In another thread about school, I was amazed at how late some schools seemed to start. Our Primary school's core hours are 835am until 3pm. The high school I work at is 830am until 320pm. That gives a good 5 hours and 40 minutes of actual teaching time

Primary school is 8.47(*) to 3.00.

(*) It used to be 8.50 but now they have to go in and be ready at 8.50am.

DS9: 9-3

DS5: 9.15-3.15

At least with DS9 changing the schools, the times mean getting between the two when necessary is relatively practical. And DS9 can almost make it to DS5's school by bus between the two finishing times.

Because with a home room/roll call, recess, lunch and an afternoon pack up that would leave about 4.5 hours of actual lesson time a day!

Primary school kids do 8:55-2:55 with 20 mins recess and a 1 hr lunch.

High schoolers do 8:55-3:25 as the standard hours but my Year 11 boy is doing extension English and Maths so he is starting at 8:00 on Mon-Wed and doing an extra hour on Wed afternoon.

The reason that most schools don't do 9-3 is because they have to stagger the school buses so you will find there is probably a variation in local school times for that reason.

09:10 until 15:10 - plus crunch n' sip, morning tea & lunch = about 4.5 of actual class time.........

How I wish that we lived in this schools catchment zone though 08:00 > 13:15! http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/go-h...9-1226565357025

9-3 NSW public primary.

ETA: glad I'm not in that school's catchment. Finding care for five after school hours would be a huge pain, as evidenced by the numbers of children who are there til 3pm anyway.
