Wake Up

Senior Boarders (Years 11 and 12) are expected to be responsible for getting themselves up in the morning. Wake-up takes place for Year 10 and below from 7:00 AM and prefects do a tour to see that boys are up. Breakfast is available in the Edmund Webb House until 7:45 AM Monday to Friday and at school until 8:25 AM. Those boys with early morning trainings may either organise to eat earlier, or may choose to take food with them and eat it after training has been completed at school, provided that there is sufficient time. Boarders are NOT to be late for period 1 – all expectations for punctuality expected of a ‘day’ student MUST also stand for boarders. School detentions will follow for lateness to class.

All boys must have left the House by 7:45 AM Monday to Friday. Failure to be out on time will lead to consequences for the student.

Boys are encouraged to depart as a group to encourage cohesion and safety. Boys are to move their leave card (located in the foyer) to indicate their whereabouts.
