Rules and policies

Uniform

All students are required to follow the Kallangur State School uniform policy (PDF, 108 KB)

Behaviour

Students and teachers at Kallangur State School have a right to learn and teach in a safe, supported environment and to be treated with respect by other students, staff and community members.

Our core school values are:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Care
  • Effort

Students are required to treat people and equipment within the community with respect, exercise responsibility in their activities and daily routines, take care and make an effort in all that they do. Students at Kallangur strive to achieve their potential in all learning settings.  Staff and students follow the Kallangur State School Responsible behaviour plan at all times (PDF, 489KB)

Absences

If a student is to be absent for any reason, a parent or carer should telephone our school absence line on (07) 3491 5360 at any time and leave a message (child's name, class and reason for absence). Messages will be passed on to class teachers each morning.

A message via the child's sister or brother is an acceptable alternative. If unable to comply with the above, parents or carers should send an explanatory note to the class teacher on the child's return to school. All absences must be explained under the Education Act. Frequent absences will be followed up as student learning may be adversely affected. 

Finance

  • Booklists will be provided on enrolment.
  • The Student Resource Scheme covers essential resources and will be discussed on enrolment. Fees can be paid at the office by cash, eftpos or direct debit from Centrelink.
  • Voluntary contribution funds go to the P&C to improve targeted school resources and services.
  • Refund policy is available on request.
  • Student banking is available through the Commonwealth Bank.

Valuables at school

Money brought to the school should be carried in a secure pocket. It is not to be left in desks or school bags. Property of significant value should not be brought to school unless essential for the learning program e.g. spectacles, sporting equipment. The school cannot accept responsibility for damage or loss and no insurance scheme covers this equipment. 

Mobile phones and other electronic devices

Mobile phones and other electronic devices (e.g. ipods) have become popular items in our modern technological society. We understand that parents may provide their children with phones for security and transportation reasons outside of school time. In line with Education Queensland recommendations, this school's policy on mobile phones is that the device should be handed in to the office staff before school starts and then collected at 2.25 pm.

If there is a need to contact a child during the day, contact must be made via the school office on (07) 3491 5333. Messages will be passed on to the student. If the matter is urgent, we will ensure immediate contact. 

Where students do not follow this policy, parents will be contacted.

Lost property

All possessions brought to school including stationery and clothing must be named and are the responsibility of the owner. Parents should assist children to develop the skills necessary to care for their property. Lost property is displayed at the rear of the office.

No smoking

Our school observes a strict no smoking policy in and around our school site.
