Tutors
From time to time, parents request that a tutor be permitted to come to the school to work with their child. Please note that all such requests should be made to the principal, and where arrangements can be made to have the tutor work within the building, the proposed tutor will have to provide a recent police check (vulnerable sector) and will have to sign in with reception.
