BIRTH TO 4 YEARS
Pre-school age children and their parents are invited to the School each Wednesday from 9:00am to 10:30am to engage with other families through art and craft, stories, and a wide range of fun experiences. Our Early Learning welcomes all children and is a positive introduction to Larmenier. It is held in our Kindergarten classroom, allowing children to be familiar with the room and facilities if they should go on to enrol in Kindergarten.
Please contact the School if you would like more information on this program.
BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE
After School Hours Care is provided on site by CatholicCare Children's Service by qualified staff. Children enjoy a healthy snack after school and then experience a variety of fun activities from 3:00pm till 6:00pm. Care is available on either a permanent or casual basis. Children need to be enrolled prior to making a booking. Children are welcome to be enrolled just in case this service is required.
Please phone CatholicCare on 1300 119 455 or email email@example.com
CHILD SAFE COMMUNITY
Every child is entitled to be educated and cared for in a safe environment, and in a manner that enhances their opportunities to grow and develop to reach their full potential.
Larmenier Catholic Primary School operates under the Child Safe Framework. This Framework sets out the behavioural and system requirements necessary to guide child safety practices and procedures within Catholic education in Tasmania. The Framework can be accessed as part of the Child Safe Organisation Policy located on the Catholic Education Tasmania website.
WORKING WITH VULNERABLE PEOPLE
Larmenier Catholic Primary School requires employees, volunteers and external providers engaged to work on school sites to hold Working with Vulnerable People registration. Working with Vulnerable People is a compulsory background check for many people who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable people in Tasmania. Application for the Working With Vunerable People check is through the Justice Department Website.
All non-teaching employees and nominated volunteers within Catholic schools are required to take part in the Police Check process. Police checks are conducted every three years (maximum) or as required by changes in job/task responsibilities.
For more information please access the Working in Catholic Education section of the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.
WORKING WITH OUR PARISH COMMUNITY
Larmenier Catholic Primary School is associated with the Church of St Peter’s in Kings Meadows. Parish Priest Fr Des Holm MSC PP is a valued member of our school community. Our class Masses are held in the Mt Esk Chapel, with the whole school travelling to St Peter’s Church once a term to celebrate Mass together.
Kings Meadows Parish offers a family-centred, parish-based, school-supported sacramental program available to all children from the area.
