Students have a ‘homeroom’ teacher who delivers most of the class lessons (Maths, Language, Unit of Inquiry – See the Learning at QBS page for more curriculum information).
In addition, students have daily Mandarin lessons, one PE, and one Music lesson per week. These lessons are taken by specialist teachers.
Students also visit the Learning Centre once per week to borrow books and may have lessons with the Teacher Librarian as part of their Unit of Inquiry.
ICT is used as a tool for learning and teaching, where appropriate, in all curriculum areas. The specialist ICT teacher will deliver lessons alongside the class teacher as needed.
Lunch and Snack
Students bring their own snack and lunch to school.
There is no canteen or shop to buy food at Quarry Bay School. There are no facilities for heating or preparation of students’ meals.
Lunch is eaten in the classrooms, while snack is eaten on the playground unless it is raining.
Quarry Bay School promotes ‘healthy’ eating as part of a balanced lifestyle. We would also prefer students minimise waste by using reuseable containers.
Quarry Bay School students proudly wear their uniform. This is an expectation.
It is always pleasing to see the students so well presented in their uniform as it fosters an ethos of high standards in our school community.
Please remember the following:
– ‘Play tattoos’ should not be worn to school – please ensure they are removed.
– Wristbands from events (eg sporting events, amusement centres/parks) should not be worn to school as accessories – please ensure they are removed.
– Socks need to be visible and not hidden below ankles so it appears no socks are being worn at all.
– PE kit requires white trainers – coloured trainers are not uniform attire.
– Black school shoes are worn with uniform.
– Hair accessories are to be blue or black.
– A QBS hat is mandatory for outdoor play.
Please visit the PTA page for information about purchasing school uniforms.
