At MPW we have a focus on students being at school on time. A bell is rung at 8:45 a.m. Students are encouraged to be in classes by 8.45am. This is an opportunity for books to be changed, notices to be handed in, chairs to put down and their learning area set for a day.
At 8:58am the music plays for 2 minutes by which time all students are ready for the roll to be marked. If a student is late (after 9:00 am) together with their parent/carer they visit the office to sign the 'Late Arrivals Register' and collect a late card which they show their teacher as they enter the room.
