Day to Day

It's important for you and your child to know the school routines and expectations.

Drop-off arrangements 

Primary Campus: Our school day starts at 07:40. We have three designated drop-off lanes that open at 07:15 each morning.

Early drop-off from 07:00 will only be at Kerayong lane. Parents are welcome to park and accompany their child into school from 07:15. 

Secondary Campus: All students should be in their tutor rooms in time for the start of the school day at 07:55. In the morning, students should be dropped off at the drop-off zone in the back car park no earlier than 07:15. You can find the Secondary daily timetable here.

Pick-up arrangements 

Primary Campus: Our school day ends at 14:20 for all students. At 14:30 ECAs (Extra Curricular Activities) begin. These end at 15:30.

Secondary Campus:   All students should be in their tutor rooms in time for the start of the school day at 07:55. Lesson timings remain the same as last year and can be found here

Our school day ends at 14:45 for all students.      At the end of the day, cars should arrive on campus no earlier than 14:00. For pick-up, there are three designated pick up points that operate on a surname basis. Our staff will be on hand to keep our students safe and enable the traffic to flow - they should be treated respectfully at all times. Please remember that the speed limit on campus is 15km/hour and, for environmental reasons, we ask that engines are turned off whilst waiting. If you employ a driver, please inform them of these expectations to avoid confusion.

Students participating in Exploration Pathway Activities after school must leave campus as soon as their activity ends. The campus officially closes at 16:30 and no student should be on campus after this unless they are participating in an official school event.

School Bus

Please access SchoolsBuddy using your login for all bus matters or visit the Alice Smith Transport site for further information. If you wish to sign up for the school bus service, this link will take you to the KLASS Bus Transportation Signup page, and more information.


If your child is absent please email their teacher or form tutor with details and copy the school office at [email protected] (Primary) or [email protected] (Secondary). You will find the teacher email addresses in iSAMS parent under 'My Children - Key School Contacts'.

School meals 

Primary Campus: Our school meals are prepared by Petite Cafe who has more than 19 years of experience in operating school cafeterias. The school meals consist of either a local or continental breakfast and choice of an Asian, Vegetarian or Western lunch. 

The school meals can be ordered from KLASS o.p.s

Students who do not wish to order a school meal may bring their own packed meal box from home. Parents are encouraged to support the school’s healthy eating policy by providing a healthy, balanced packed snack and lunch. Please note that we are an allergy aware school and as such parents are requested not to send in food items containing nuts.

Secondary Campus: EP campus runs a grab‘n‘go style food service due to the redevelopment of the site and construction of KLASS Hub. There is a range of food and beverage options available. Students in Key Stages 3 & 4 use Vircle as the sole payment method. Vircle offers parents greater oversight of their child’s food choices. Sixth formers and parents are able to pay via e-wallet, although this option is restricted to only specific payment points.

You can see updates on the progress of the new KLASS Hub here.

In order to support our students with food allergies, we strive to be an allergy aware school. School meals and food served in our Parent Deli and Coffee Shop are nut free. All parents can support us by ensuring that snacks and meals that come from home are also nut free. We appreciate your willingness to help us achieve this standard to best ensure a safe environment for all of our students.
