please go to https://www.lookedafter.com for bookings and fee information. For
   information on the child care subsidy, please visit our website or use our Fee Relief Calculator.

   Ultimate Booking Flexibility
   Families can book online up to the last minute prior to the start time of their service, as bookings are now
   registered in our system instantaneously! If you make a booking for your child on the same day that the
   booking will take place, please also contact the school office to communicate your child’s movements at
   the end of the school day. We would like the children to transition from their school day to after school
   care smoothly and this process will really help us to do so. We appreciate your co-operation.

   Medication
   If your child has a medical need that requires medication, we ask that you provide the Extend service with
   a copy of the required medication. It is our priority to ensure your child’s safety. We must therefore have
   your child’s medication stored onsite to ensure it is within reach if an emergency occurs. This includes and
   is not limited to; Epipens, Ventolin puffers, Clarityn. Please work with us to ensure the safety of your child
   at the service.

   Hours of Operation
   Before School Care: 7:00am – 8:45am
   After School Care: 3:15pm – 6:00pm.

                                       Traffic Management Plan
                                       For Our Children’s Safety

    This Traffic Management Plan has been produced with the paramount aim of the safety of
    children when they arrive or leave the College. Compliance with this Plan will also improve
    traffic flow in peak periods.

    1.   SPEED LIMIT is strictly 10kph and is a share pedestrian/vehicle area. Please take great care in the carparkto
         avoid injury or incident.

    2.   To allow students and parents to move safely to/around vehicles, please adjere to a MAXIMUM SPEED OF
         10KPM.

    3.   TRAFFIC WARDENS will be on duty during peak periods to supervise the movement of students and
         vehicles. Please follow their instructions.

    4.   Three PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS, monitored by Traffic Wardens, should be used in order to promote the safe
         separation of pedestrians and vehicles.

    5.   The DROP OFF and PICK UP ZONE allows students to move to and from a supervised, covered walkway so
         that drivers can remain in their vehicles.

    6.   The FLOW LANE enables vehicles to circulate until either a parking space or until the student(s) in that
         vehicle can be dropped off or picked up.
