Macquarie Primary School

An ACT Public School

Reach out and aim high

School Hours

Please ensure students arrive at school in time to commence lessons at 9:00 am. This will allow them to have the best possible start to their learning day. There is no direct supervision of students in the playground between 8:30am and 8:45am, so please ensure students are dropped off as close to 8:55 am as possible.  If students need assistance before school it is available from the Front Office.

Each Monday morning lines are held on the Namadgi blacktop where we gather to welcome students and families to the week and pass on any messages.

The school day is as follows

  • 9am school begins
  • 10am fruit break
  • 10.50am bell rings for eating time
  • 11-11.30am recess
  • 12.50 bell rings for eating time
  • 1-1.40pm lunch
  • 3pm end of school

Wednesdays we have assemblies at 9.15am which are hosted by different classes. The times and specific days for these are in the newsletter.

The newsletter is sent home on Mondays, and Thursday is also a notes day.

Students will need to bring fruit or vegetables for fruit break, morning tea and lunch as well as a drink bottle and a sun safe hat.

The Library is open during lunch every day.
