Before and after school care is provided on site by the YWCA.

Preschool Hours

Watson Preschool begins at 8.45 am each day and concludes at 2.45 pm. This allows families to drop off and pick up preschoolers then make their way to the primary site for older siblings, if required.

Before School

The school day begins at 9.00am. We provide a teacher before school from 8.45am as a roving supervisor outside and our library is open from 8.30am every morning. Generally, parents are welcome to come into the library at this time as well because sharing a story with your child is a lovely way to begin the day! However, due to COVID restrictions, children need to be dropped off at the gate for the remainder of 2021.

Kindergarten to Year 2 - children arrive at school and put their bags outside their classrooms. At 9.00am children line up in their class line to be greeted by their teacher and led into their classroom to commence the first session.

Years 3 to 6 - students place their bag in the line-up spots, the basketball court for year 5 and 6 and the paved area on Irvine Street for years 3 and 4.  At 9.00am students will assemble in their designated area for morning messages.

We ask children not to be on the playground equipment before school as there is only one teacher out on duty. This is for the safety of all the children especially during winter months when it can be slippery.

We appreciate children being at school in time to begin the school day at 9.00am. If your child is late to school they will need to be signed in at the front office before heading to class.

Parents on School Grounds

Majura Primary School welcomes connection with parents and other community members. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, for the remainder of 2021 adults need to have a significant curriculum requirement to come into the school. When at the school, all adults (including staff, parents and other carers) must wear a mask that fits securely around the face and covers the nose and mouth to provide the wearer with protection against infection. A scarf or bandana is not a face mask. In addition, all visitors must check into the site each time they arrive using the CBR check-in app. Even if it's  "just for a minute".

Leaving Early

If children need to leave early for any reason, they need to be collected from outside the front office. Please ensure that you are wearing a mask, and contact our office staff from outside the school. We will organise to have students brought out to you. If your child is returning to school during the day they must be signed back in through the front office.
